A new contemporary residency strategically situated in Manchester's New Cross. Designed around the prominent Grade II listed chimney and to a luxury specification, Peelers Yard brings new life into one of Manchester's most Historic Sites.
Peelers yard has been designed to an exceptional specification, perfectly suited for the modern professional seeking both quality and character.
Surrounded by various venues and independent bars, Peelers Yard benefits greatly from a vibrant community and atmosphere. New Cross is a community focused place, offering events that attract people from neighbouring districts, as well as modern street art, a variety of architecture from throughout the ages and an abundance of independent bars, shops, and restaurants.
Manchester Grew rapidly during the first half of the century, largely due to the trade and transport innovations in the area. However, by the early 19th Century, mills and other industries ruled the district.
Goulden Street station was designed by J.G Lynde and created to protect Ancoats, a notoriously lawless area, this required something more akin to a fortress. This resulted in a unique and forceful monumental design.
By 1920, the fire brigade had moved stations, and Peelers Yard became solely a police station. During this time, the population of the surrounding area had grown to roughly 30,000. However, the thriving economic activity generated by nearby industrial factories began to diminish as a result of the decline of the cotton industry in the 1930's. Industry further declined and housing deteriorated.
The cotton industry continued to decline following the second world war, leaving many of the mills derelict. New Cross as a neighbourhood began to fall into the ruin.
In 1992, the building was awarded Grade II listing.
In 2002, the Grade II listed structure was used as a firework store and suffered severe damage during a fire, leaving only the prominent Chimney.
This leads us to now, the stunning new development bringing a long-lost neighbourhood to Peelers Yard, designed around the prominent grade II listed chimney.
Manchester’s rise has been remarkable. This is a world-class city which is growing more rapidly than any of its peers. Named as the UK’s most liveable city year after year by the Economist, and with a booming population to suit, it’s easy to see why Manchester is at the very top of the list for investors from all over the world.
The city centre, in particular, has turned into something truly special. Its economy is estimated to be worth more than £6bn a year by 2025. Furthermore, the City Council has projected that 5,000 extra people are moving to the city centre each year.
Manchester’s skyline has changed beyond recognition in recent years as the city enters its new era as an international city ready to change the world again. There has never been a better time to invest in city centre property and make the most of this boom.
Not to be confused with the Northern Powerhouse. The Northern Gateway project is a £4 billion redevelopment plan, exclusive to Manchester.
The project covers approximately 155 hectares to the north of Manchester city centre between Victoria Station, NOMA and the Northern Quarter in the southwest, and Queens Park and the intermediate Ring Road (Queens Road) to the north-east.
Manchester City Council have partnered with private investors- the Far Eastern Consortium – to deliver a once in a lifetime regeneration project. The Northern Gateway is a unique opportunity set to deliver transformational regeneration on an unprecedented scale in Manchester and helps to fulfil its potential as a truly innovative, sustainable and world-class city. The regeneration of this area to the north-east of the city centre will unlock significant residential-led development that will positively contribute to the growth of Manchester and the wider city region.
The plans include a waterside park, a public square, 15,000 new homes, new schools, health centres, shops, community space and a new transport interchange.
Peelers Yard will benefit from this redevelopment plan, as the development is set in the New Cross area (the southern part of the regeneration, closest to Manchester City Centre)
