Westpoint was constructed on the site of a derelict garage in the Castlefield area of Manchester.
This contemporary six storey mixed-use development utilises every centimetre of its postage stamp sized site and offers excellent quality and attention to detail.
Following the vernacular of existing mills in Castlefield, the mix of brick, stone and glass has created an award-winning residential and commercial scheme.
At the centre of the street façade is a stylish glass lift, which brings elegance and movement to the street scene.
Accommodation includes retail and leisure space on the ground floor, which will help create a sense of community; four duplex penthouses and eight one bed apartments on the upper floors.
All apartments feature generous outdoor spaces. Apartments at the rear of the building have fabulous views across the old Roman Castlefield Fort and the park.
Internally, common areas and apartments are well proportioned and fitted out to a high standard with timber floors. The site was awarded the prestigious Concept for Living (now Northern Housing of the Year) Innovations in Interiors Awards – City Space 2002.
