It spearheaded the Northern Gateway, an investment partnership between Far East Consortium (FEC) and Manchester City Council to deliver more than 15,000 new homes across the north side of central Manchester over the next decade.

MeadowSide borders Angel Meadow, part of the 20-acre NOMA neighbourhood, north of Manchester city centre.

This 12-storey reinforced concrete frame building provided 131, one, two and three bed apartments together with five 3 bed town houses and commercial units.
