Capital & Centric submits plans to transform Talbot Mill into 200 flats
October 03, 2017 – UK-based property developer Capital & Centric has submitted plans to convert the site of a Victorian mill, Talbot Mill, into more than 200 flats.
Under the transformation project, which will entail nearly £50m investment, the textile mill on Ellesmere Street and a shared courtyard area will be transformed into apartments.
The 1750,000 sq ft development, which has been designed by ShedKM, will be split across the mill buildings on Ellesmere Street and a new building on Worsley Street.
Capital & Centric co-founder Tim Heatley said: “Talbot is a stunning example of Manchester’s industrial heritage – something the city is quite rightly proud of. Our plans build on the structure’s inherent beauty and create a neighbourhood centred on a shared courtyard garden.
“The essence of a building is in its original features. Our first priority with all our projects is to keep what we can. It’s an essential part of honouring the stories of the thousands of people who’ve passed through Talbot’s doors across the decades.
