Green light for Bennetts’ 24ha Manchester plan

Inside a revamped Manchester Piccadilly Station

Strategic regeneration framework for Piccadilly Station area approved by city council

A Bennetts Associates-designed regeneration masterplan for the area surrounding Manchester Piccadilly Station has been approved by the city council

Bennetts said the framework centred around the positioning of Manchester Piccadilly as a “one station solution” and the “transformation of under-utilised and poorly connected lands” into a series of “neighbourhoods of choice”.
