Boddington Brewery Tower Plans

The famous former Strangeways Boddingtons Brewery in Manchester is set for a £250 million redevelopment.

Outline plans for the mixed use scheme will see new offices, a leisure complex and 480 new homes built in a series of low rise blocks, mostly five to eight stories tall, around new landscaped public space centered around a new public square.

A new landmark residential tower of approximately 20 floors will stand on one corner of the site on the northern side of New Bridge Street from MEN Arena and is bounded by Great Ducie Street to the west.

The site has laid unused since the Boddingtons Brewery controversially closed in 2005 outraging beer lovers everywhere ending the Mancunian association with the bitter that had begun in 1778.

Developers do however plan to retain hints of the site's illustrious alcoholic past as the iconic industrial chimney of the brewery will be restored to its former glory. Previous plans proposed in 2005 had suggested that it would have to be demolished were overturned after a local campaign proved successful.

The developers of the project, Ask Developments and Reality Estates, hope that the nod to history will be enough to convince Manchester City Council to approve the scheme paving the way for detailed design work to begin - HKR are rumoured to be the choice of architect for this next stage.
