Didsbury Point is a major mixed-use scheme of approximately 350 houses and apartments and up to 25,550 sq m (275,000 sq. ft.) of commercial space.
Didsbury Point is an urban extension to the vibrant suburb of West Didsbury, conceived as a landmark development for South Manchester. The prominent site fronting the A5103 Princess Road comprises some 13 hectares of redundant Withington General Hospital land, prominently situated in an unrivalled location, midway between the City Centre and Airport.
The development embraces and exceeds the sustainability principles set out by the local authority, with all homes being assessed against the BREEAM environmental assessment standard, and achieved at least a 'Good' rating, and all commercial buildings designed to achieve a 'Very Good' rating.
One Didsbury Point provides a 55,130 sq ft (5122 sq m) Grade A office building with 167 car spaces at the entrance to Didsbury Point. Tenants include ETDE and Optegra. The 1st and 2nd floors are available offering 4,000 sq ft to 27,000 sq ft. Further land is available with consent for office buildings ranging from 12,000 sq ft. Alternative uses will also be considered. For further information visit www.didsburypoint.com
The commercial element of Didsbury Point is a joint venture development by Countryside Properties and Liberty Property Trust.
‘South’ and ‘The Village’, the completed residential elements at Didsbury Point, feature highly contemporary buildings, designed by leading architects Calder Peel. Each of the new homes has individual characteristics and finishes which contribute towards creating a unique and varied street scene. Many of the homes benefit from large flexible living areas that, together with extensive glazing, accentuates the space within the properties. In addition, generous balconies and terraces to the apartments and houses offer the advantage of low maintenance outdoor space.
South at Didsbury Point has won four awards for design excellence including a Building for Life Silver Standard, as well as awards for considerate construction and build quality.
To supplement the existing habitat and vegetation, extensive planting of semi-mature trees was undertaken and an “urban park” has been created. The completed landscaping is designed to provide green corridors for wildlife linking the Urban Park to Paupers Wood.
