City Buildings, Manchester

Set in Manchester's recently developed Millennium Quarter, the site lies within a conservation area adjacent to Victoria Railway Station - one of the most architecturally outstanding areas in Manchester City Centre. Development proposals include the sympathetic refurbishment of the Grade II Listed City Buildings, and a new-building element adjacent to provide a mixed-use City Centre scheme comprising basement care parking, ground floor retail and leisure uses, and offices and residential apartment on the upper floors.
