Richmond Street Townhouses, Manchester

Iceni’s Manchester team secured consent for a new townhouse development on Richmond Street, next to Canal Street, for the innovative and highly successful developer, Watch This Space.

The scheme involved the comprehensive redevelopment of a derelict site to create seven three-bed townhouses with integral garages and one two bed maisonette apartment.

The site is narrow and highly constrained; Iceni had to work collaboratively with the architect, Snook, to realise the development potential and come up with effective solutions to a number of challenges.

The Richmond Street Townhouses are some of the first of their kind in Manchester City Centre, offering accommodation suitable for families, disrupting traditional city centre living and paving the way for more innovative city centre schemes.
