Practice dubs mixed-use building a ‘tribute to the city’s past’
Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios has revealed proposals for a 22-storey mixed-use development in Manchester city centre inspired by some of the city’s past architectural glories.
Developer CEG has commissioned the practice to design a replacement building for a 1970s office block opposite the Arndale Centre on the city’s High Street. The scheme, which is still the subject of pre-application consultation, envisages around 360 apartments, as well as new retail and leisure space.
FCBS partner Alex Whitbread said the practice had drawn inspiration from the best architecture in the development site’s immediate surroundings, as well as from 1930s city gem, the grade II-listed Sunlight House.
