169 waterside apartments

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. The residential 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.

Overlooking Ashton Canal

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.

Integrated with the wider neighbourhood

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.

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.
