Milliner’s Wharf is located in East Manchester and is a mixed-use residential/commercial development in two phases.
The first phase is a single, 8 storey building providing 252 contemporary canal-side apartments. Architecture519 redesigned the scheme and obtained detailed planning approval before undertaking the construction working drawing package for the completed building. Each apartment incorporated sprinklers, enabling it to be open-plan, without the need for internal fire lobbies. This created an open-plan living space within each, which feels generous and light.
As lead consultant, Architecture519 delivered the project on site, working with German sub-contractors who supplied the external envelope as a single works package. The finished building remained true to the uncompromising planning-approved design. Phase II of the development will provide office space, retail space and an additional 400 apartments, located within three blocks ranging from eight to twenty six storeys.
