The Angel Meadow scheme, designed by 5plus Architects, spans four sites surrounding the existing Angel Meadow Park on the northern fringe of Manchester City Centre.
5plus said the new neighbourhood of spacious, well-considered apartments and town houses with the improved green space at its heart would re-invigorate this historic part of the city".
"Our designs put the historic park at the heart of a new neighbourhood that will provide 756 homes in four distinct buildings and greatly improve access and connectivity with new routes and landscaping," the practice said.
"The priority has been to reactivate this area at street level, reconnecting it to the rest of the NOMA estate and the city centre and to provide a mix of housing from large apartments aimed at families to town houses."
New routes and improved access will reconnect the area to the NOMA estate and wider city with new retail and leisure facilities creating street level activity all round.
Landscaping is not only designed in at ground level, however. In a 40-storey tower at the far end of the park, has winter gardens located every seven levels and a landscaped elevated podium deck which will provide a private garden for residents with retail and leisure space below. A new series of stepped terraces incorporating seating and planting will link the podium to the park.
Work is due to start on the 756-home project, for developer Far East Consortium, early in 2018.
