Affordable, sustainable living close to Manchester city centre.
Designed for Southway Housing Trust, Didsbury Point is a new apartment development that creates contemporary, attractive opportunities for living close to the city centre of Manchester.
The scheme brings one of the remaining brownfield sites at Didsbury Point into active use as an affordable apartment development. 76 one and two-bedroom apartments will be created within the scheme, 30 of which will be available for affordable rent and 46 of which will be offered for shared ownership.
Key to the scheme is the creation of a sustainable building and community, and the development has been designed with Passivhaus principles in mind.
Also included within the proposals is a landscaped podium garden, which will encourage biodiversity and create opportunities for residents to socialise, helping to generate a sense of community within the scheme.
At ground floor level, a Manchester Health and Care Commissioning medical centre will also be created to provide GP services to the local community.
The scheme has been designed to respond to the scale, massing and material palette of the adjacent developments and seeks to complement the existing streetscape, offering a defined edge to the development that aims to reinstate the existing Boulevard.
