Once the booming centre of the country’s cotton industry, Great Ancoats Street today is the home of post-industrial architecture and some of the city’s most lively restaurants, bars, and cafes.
The area is a much-desired neighbourhood for Gen Y tenants, who constitute 89% of the Manchester city centre’s population growth. With vast improvements in Ancoats, New Islington and the Northern Quarter areas over the last decade, rental demand in the area has gone through the roof, and this has now expanded to the Great Ancoats Street area. With improvements in transport, aesthetics and building work planned for the area, we wanted to summarise the activity planned in the Great Ancoats Street region and why it is good news for investors.
Here’s what is planned for Great Ancoats Street in 2020 and beyond:
The Great Ancoats Street improvement scheme concentrates on improving the look of the area for pedestrians and providing a natural and appealing link for those walking between Ancoats, New Islington and the city of Manchester. In addition to this, new crossing facilities are to be installed, making it easier for pedestrians to cross the roads, thus reducing the risk of accidents.
The Greater Manchester Growth Deal have also provided funding, which will go towards planting more than 70 trees, creating wider pavements and redesigning signage in the area. Creating a more ‘European Plaza’ look and feel to the area.
Angeliki Stogia, Executive member for the environment, planning and transport councillor said: “This improvement scheme for Great Ancoats Street will deliver a more attractive, tree-lined route, with wider pavements and better crossings allowing pedestrians and people on bikes to cross the busy inner ring road more safely.
The scheme also plans to help increase economic growth in and around Manchester city centre. With employment predicted to grow in the city centre, many people will seek housing near their place of work. These improvements will mean that the neighbourhoods around Great Ancoats Street are attractive to developers.
