Joint venture partners Capital & Centric and Henry Boot have secured approval from planning authorities to develop Kampus, a £200m mixed-use scheme in the centre of Manchester, UK.

The new scheme has been designed by architects Mecanoo and Shedkm, reported To feature a botanical garden, the project will be built on Aytoun Street and will cover 2.3 acres.

Under the first phase, the scheme will see development of almost 500 flats across two 12-16 storey buildings, whereas the second phase will see the rennovation of two listed mill buildings. The flats will feature retail and leisure spaces at ground level.

"This exciting scheme, which will rejuvenate this area of our city that has been neglected for too long."

Adam Higgins of Capital & Centric was quoted by as saying: “We have worked closely with Manchester city council and importantly, the local community to create this exciting scheme, which will rejuvenate this area of our city that has been neglected for too long.

“The secret garden concept is pivotal to our vision to create a vibrant new bohemian destination for the city.”

The joint venture partners purchased the 2.3 acre Kampus location from Manchester Metropolitan University in 2014.
