Planning Approval for development in Manchester

Mountford Pigott is pleased to announce that our distinctive design proposal for a new Big Yellow in Manchester has received unanimous approval by Manchester City Council Planning Committee.

The six storey building has been designed with simple forms and clear straight lines emphasising the industrial character of the area while expressing the interplay of two rectilinear boxes. The lower box has a solid ‘concrete’ appearance with some relief created by angling the wall towards the vehicular entrance – assisting the building users to navigate the building. The upper box which is clad in Cor-ten steel retains the same orientation but is pushed forward so as to create a tension in the form.

A three-storey high glazed ‘cut-out’ has been formed on the prominent corner to allow interaction with the public realm and to make the building’s function readily legible. Its position responds to the focal point identified in our original site analysis.

The building is located in the Water Street Strategic Regeneration Area that is seeing major regeneration proposals coming forward. It is adjacent the Trinity Island site which has proposals for a mixed use development including three towers the tallest of which is 67 storeys high. So there will be plenty of new customers moving into the area soon.

We have prepared tender documentation and we hope to have a main contractor commence works on site in January 2018.
