Far East Consortium International (FEC) has revealed proposals for a new community of 634 homes at Manchester’s Victoria Riverside.

The scheme, in the Red Bank neighbourhood of the Northern Gateway, comprises three towers with a 37-storey building on the corner of Gould Street and Dantzic Street. Two sister buildings of 18 and 26 storeys complete the development.

FEC project director Hilary Brett said: “Sharing our draft proposals for Victoria Riverside is an important day for us. It is a key gateway site and sets the tone for regeneration within Red Bank as part of the Northern Gateway programme with Manchester City Council. We hope the site will play a key role in beginning the transformation of the wider Lower Irk Valley into a thriving collection of successful neighbourhoods. We welcome views from neighbours and residents on our draft proposals.”

Victoria Riverside forms part of the first phase of the £1bn Northern Gateway being delivered in partnership with Manchester City Council. The first phase comprises more than 1,000 new homes which also includes development within Collyhurst and at New Cross Central.
