Manchester’s London Road Fire Station is set to become the latest Hive of Activity
Plans for a redevelopment of Manchester’s London Road Fire Station were released last week announcing the project of turning the Victorian building into a “hive of activity for the city”. The plans outline a regeneration and adaptation of the Grade-II listed building with areas used for commercial use and others for spaces such as a boutique hotel, a wellness facility and a gym whilst the coroners court will be preserved and used to host events and functions. The central courtyard will become the “social heart” of the redevelopment offering ranging cuisines and beverages around the edge, alongside retail and leisure facilities. With the building directly opposite Piccadilly Station, the location of this new development will be welcomed by Central Manchester.
Along the adjoining Whitworth Road, is set to be the popular new development Barclay House, offering a central location to ninety outstandingly stylish apartments in the repurposing of a landmark hundred-year old building.
The building’s imposing stature has been retained whilst skillfully transforming the interior into a choice of practical, stylish, beautifully equipped apartments. With its central location, residents will be within a short stroll to the city’s world-class universities, theatres, arenas, cinema’s, concert halls and night scene.
With prices starting from £159,890 and expected NET yields of between 5-6%, this investment will attract young working professionals, couples and students all desperate to live in the centre of one of the busiest and well-known cities in the UK.
