Mulbury unveils £60m plans for Manchester’s New Cross district

4th March 2020

Mulbury has submitted plans to create three new apartment schemes in Manchester’s New Cross district.

The proposed developments, on sites in Bendix Street, Oldham Road and Goulden Street, would create a total of 378 new apartments.

The Bendix Street scheme would see a 13-storey building of 161 apartments developed where the site meets the corner of Thompson Street and OIdham Road. It would feature communal lounges, an extensive roof terrace and ground floor commercial space

The Oldham Road development would see 144 apartments created over 12-storeys, also with a residents’ lounge, roof terrace, and ground floor commercial space.

A smaller scheme of 73 apartments in Goulden Street will see the grade II-listed chimney of the former Goulden Street police, fire and ambulance station retained as part of the development. Several original cast iron columns would also be retained along with the historic site entrance and parts of the perimeter wall.

Mulbury is working with Tim Groom Architects on the three schemes. Deloitte Real Estate is planning consultant for the developments.

Nick Leggett, senior development manager for Mulbury, said: “We’re proud to playing our part in the regeneration of New Cross and the wider Northern Gateway project, supporting Manchester City Council’s strategic growth development aspirations.

“These three developments represent a significant investment in one of the city centre’s most exciting, emerging areas. They will bring inspiring, well-designed new buildings to New Cross while respecting existing buildings and heritage assets.”

The plans are expected to be considered by Manchester City Council in July 2020.
