The Depot, a major new intergenerational development on the fringe of Manchester city centre, has been shortlisted for the Neighbourhood Transformation Award at this year’s UK Housing Awards.

Designed for Rowlinson, the strategy for The Depot was to respond to a growing need for a diversity in housing by creating a development for all.

More than 300 homes have been created across the six-acre site with a range of apartments, three and four-bedroom family homes and later living options including extra care housing and apartments for the over 55s, developed in line with HAPPI principles.

The UK Housing Awards, sponsored by Inside Housing, celebrate the ingenuity, creativity, passion, and results of housing organisations across the UK and take place this November.

Winners of this year’s awards will be announced on Friday 25 November 2022 at The Point, Manchester.
