site progress in manchester
Phase 1 stripping of the slate roof at Crusader Works for Capital & Centric commenced last week marking the start of the remodelling of upper floor duplex apartments. These will feature new large roof lights and secluded roof terraces with south facing city views. Terraces will enjoy views into a centralised landscaped courtyard offering a private communal garden framed with cloistered walkways and planted window boxes.
An extensive programme of structural repairs to existing structural and heritage elements are also underway internally, many of which will be exposed within a range of contemporary apartments types.
The adjacent 10 storey Phoenix development will add an additional 75 apartments bringing the total of both schemes to 198. The Phoenix apartments will have a different flavour, incorporating modern concrete ceilings and contemporary timber floors. The steel structure has now been completed and work is progressing well on the façade and internal spaces.
