Planners have given the go-ahead to build the 11-storey City Gardens apartment building, which will provide 86 flats and commercial space on the groundfloor
City Gardens will sit alongside two other DeTrafford developments, The Sky Gardens and The Roof Gardens, One Ellesmere Street and is part of a wider master plan for the area which could see the provision of 1,300 homes, a public square, courtyards and tree-lined walkways, together with 30,000 sq ft of commercial space.
Work is already underway on phase one, The Roof Gardens, One Ellesmere Street, with all apartments and townhouses sold.
Communal roof gardens on the eighth floor will include a sun terrace and picnic area, while the communal lobby will feature a vertical garden.
Gary Jackson, Founder and Director of DeTrafford Estates Group said: “This approval allows us to move forward with the third phase of our development featuring roof garden living.”
