Environmentally friendly homes planned for Manchester

A scheme involving homes with a green minded design has now been granted permission. Major Manchester developer, Beech Holdings, was recently awarded the green light from Manchester City Council.

The new initiative will see 80 apartments created in a conversion of Mindel House and Bloom Street. Part of the development plans will see the brick warehouses from the Victorian era experience an extensive regeneration. Bloom Street and Mindel House are widely considered to be among the last remaining Victorian warehouses that have not yet been converted in the city centre of Manchester.

Temporarily titled “Mindel + Bloom”, the residential project seeks to retain the industrial appeal of the original buildings, including their character features. This will extend to the property’s surrounds, which will keep the classic cobbled street that divides the two buildings.

Sustainability is a prime concern for Beech Holdings, and it aims to construct developments that work in conjunction with the planet, not against it.

Developers and architects in Chester, Manchester and other northern cities are now seeking to fit new and renovated properties with eco-friendly features in line with government plans.

Apartments in the heritage refurbishment will benefit from air source heat pumps, a heat recovery system and a communal system for heating to lower costs. They will also benefit from cutting-edge kitchens with Bosch appliances and underfloor heating for luxury comfort all year round.

After completion, the new residential scheme will provide 80 individual, low-carbon apartments, with a mix of both one and two-bedroom properties.
