Broadside was completed in 2019 and is one of the latest developments within the New Cross area of the city centre. New Cross is positioned between the Northern Quarter, Ancoats, NOMA and Shudehill areas of the city and has recently undergone extensive regeneration. The New Cross district was once the centre of production for Penny Broadsides in the 18th and 19th century. Like many of the surrounding areas, New Cross began to decline in the mid 20th Century as the city’s industrial landscape changed; however, it retained many of its familiar and much-loved landmarks, such as the Crown and Kettle pub, the Marble Arch Inn, and the Flatiron Building on the junction of Rochdale Road and Sudell Street. It is now being transformed into one of the most exciting new neighbourhoods in Manchester once again, making it a hub of activity. New Cross is the last piece of the Manchester city centre jigsaw, creating an opportunity unlike any other. New Cross Central will be at the heart of this transformation.
Broadside has 274 apartments across two buildings, ranging from 1-3 bedrooms and all are private rental properties. There is a communal landscaped courtyard that residents can make use of.
