One Vesta Street residential development handed over in Manchester

The first residents have now moved into Manchester Life’s One Vesta Street residential development in New Islington, Manchester, delivered by Chapman Taylor.

One Vesta Street project forms part of Phase Two of Manchester Life Development Company’s regeneration and development programme for Ancoats and New Islington on the eastern edge of the city centre.

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 the concept architect, Rafael Vinoly.

The scheme provides 169 private apartments for sale, in a mix of one, two and three-bed residences – eight of which are roof-level duplexes. Facilities include secure parking, cycle storage and a residents’ clubroom.

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 principal public transport hub.

In addition, three separate townhouses of four levels each were built adjacent to the apartment blocks. These were designed to complement the scale of the Islington Wharf Mews and Lock Keeper’s Cottage opposite – helping to integrate the development with the neighbourhood.

Vesta Street is another example of Chapman Taylor's UK-wide record of creating successful and sustainable residential projects. Our experience designing and delivering diverse residential building formats, coupled with our expertise in the modular construction and BtR sectors, makes us ideally placed to help meet the challenges facing the UK residential sector.
