The prominent nature of the site, located on Regent Road at the northern gateway to the City, demanded a high quality landmark design solution for a residential and commercial scheme.
The scheme comprises 307 apartments including 6 townhouses and 326sqm commercial space fronting Regent Road.
The design consists of four main elements. The 28 storey tower acts as a beacon at the gateway with the massing stepping down over three blocks on the corner of Regent Road and Water Street to relate to the scale of existing buildings to the south of the site.
A mixture of one, two and three bed apartments as well as two bedroom duplex apartments are accommodated in the tower with the addition of 6 townhouses activating Water Street.
The layout of the building elements on the site forms a landscaped courtyard facing towards the River Irwell to the Western boundary of the site.
