A signature building in Manchester’s busy commercial district, 1 New York Street sets a new standard for others to follow.
High quality city centre development 1 New York Street is a dramatic addition to the Manchester streetscape.
Providing more than 9,000m2 of office space over 12 storeys and 400m2 of ground floor retail space, the new scheme anchors the surrounding public realm development.
Designed to be flexible enough to accommodate multi-occupancy tenants, the building features a striking aluminium and glass façade and offers stunning views out over the city and beyond.
Our alternative foundation design dramatically reduced the number of piles needed and the internal pilecap sizes required by raking the mini piles. This allowed them to be set closer together and reduced cutting of the existing concrete slab.
A change to raking columns around the perimeter meant their foundations could be formed at a low level inside the existing structure, rather than from the street above which is adjacent to live overhead tramway cables.
A green roof features a bio-diverse system of sedum, wild flower turf, rubble and rocks designed to attract the rare black redstart back into the city centre.
