Project Description

Deansgate Square

A four towered residential development required GIA input from early stage design through to planning approval in 2016

GIA Rights of Light Deansgate Square

This high profile residential-led development is located at the Owen Street car park site south of Manchester City Centre. The development comprises nearly 1,500 apartments across four sleek towers ranging from 38-64 storeys.

GIA worked closely with the client on this scheme to provide Daylight and Sunlight services leading up to the successful submission of the planning application including input into the Environment Statement. The application was granted in April 2016.

The four-tower scheme by Simpson Haugh and Partners will see a cluster of buildings of 37, 44, 50 and 66-storeys high. It will be two storeys taller than Manchester’s current tallest building, the Beetham Tower and will transform Manchester’s skyline.
