Manchester planners have approved planning for a two-tower residential project in the Great Jackson Street cluster.
The developer behind the £ 350 million project is Great Jackson Street Estates, is controlled by Salford-based investor Aubrey Weis.
Park Place, designed by architect Hodder + Partners, will offer over 1000 apartments in the 56-story towers.
Before the main construction work can begin, extensive preparatory work includes the laying of a main canal with a diameter of 2.6 m, which traverses the 1.4 hectare site. This work is expected to take around 15-18 months.
The building envelope will consist of brick-clad precast concrete pillars around a double-glazed aluminum window system.
The project team includes Civic Engineers as structural engineers and M&E consultant Clancy Advice and QA Edmond Shipway & Partners.
