A major housing development has been approved for the former Atlas Engineering site off Chapel Street.
The development will provide:
- Erection of 64 no. dwellings comprising of:
- 28 x two bedroom apartments with associated 28 space car park and communal bin storage area;
- 22 x three bedroom houses;
- 6 x four bedroom houses;
- 8 x four bedroom houses with garages;
- boundary treatments (including walls, railings gates and fences), formation of new access road linking Elbow Street and Stanhope Street and landscaping following demolition of existing buildings.
This will be a significant improvement as this site has been derelict land for many years. Developers Mulbury will start work in Spring 2017.
David Wroe, head of Mulbury Living, said:
“This site provides an excellent opportunity to increase the supply of high-quality, sustainable family homes in Levenshulme. By regenerating a site that has fallen into disrepair, these homes will also have a significant positive impact on the local area, including a new street layout and landscaping.
The development has been designed with respect for the existing homes in the area. They will be of a modern appearance with the use of red-facing brick and rendered gables, while the apartment block will acknowledge the architecture of the former Atlas Mill.”
