|New Cross Apartments, Manchester, UK
|Residential, Public Realm
As part of the wider masterplan for the New Cross area, New Cross Apartments is a landmark project that provides a high quality residential public realm within Manchester city centre. Rooftop gardens offer stunning views across the city skyline together with a sheltered courtyard that provides an attractive community space.
New Cross apartments form a key part of the wider New Cross masterplan in Manchester. This high-class residential apartment development provides contemporary landscape design within this city centre neighbourhood. Gillespies has designed two roof gardens and a central courtyard landscape to compliment the striking architecture of the new development.
The private roof gardens - with stunning views of the city skyline - offer residents flexible spaces for outdoor community events. The careful planting design was used to create privacy and year-round interest.
The bespoke public realm design of the central courtyard creates a welcoming sense of arrival, with distinctive planting and seating opportunities. Strategic pedestrian routes are accommodated through the development in accordance with the aims of the wider masterplan.
