Regeneration : The Roof Gardens
Client : De Trafford Estates Group
Paul Butler Associates Ltd secured planning permission on behalf of De Trafford Estates Group for the redevelopment of land at Ellesmere Street, Castlefield, Manchester with a 71 dwelling residential scheme. Over two-thirds of the scheme's dwellings comprise family townhouses, with the remaining 22 being apartments.
In addition to acting as planning agent, The Practice prepared a Planning and Heritage Statement and Archaeological Desk-Based Assessment in support of the application. The scheme was justified on the basis that its design was unique, providing a form of housing that would attract family living within the City Centre whilst providing ample amenity space in the form of roof gardens.
The scheme is currently under construction and is due for completion in early 2017.
