Chapman Taylor delivering One Vesta Street residential development in Manchester

Construction work is advancing at a pace on the One Vesta Street residential development in Ancoats, Manchester, with the building now watertight and awaiting cladding works.

One Vesta Street is one of Manchester Life Development Company's Phase Two developments across Ancoats and New Islington.

Following the successful delivery of two previous Manchester Life schemes – Sawmill Court and One Cutting Room Square – Eric Wright Construction appointed Chapman Taylor to develop the detailed design created by Manchester Life's concept architect for the scheme, Rafael Vinoly.

The scheme will provide 169 one, two and three-bed apartments along with three four-bed townhouses for sale.

Eight of the apartments are roof-level duplexes. The townhouses are designed to complement the scale of the Islington Wharf Mews and Lock Keeper's Cottage opposite – helping to integrate the development with the neighbourhood.

The eight and nine-storey apartment blocks enjoy the benefit of a waterfront location adjacent to the Ashton Canal, close to the New Islington tram stop and within a ten-minute walk of Piccadilly, Manchester's main public transport hub. Ground floor apartments and communal residents' facilities include outside terraces overlooking the waterfront.

The site will have 62 secure surface parking spaces and secure parking for 132 bicycles.
