Wade Walk (now renamed Mill Court) is a development of thirty 2 bed 3 person apartments in East Manchester close to the City of Manchester Stadium. Surrounded by a post war Local Authority Housing Estate planned on the Radburn principle this site was made possible by the demolition of blocks of maisonettes and shops.

The site is fully enclosed with security an important consideration.  Parking is accessed via an electronically controlled gate. An attractive courtyard and landscaped communal areas are accessed from the private side of the block, whilst access for residents and visitors is on the Mill Street frontage.

The scheme is designed to Lifetime Homes standards, complies with HCA Design Quality Standards and is compliant with Manchester City Council Design for Access 2 criteria.

The scheme is in a highly sustainable position and is highly energy efficient, achieving level 3 of the Code for Sustainable Homes.

An important design element is the creation of central access ‘streets.’ These are lit from full height glazing at both ends and a glass wall overlooking the courtyard. It is hoped that these will give a feeling of community and will inspire interaction which is particularly important as most of the residents are re-housed from an adjacent block which will be demolished.

A fantastic development which has greatly enhanced the area and massively improved the lives of its residents.”
