​ Kampus residential development edging towards completion in Central Manchester

The eagerly anticipated Kampus residential scheme is moving closer to completion on a prime site in Central Manchester.

The development’s North Block, one of the site’s two new buildings, has now completed, delivering 140 one- and two-bedroom apartments which will be open for viewings in April. The rest of the scheme, including the new-build South Block, and three reconfigured existing buildings, are due to complete within months.

The Kampus site, formerly part of Manchester Metropolitan University, will see 533 apartments being delivered in new-build and refurbished buildings entirely for the Build-to-Rent sector, plus a mix of flexible, commercial spaces. Each building has its own distinct architectural character, meaning that the scheme caters for a wide range of tastes.

Joint venture developer partners, Capital & Centric and Henry Boot Developments, plan to create two floors of independent restaurants and bars around a lush garden, adjacent to the Rochdale Canal. The development will provide much-needed green spaces and a relaxing environment for residents of, and visitors to, Kampus.

Sitting adjacent to Manchester’s famous Canal Street, the project retains an 11-storey, 1960s former office tower, which will be extensively refurbished after being stripped back to the original concrete frame and extended by three storeys. The former academic buildings, built decades after the tower, have been demolished to make way for the new-build elements, which will be tied into the tower building.

Completing the site are two listed, former warehouse buildings, which will be refurbished and transformed to complement the wider scheme by Liverpool-based shedkm.

Residents will also benefit from on-site management, a private landscaped podium, secure parking, cycle spaces and unparalleled views across Manchester.

The Kampus scheme was designed by Dutch architects Mecanoo, with Chapman Taylor progressing the project as Delivery Architect and Exterior Architecture advising as Landscape Architect on behalf of the Main Contractor, Mount Anvil.
