An exciting new community hub is on the horizon, brought to Manchester’s New Cross district by social impact developer CAPITAL&CENTRIC, in partnership with Kamani Property Group. The two companies have recently submitted a planning application for a £37m scheme in the hopes of transforming a derelict site, located on Swan Street, into 118 new apartments, ground floor workspaces, and lots for local businesses, such as cafés, to occupy.

The New Cross district can be found near the Northern Quarter. The site, which is opposite the iconic Band on the Wall venue, will breathe new life into the area, and assert it as a bold and dynamic neighbourhood. Should the proposal be accepted, this project will feature shared roof terraces, maximising outdoor space, design-led apartments of varying sizes, and a huge 270m art canvas on the front of the building to showcase local and international artists on a massive scale.

Co-founded by Tim Heatley and Adam Higgins, CAPITAL&CENTRIC currently has five projects totalling £500m under construction, and was recently featured in the BBC2 documentary, ‘Manctopia’. A decision on the planning application is expected from Manchester City Council in the Spring. The same area will also become home to Detroit-style pizzeria Ramona. Find out more here.
