Manox, Manchester


Manox is a mixed-use neighbourhood of 410 homes on a brownfield site in Miles Platting just outside central Manchester along the Rochdale Canal. The design features a variety of different family houses, including apartment buildings at key locations within the masterplan. The new homes are a mix of shared ownership, build to rent, affordable rent, and Rent to Buy. The proposals also include 744sqm of commercial space for local businesses, a community hub, and a café along the canal.

The scheme is designed to be low-carbon and energy efficient with ecological enhancement across every millimetre of the site, water and energy efficient, as well as facilitate maximised use of sustainably-sourced materials and minimal waste.
