​New photos show MeadowSide Plots 2 & 3 approaching completion

Our latest photos show Meadowside Plots 2 & 3 is close to completion.

Chapman Taylor was appointed as Executive Architect to deliver two residential towers as part of Far Eastern Consortium’s MeadowSide development . The 22-storey Gate and 17-Storey Stile buildings provide a total of 286 apartments including one, two, and three-bedroom homes with rooftop penthouses in both buildings. Crisply detailed glazed facades sit above a more solidly expressed base which accommodates amenity facilities for the residents including a boutique lobby, concierge, shared workspace, gym, residents’ lounge, and external terrace overlooking Angel Meadow.

The ground floor area will house a boutique lobby and shared workspace together with independent retail and restaurant units, providing active frontage to the surrounding area. The buildings will include a concierge, gym, residents’ lounge and a terrace overlooking Angel Meadow.

Located at the northern gateway to Manchester city centre, close to the city’s creative heart, best bars and independent shops, the overall MeadowSide development will provide 756 new apartments, penthouses and townhouses across four buildings located around the historically important Angel Meadow parkland.

The wider project involves the phased construction of four residential buildings located around Angel Meadow, which will provide residents with a relaxing parkland space in which to escape the bustle of the city.
