X1 Eastbank, Manchester

Project Type: Residential

The X1 Eastbank site is situated on Manchester’s busy inner ring road, Great Ancoats Street, which forms the edge of the City Centre. Previously used as a car showroom, the site had been used as a car park and as such represented a prominent gap in the urban landscape.

The scheme accommodates 111 apartments including a mixture of 1-bed, 2-bed and 3-bed units with car parking provided at Ground Floor. Approximately half of the apartments are provided with private balconies or terraces and an landscaped communal terrace is provided, for use by residents.

Given the prominent location of the site the scheme has been designed to provide a high quality architectural finish in terms of detailing and materiality.
