Alumni Buildings Ancoats Manchester M4



Alumni Buildings Ancoats Manchester M4. The development will provide in total 20 apartments to include duplex’s and penthouses from 1 ,2 and 3 bedroom apartments.  The Penthouse apartments will benefit from a parking space each, there will be a subscription car club service operated by Alphabet, part of the BMW Group for the other apartments which provides access to vehicles on a reservation basis as needed on a pay-as-you-go system.

Situated in the Ancoats area of Manchester, Alumni Buildings is just a short walk away from the Northern Quarter, five minutes from the centre of Manchester, and has excellent transport links in and out of the city via road and public transport, making this development a must buy for both home-owners and buy to let investors alike.

Alumni Building has two distinct sections, a conversion of the existing Victorian buildings fronting George Leigh Street and a wholly modern addition to the corner of the site fronting both George Leigh Street and Cotton Street. The two building elements are arranged around a secure central courtyard garden area for residents.

The conversion section offers a carefully considered approach to the re-use of the buildings, the scale of the original generously proportioned floor-to-ceiling heights is retained as are any key architectural features. Large windows provide plenty of natural light to the generous living spaces, many with views over the City skyline. Ground floor homes have their own front door, either directly off George Leigh Street or from the courtyard.

The new addition to Alumni provides the best of contemporary apartment living in a purpose-built, modern structure. Spacious and well-appointed with generous floor to ceiling windows in most apartments, the building is a direct contrast to the Victorian conversion but suitably compliments its older neighbour.

Internally however both blocks share many similarities, high quality finishes and excellent build quality with German manufactured kitchens and premium bathrooms boasting fittings by Villeroy & Boch. A range of upgrades and bespoke enhancements are offered to make your home at Alumni truly unique.
