Victoria House, New Development Announced !
16th November 2018
Our latest development project, Victoria House, Manchester was announced this week at a public consultation. The feedback proved very positive from the attendees who saw it in context of a master plan for regeneration of a wider city area.
The new 23-storey building will comprise 158 one, two and three bedroom homes. There will be communal roof space and a variety of residential amenities including a gym, community room and dining areas. There will also be ground floor retail units set back from the road and cycle parking.
The site is located within the emerging Portugal Street East and HS2 Manchester Piccadilly Stategic Regeneration Framework (SRF). This means that there are plans for the wider regeneration of the area and this development will contribute to these plans. As part of the plans, Forshaw Land and Property Group, alongside other landowners, will be making a significant financial contribution to the development of new public realm within the Portugal Street East SRF. The vision is to revitalise the area and create a new neighbourhood with a new feel and sense of place.
The Square which will sit adjacent to the Victoria House site will be a pedestrian area around a central lawn and planted trees and active frontages. The Green will form a central focus to the neighbourhood and will sit to the south. This will be a communal park with seating and natural play areas. The Avenue which will provide a pedestrian route through the emerging neighbourhood will be tree lined with additional seating. These plans will be subject to a separate planning application which has already been subject to an online public consultation.
Lyndon Forshaw, Managing Director of Forshaw Land and Property Group, states: “We appreciate local residents, interested parties and businesses taking the time to come and give their views on our proposed development, and are delighted with the positive feedback we’ve received so far.
We feel our proposals will deliver a landmark development which provide both much-needed new homes and a high quality outdoor space that will be used and enjoyed by both visitors to and residents of the emerging Portugal Street East neighbourhood.
We are still working through the final details of the scheme, and are committed to working with the local community. We are grateful to all those who have responded, and we will ensure feedback received during the consultation period is fully considered in our planning application.”
