A planning application has been put forward by Rowlinson Constructions and Buttress to redevelop the former Stagecoach site in Moss Side into a large-scale residential scheme.
The plans propose building 258 homes on the six-acre site. This includes 204 one to three bedroom apartments, 72 of which will be retirement living apartments, and 54 two and three-storey family homes.
Proposals to construct a community health hub have also been lodged as part of the application.
The site was marketed by Manchester Place, a partnership between the City Council and the Homes and Communities Agency with the intention of bringing forward a substantial residential development that complimented the regeneration of the wider Moss Side area.
Rowlinsons were the successful bidder and have now brought forward their planning application for the site.
David Chilton, Director of Development at Rowlinson Constructions, said: “The Stagecoach site lies at the heart of the Moss Side and this development forms a key part of the wider strategy to improve housing and facilities for the community.
“By increasing the choice of housing in the area we are also aiming to cater to the needs of Manchester’s growing population by encouraging more families to settle in Moss Side.”
Ian Beaumont, Director at Buttress, added: “The designs we have developed have been informed the character of the surrounding neighbourhood and aim to link the new development with Moss Side’s existing housing stock to create a place that complements and enriches the local area.
“We are pleased to be working with Rowlinson Constructions on this project and look forward to taking another step towards regenerating the area.”
