No. 1 Old Trafford offered an opportunity to start the regeneration of the south bank of this portion of the Manchester Ship Canal, opposite Media city.
From the outset the company wanted to create an environment that was both attractive to live in and architecturally impressive to look at, complementing the proximity the development will have to Daniel Libeskind’s iconic Imperial War Museum North, Michael Wilford’s Lowry Centre and Manchester United’s Old Trafford home. This was a primary driver behind identifying and choosing the multi-award-winning architectural practice 5 Plus who believe in ‘simple elegant design’. Cole Waterhouse wanted the practice to design a bold and brave building that helped define the future direction of this part of the city using quality materials, including heritage brick, whilst ensuring that there was an impressive public realm outside the building to significantly improve the living and working environment for those using the area. It was for that reason they additionally have employed Exterior Architecture who have worked on impressive projects such as Battersea Power Station.
The 214,000 sq ft scheme, next to Victoria Warehouse and the grade II-listed Trafford Road Swing Bridge, will include 139 one-bed apartments, 211 two-bed apartments and four three-bed apartments across two main buildings rising 15 and 18 storeys high.
