Green Quarter, Manchester


Greenquarter is the biggest mixed-use development ever undertaken in Manchester.  The regeneration of a 5 acre brown-field site created the first new park in the city centre for 80 years and provided 1,500 apartments, 127,000 sq ft of Grade-A commercial space, restaurant, shops, gym and a 200-bed hotel.  We were commissioned by Crosby Homes to design residential phases 1 to 5, along with a purpose-built three-storey marketing suite.


All apartments, bathrooms and common areas offer a specification and appeal over and above standard city centre apartments.  The neutral colour palette, branded sanitary-ware and quality finishes saw the development of what was described as the ‘Crosby perfect apartment’.  Circulation space was minimised within the buildings which gave smaller apartments but with the same overall internal spaces driving gross to nets to 92%.  The bathroom design for the fourth phase Jefferson Place was awarded ‘Best Bathroom Design 2006 by Designer Magazine.
