Project Value:

£12 million

Oxid House is a landmark development on a key nodal site within the vibrant Northern Quarter area of Manchester City Centre.

Our scheme aims to promote city centre living and sustainable development principles.

The site, formerly a vacant car park, sits within the setting of the Grade II Listed Wentwood Building and in between the Northern Quarter and Ancoats conservation areas.

We have responded with a contemporary design that will greatly enhance the setting by creating a new urban square. We have incorporated the listed building to form a stunning backdrop and of course reference Manchester’s industrial heritage.

Clad in naturally oxidised cor-ten weathering steel, triangulated panels with hexagon perforations, the new development forms a striking addition to the area with sleek lines, high quality materials and a unique identity.

The scheme is scheduled for completion in Summer 2019 and will consist of 119 apartments for open market sales, two commercial units to ground floor and a roof garden providing views over the city centre, the development forms part of an emerging regeneration masterplan for the area responding to the growing needs of the city in response to the proposed HS2 infrastructure plan.
