WCN Editorial Team 31 May 2016 EUROPE BUILDINGS

Muse Developments, in collaboration with Network Rail, has submitted a planning application for a £185M mixed-use project in Manchester city centre.

The proposed project will be located on a 2.5-acre site on Corporation Street, which is currently a surface-level car park, and will include three new buildings; a 13,900sq m, Grade A, eight-storey office and two residential buildings.

The 20- and 25-storey residential buildings, part of Network Rail’s commitment to unlock publically-owned land to build new homes, will contain up to 520 one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments.

The development will also include a gym, 24-hour concierge, communal residents’ lounge, cycle storage and a roof garden.

Muse Developments’ director David Burkinshaw said: “This is an exciting time for this area of Manchester as a number of key developments are now coming to fruition.

“New Victoria presents a unique opportunity to deliver a landmark development next to the city centre’s prime leisure and retail attractions and one of the North West’s main transport hubs. New Victoria offers an unparalleled location and an outstanding development opportunity.”

Muse is working with architect Sheppard Robson and Arup on detailed design proposals for the project.
