Public Realm

Plans approved for No1 Old Trafford

A planning application for the redevelopment of a strategic gateway site on the border of Manchester and Trafford has been granted. Exterior Architecture worked with client Cole Waterhouse, architects 5Plus and the wider design team to develop site wide public realm proposals that look beyond the client’s immediate boundary and integrate the development into the wider Trafford Wharf area. The proposals include the integration of the iconic Sky Hook sculptures into the development along with a significant increase in green infrastructure along this stretch of the River Irwell corridor.

It is hoped that this development will kick start the wider regeneration of the Trafford Wharf and A56 corridor.
