AEW Help Bring Residential to King Street
We’re delighted to announce that our 24-apartment scheme on Manchester’s King Street has received planning approval from Manchester City Council.
Together with client DTZ Investors and Project Manager Cogent BC, we have developed proposals to reconfigure 58-66 King Street to bring city-centre living to the famous shopping destination. The scheme includes 24 one- and two-bedroom apartments over four floors. The apartments will offer luxury accommodation for rental.
The new development includes the refurbishment and conversion of a former retail and office unit to the upper parts of three historic buildings into residential accommodation including a new entrance and ancillary space at ground and basement level, high-end finishes and new mechanical and electrical services.
The works will be in keeping with the buildings historical nature, character and listed status of 62 King Street by retaining the existing features.
Tom Royston from DTZ Investors said: “It is our vision to create a brand for King Street where all components are complementary. We are delighted that the residential scheme we have submitted for planning has been approved. This scheme not only mirrors our vision for the brand and our retail and office space offering but also adds another aspect to the famous district.
“City centre living is on the rise across Manchester. King Street offers a mass of amenities in its immediate surroundings which will make it a brilliant place to call home. Most of the residential offering features high-rise towers so we hope to offer something a bit different with character on King Street.
Director Phil Hepworth said of the milestone:
“With the aim to provide luxury accommodation befitting this prestigious address, our design strategy has been to utilise the existing building and layout to its maximum advantage, retaining as much of the historical building and its features as possible to create a unique residential offer. We’re delighted to see the scheme now achieve planning.”
Following approval, work is set to start on site in Spring 2022 with completion scheduled for Q3 of 2023.
