FEC reveals designs for Angel Meadow at NOMA, Manchester

Far East Consortium (FEC) International Limited has revealed the designs for its first project in Manchester – Angel Meadow. The scheme is a £200 million residential development comprising 754 homes across four buildings bordering Angel Meadow Park. It forms part of the city centre’s NOMA neighbourhood, which is extending the city centre northwards with a mix of commercial and residential space.

Gavin Taylor, regional general manager, FEC said: “Angel Meadow provides an unrivalled opportunity to create an international calibre neighbourhood within NOMA in the heart of the City. It’s a privilege to work on such an exciting site for our first development in Manchester.

“Working with 5plus and Planit-IE our plans are to build over 700 new homes of mixed tenure across the four plots, while bringing new commercial and leisure uses to street level, and bringing the park itself into the heart of the community.”

The four plots around Angel Meadow Park are on Gould Street, Aspin Lane and Old Mount Street.

In brief the design proposals include:

• A 41 storey landmark residential tower, which will include large two-bedroom apartments with winter gardens, designed with families in mind. The winter gardens are located every seven levels animating the tower into glazed stacked boxes. The building will have ground floor retail and leisure spaces with a new elevated park with direct links into the Angel Meadow Park

• Two roads – Aspin Street and Old Mount Street, will be closed, in part, to cars. On Aspin Street, the two proposed 22 and 17 storey apartment buildings, will have active ground floor uses bringing Aspin Lane back to life and mending this connection with the City.

• There will be five, three-bedroom townhouses on the ground floor building on Old Mount Street with 131 apartments above. There will be a new route through the building, which is part nine and part 12 storeys, for residents from neighbouring buildings into the Park.

Jon Matthews, 5plus Architects said: “It is clear from our early engagement with the local community that Angel Meadow Park is 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.”

Angel Meadow is just a five minute walk from Victoria Station for mainline rail and Metrolink services. It sits on the edge of the rapidly developing NOMA neighbourhood and is very close to the vibrant Northern Quarter with its many highly successful independent bars, restaurants and music venues.

Manchester Place Chief Executive Paul Beardmore said: “The City continues to need high quality homes to support the region’s economic growth and we are pleased to see the development plans for Angel Meadow being brought forward in detail. It is a significant milestone.”

The designs for Angel Meadow are out for public consultation until 7 April 2017 and in addition to being available online there will be two public exhibitions of plans. The formal planning application is expected to be made to Manchester City Council by end of April.

Subject to planning, building work is expected to begin by the end of the year with the first homes complete in 2019. It is expected the apartments will be mix of tenure with the emphasis being made on long-term occupancy.
