The Depot, a major new intergenerational development on the fringe of Manchester city centre, has been named Best Development (urban outside London) at this year’s Inside Housing Development Awards.

The Inside Housing Development Awards celebrate the very best residential developments across the UK, with categories recognising the teams, schemes, tenures, and solutions that have made a positive impact on local communities.

The Best Development Award recognises a housing development that demonstrates ambition and creates desirable environment for people to live and play.

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.

Commenting on the award win, Associate, David Coulson, said: "We are delighted that The Depot has been celebrated at this year's Inside Housing Development Awards. The project has made a significant, positive impact on the area by creating a new, sustainable neighbourhood that supports the needs of a wide range of people."
