Regeneration company Urban Splash has launched a brand new residential phase of New Islington in Manchester, as the first House by Urban Splash Town House homes have arrived onsite at Piercy Street.
As with all House by Urban Splash homes – they’ve been built in a factory in Alfreton in the East Midlands. The construction process has seen each storey of each home transported to Manchester via road, before then being craned into place onsite.
The accelerated speed of construction means that the 17, three-storey homes in this phase will be ready for occupancy as soon as the Summer. They will bring a new population to the eastern end of New Islington on a street adjacent to the New Islington Metrolink stop, the Ashton Canal, the Cotton Field Park, Marina – and just a few minutes walk from the city centre and Ancoats.
A real alternative to moving out of Manchester, the homes offer parking, a garden, and other perceived suburban amenities – but in central Manchester; Urban Splash residential director Guy Ackernley explains: “We’re thrilled to bring these new homes to the market, giving buyers in Manchester the chance to own a house in the city that’ll be ready to move into next summer.
“Boasting all of the perks of suburbia, these spacious family homes will keep a multitude of buyers in the city – people whose needs haven’t necessarily been catered for with Manchester’s urban offering of old.”
Offering three and four bedroom options, the Town House homes also offer a number of flexible layouts, high ceilings, oversized windows and generous living space. Each home has a private terrace, car parking, as well as access to the Piercy Street communal garden – a beautiful shared space for residents overlooking the Ashton Canal.
Residents can also enjoy the OFSTED-outstanding New Islington Free School, health centre, marina and a wide variety of local award-winning eateries, bars and the award-winning Pollen Bakery.
Away from Town House, Urban Splash is also onsite creating the innovative Mansion House apartments by New Islington Marina, as well as the city’s largest apartments at Avro on Great Ancoats Street – homes which will all be available for occupation within the next year to 18 months.
Some of the final homes will then arrive at New Islington next year with the launch of customisable Town House homes at Stubbs Mews which can be built to customer specifications; Guy continued: “We’re creating a real mix of new homes around Ancoats and New Islington and still have more up our sleeve for January.
