Chapelton Masterplan, Manchester, UK

Mixed use framework plan for c. 35 acres of currently rundown industrial space sandwiched between the main Victoria Station and the Mancunian Way inner distributor route.

The plan sought to link the area back to its hinterland and to capitalise on its highly strategic location adjacent to Manchester’s primary train station. Proposed uses include a significant element of new office and business space, hugging the Mancunian Way with a residential core focused on a new river corridor along the river Medlock.
