Plans submitted for five-tower Manchester resi scheme

Plans have been submitted for a five-tower residential scheme on the outskirts of Manchester.

Developer DeTrafford Estates has submitted plans for a mixed-use scheme on Thorncross Close in Castlefield, at the city’s south-western gateway.

DeTrafford will demolish the existing buildings on site and build five new towers, ranging from five to 16 storeys in height, with a total of 419 apartments.

The development will also include more than 32,000 sq ft of retail space at ground-floor level.

The site, just off Ellesmere Road in Castlefield, is close to Cornbrook Metrolink station and Pomona Island, where developer Peel has submitted plans for a number of PRS schemes.

X1 launched the first phase of its major Manchester Waters development in partnership with Peel last month.

The first phase will include 755 flats, with the first completions scheduled for Q1 2019.

DeTrafford Estates previously developed a 71-home scheme on neighbouring Ellesmere Street. The Roof Gardens development, worth nearly £10m, was built by North-west firm Pochin.
