Works Starts on ‘Residenza’ in Ancoats

Hillcrest Homes has commenced work on the construction of 14 contemporary homes on one of the most desirable streets in Ancoats, Manchester.

Residenza‘ will be a new addition to historic George Leigh Street; home to a row of characterful red brick terraced houses, believed to be erected in the early 1800’s.

This part of Ancoats is known as ‘Little Italy‘ after Italian immigrants, seeking employment in the booming cotton industry, moved to the area and made it their ‘residenza’ in the mid to late 19th Century.  It’s still home to many Italian families and St. Michael’s Church, on George Leigh Street, is the starting point for the fantastic annual ‘Madonna Del Rosario’ procession.

The 14 new homes have been designed in partnership with acclaimed award winning architects, Calderpeel FGP, and cast a respectful nod to their beloved neighbours. Also constructed from characterful red brick with slate roofs, the new arrivals will provide contemporary accommodation over four levels incorporating four bedrooms, an open plan kitchen with dining area and a lounge that extends to a private garden deck via sliding glazed doors. On the ground floor, each property will have an integrated garage with spaces for two cars and provisions for an electric vehicle charging port.

Work on the foundations for the development has already started and Hillcrest is welcoming early expressions of interest with a brochure due in February 2016.

CGI images of the proposed scheme are available to view in the ‘Current Developments‘ section of this website along with an animation.
