Hong Kong-based developer Far East Consortium has revealed plans for a £200m residential development in Manchester.
FEC, which has a portfolio of property in Australia, China and South-east Asia, outlined its vision to deliver more than 750 homes across the Angel Meadow scheme, which forms part of Manchester’s flagship NOMA development.
FEC was appointed as developer for the Angel Meadow site last August.
Designs unveiled this week include a 41-storey tower, which features winter gardens on every seventh storey, as well as ground-floor retail and leisure units, all of which will link to the existing Angel Meadow Park.
They also feature two further towers of 22 and 17 storeys, as well as a smaller building which ranges between nine and 12 storeys in height.
Designed by 5plus Architects, the Angel Meadow project is open for public consultation until 7 April this year, with a formal planning application expected by the end of the month.
Subject to planning, the project is expected to get under way by the end of 2017, with the first homes complete by 2019.
5plus Architects director Jon Matthews said: “It is clear from our early engagement with the local community that Angel Meadow Park is a much cherished amenity and by developing new homes around it, we hope to see the area thrive.
“Our proposals give everything back to the street. New connections in and around the park are created, older connections are enhanced. The buildings are designed to work as a family of modern homes around the meadow – reinforcing the sense of place.”
