Sheppard Robson co-living scheme cleared to go

Sheppard Robson's Echo Street development in Manchester

Manchester towers ‘first of their kind’ in city

Sheppard Robson has won planning permission for a high-density residential scheme in Manchester city centre that combines co-living homes with student accommodation in a high-rise development.

The practice’s Echo Street development brings together 403 co-living units with shared communal space and 94 student units of varying sizes in a scheme that unites towers of 25, 20 and 14 storeys. The student element would deliver a total of 242 beds in a mix of studios and multiple-occupancy flat clusters.
