We are delighted to offer the opportunity to purchase a unique property in a former cardboard factory where the ground rent is `a cardboard carton, if demanded`. As the first scheme in Manchester to sell `shell space` and provide the opportunity for the owners to become the designers (with the help of an architect), this 1920`s Art Deco warehouse offers bespoke city centre living in the heart of Castlefield. Occupying a prominent position on the banks of the River Irwell, this award winning development offers innovation at its very heart and continues to attract interest in a diverse property market.

This canal facing ground floor apartment boasts an enviable corner aspect and all the features associated with a building of its age. High concrete ceilings. Exposed red brick. Steel girders. There is an abundance of character. Generously proportioned with an estimated 1046 sqft of living space, it`s unique in every sense of the word.
