The winners have been announced for The Pineapples 2020 awards for place, and we're delighted to hear Mayfield Manchester has won the 'Future Place' award. The Pineapples by the Developer Magazine celebrate the urban life of developments and places where people want to live, work and play. We are thrilled to be part of the team delivering this exciting masterplan for the Mayfield Partnership (U+I, Manchester City Council, Transport for Greater Manchester and LCR), along with Studio Egret West and Morris + Co.
"Located adjacent to Manchester’s Piccadilly train station, at 24- acres and with a central, well-connected location, Mayfield is a significant urban regeneration opportunity. In 2016, the Mayfield Partnership (regeneration specialist U+I, Manchester City Council, Transport for Greater Manchester and LCR), was formed with a new brief to ensure the long dormant site reaches its potential. The Partnership’s masterplan for Mayfield will deliver 1,500 homes, 1.6m sq ft of workspace and retail, leisure and hotel space over the next 15 years, creating more than 10,000 full time office, retail and leisure jobs. Central to the plans is the creation of the first new public park in the city centre for 100 years. In February 2020, the Partnership received planning consent for the first phase of development, including the park, 319,900 sq ft of commercial space and a multi- storey car park."
Bennetts Associates is masterplanning a new 24-acre urban quarter in central Manchester, immediately to the south of Piccadilly Station.
