Angel Meadow, Manchester
A landmark scheme for a historically significant part of the city

Far East Consortium Ltd

Location: Manchester
Value: £160 million
Size: 756 units
Service: Architecture

The Angel Meadow development spans four sites surrounding the historically significant Angel Meadow Park. It is situated in a prominent location on the northern fringe of Manchester City Centre and the southern fringe of the future regeneration site of the Northern Gateway.

Our designs put the historic park at the heart of a new neighbourhood that will provide 756 homes in four distinct buildings and greatly improve access and connectivity with new routes and landscaping.

The priority has been to reactivate this area at street level, reconnecting it to the rest of the NOMA estate and the city centre and to provide a mix of housing from large apartments aimed at families to town houses.

A 40-storey tower will sit at the far end of the park, a marker to visibly extend the city centre northwards. We have included winter gardens located every seven levels which animate the tower into a series of glazed stacked boxes.

A landscaped elevated podium deck will provide a private garden for residents with retail and leisure space below and a new series of stepped terraces incorporating seating and planting will link the podium to the park.

The materials used within the development have been carefully selected to reflect the rich industrial heritage in this part of Manchester whilst being unashamedly modern.

“Working with 5plus Architects, we believe we have produced a scheme of true international calibre, which makes Angel Meadow Park the focal point for the growing community.”
