Marshall CDP will host a digital public consultation to launch emerging proposals for One City Road in Manchester city centre.
A virtual consultation will go live from Wednesday 12th August and will remain accessible for over two weeks until Monday 31st August.
Marshall CDP along with their project team is preparing to submit a planning application to Manchester City Council. Proposals include the redevelopment of an existing, 1980s office building to be replaced with two new office developments.
The plans outline two proposed buildings providing 370,000 sq. ft. of high-quality Grade A office space across 11 and 14 storeys. The proposed scheme has been designed within the guidance of Manchester City Council’s recently endorsed SRF for First Street.
The team involved in the project has significant experience and knowledge of the First Street masterplan. The scheme is designed by Jon Matthews Architects. Planit is a landscape architect and Deloitte is leading on planning consultancy.
Due to current restrictions put in place by the Government to safeguard against Covid-19 the consultation will take place across digital platforms.
“Our proposed plans present an opportunity to deliver high-quality office accommodation in a sustainable, thriving and eclectic neighbourhood.
We have selected a project team that understands the wider First Street SRF and who has worked on the scheme previously. They understand the context of the One City Road site in relation to the wider scheme and our aim to create an attractive environment that complements the surrounding neighbours.
We are presenting plans digitally and hope to gain some interesting insight and thoughts from the public. We welcome all suggestions and look forward to seeing the responses.”
(Simon Marshall, managing director of Marshall CDP)
