Generation secures approval for Toast Rack

Plans by Toast Rack developer Generation to build a residential scheme on the outskirts of Manchester city centre have been approved.

The New Brunswick development comprises a block of 16 apartments, some of which have already been acquired by local buyers. The site is less than ten minutes’ walk from Piccadilly station, with local landmarks including the grade II-listed O2 Apollo Manchester and Ardwick Green.

Work is scheduled to start onsite on the scheme, which has a projected 12-month construction period, before the end of 2017.

Shehzad Chaudhri, director at Generation, said: “New Brunswick is one of a number of sites that Generation is looking at close to the city centre. We hope to be in a position to make further announcements in the coming months.”

Ollier Smurthwaite Architects designed the scheme and Paul Butler Associates is the planning consultant. Generation is the developer of the iconic Toast Rack site, which is located at the former Manchester Metropolitan University Hollings Campus in Fallowfield.
