​Doubling in size

"Technology and media is a rapidly growing sector in Manchester, which is now considered the second largest creative and digital hub in Europe. MediaCityUK has been a key trigger in the explosion of creative start-ups and national relocations”.

Against this background, the £1 billion, 211,000m², second phase of MediaCityUK gained planning consent in September 2016 and triggered the start of the next step on the journey of establishing MediaCityUK into a sustainable mixed-use community.

​Doubling in ambition

Already home to the BBC, ITV, University of Salford and over 250 creative media businesses, MediaCityUK is a major digital media hub, centre of learning and established visitor destination.

A mix of new office, retail and leisure uses with a substantial residential component

The Phase 2 scheme includes a major residential component, comprising 1,800 private sale and build-to-rent city apartments and town houses. It will also deliver over 55,000m² of additional office space, retail and leisure uses, as well as a sequence of new public spaces.

Co-ordination of several designers using BIM

We co-ordinated multiple architects, many using different software packages, throughout the design development process. All project outputs were driven from BIM models that Chapman Taylor created, including planning drawings, area schedules, 3D views and other elements.

Chapman Taylor’s role on Phase 2 includes the development of the overall masterplan and individual plot briefs, coordinating the work of six other architects on ten plots and also designing three of the buildings, including; a 470 unit build-to-rent apartment building with ground floor restaurants surrounding a landscaped court, an 11,000m² BCO ‘Grade A’ office building, and a 1,050 space multi-storey car park, with office, live/work space, energy centre and an LED ‘media wall’.
