The Mayfield regeneration scheme, which will see the transformation of a 26-acre derelict site, has been unanimously approved by Manchester City Council
The approval of the Mayfield scheme represents one of the UK’s largest regeneration opportunities.
As part of the first phase plans, 319,900 sq ft of commercial space across two buildings will be delivered. Bennetts Associates is designing The Poulton building whilst Morris + Company have envisioned The Republic.
Studio Egret West is the urban designers for Mayfield and will is also the landscape architects for the new 6.5-acre Mayfield Park. The layered history of the site has informed every element of the framework plan, which comprises approximately 1,500 homes, one million square metres of office space, and a 350-bedroom hotel, as well as retail and leisure facilities.
Mayfield Park will become the first public park to be created in the city for 100 years.
The Mayfield Partnership
Mayfield Park, the new workspaces and car park will sit alongside a range of historic buildings, including the landmark former station on Fairfield Street which is being retained and redeveloped as part of the wider regeneration plans.
The vast depot has already been transformed into a new live music venue, Depot Mayfield, which helped to bring 330,000 visitors to Mayfield in 2019 after more than 30 years of decline.
