Plans for Mayfield project announced
Plans for the first phase of the Mayfield project, one of the largest development projects in Manchester, England, were announced. The project is said to cost £ 1.1 billion.
The Mayfield project will be built on an area of 300 acres. The project will be built in an area at Mayfield Station, which is next to Fairfield Street and next to Piccadilly Station.
The first phase of the project will be built on Baring Street as an eight-storey commercial office development of 90 square meters. The project will also include a 550-story multi-storey car park.
The houses that will be built in the project will pass through the land of the Medlock River. The project will host a 6.5-acre public park.
Applications for mass housing will begin in May. The applicants are scheduled to undergo a community consultation period in May, organized by the Mayfield Partnership for LCR, Manchester City Council, Transport for Greater Manchester and U + I.
Architect Studio Egret West, Mayfield Park’s main planner and Bennetts Associates, is the architect of commercial development.
The Mayfield project will have 1,500 homes, 810,000 m2 of office space, 650 bedrooms, retail and entertainment. Mayfield is expected to create more than 7,500 jobs.
Adrian Lee, development director at LCR, said: “Mayfield will be an exemplar of what can be achieved when the public and private sectors come together to combine their skills, assets and expertise; a truly distinctive place which will deliver commercial and social value in equal measure and a magnet for enterprising and creative people and organisations.”
Sir Richard Leese, leader of Manchester City Council, added: “Mayfield represents a once-in-a-generation opportunity to create an almost entirely new district in the city centre. We’re confident that the quality of the design and architecture, aligned with the unique park we are creating, will help us attract international businesses seeking the best possible environment for their employees.”
