The partnership will see, as phase one of the programme, the provision of more than 830 homes in Ancoats and New Islington, bringing significant impetus to both areas and helping to complete their redevelopment.

How does Oxygen Manchester look like?
The proposed development has been distilled to 3 specific elements: Plinth, Podium and Upper.
The base of the building reflects a human scale. Townhouses wrap around the site responding to the scale of Piccadilly Village and providing street activity and attractive frontage across the site. The upper floor apartment entrances and a generous reception face onto Store Street at the centre of the building increasing the pedestrian activity on this frontage. A commercial unit is located on the Great Ancoats Street end of the building where it will benefit from a highly visible location, and a small retail kiosk, ideal for coffee shop or florist, at the opposite end of the building on Store Street further activating the streetscape with pedestrian activity.
The podium level sits above the townhouses and is set back from the building footprint physically separating the plinth of the building from the residential apartments above. The Podium level provides both internal and external amenity space for residents, going beyond the individual living space creating a new benchmark in urban living.
Apartments occupy the upper floors of the building over the podium. The building is broken down into three distinct blocks by the visible and animated lift and stair cores, each affording natural daylight into common areas. The split blocks provide a large amount of dual aspect apartments with unique city wide views. The scale of the building rising towards Great Ancoats Street provides a key focal point at this key city fringe site. Two basement levels addressing the level changes across the site provide parking and stores for residents.
