First Street Living at Square Gardens

Manchester City Centre


An innovative co-living residential development.


To meet growing demand for high quality new housing in the city.


Plans to extend the residential offer to complement First Street’s vibrant neighbourhood are in an advanced stage.  The centrepiece of the development is a 44 storey tower together with a series of smaller buildings offering one to five bedroom homes along with studio apartments ranging in size from compact to deluxe.  Weaved into the design and sitting at the heart of the scheme is a new public square as well as restaurants, a gym and leisure space.
