New images have been released of a new residential development taking shape in Manchester in 2023.

The 33-storey tower of One Port Street will be home to 477 premium and luxury apartments, as well as a pool, a rooftop terrace and a grand reception area with a firepit in it.

Plans for the £154m development were initially rejected for being too tall, but after a storey was shaved off the plans, the building works got the green light to go ahead.

And despite being labelled an ‘absolute abomination’ by those who opposed the plans, you can’t deny that the new CGIs are pretty beautiful.

One Port Street will be the first building in Select Property’s residential brand, the ‘Prestige Collection’, focusing on wellbeing and service.


The landmark building will start to take shape on the outskirts of the Northern Quarter, just off Great Ancoats Street, very soon.

Apartments will range in size from one-bedroom to three-bedrooms, each one inspired by ‘Manchester’s industrial history’ with warehouse and loft-style features that ‘blend elegant style with urban renewal and embrace raw architectural elements including wood, metal, stone and fire’.

The vision for One Port Street is to blend the luxuries of a five-star hotel with the exclusivity of a private members’ club.

It also promises to be a ‘green gateway’ to the city, with 22,000 sq ft of public green space.

Residents will enter their building through a grand reception area centred around a 360° firepit with concierge service.

The 2,000 sq ft leisure suite will feature a private swimming pool and spa pool, a state-of-the-art gym and separate fitness studio, plus more wellness facilities in the form of a ground floor urban garden wellbeing, the new destination will also provide two outdoor spaces – a ground floor urban garden and a rooftop garden terrace.

Then there’s the seventh-floor club lounge Paganini’s, plus co-working spaces, private dining areas and a food outlet on the ground floor.

Adam Price, CEO of Select Property, said: “Launching One Port Street – and our Prestige Collection – marks the culmination of decades’ of experience across the UK’s residential market, creating compelling places to live. One Port Street harnesses that knowledge to create the ultimate residential offer, and there is no better city to do it than Manchester.

“Once complete, the site will not only deliver for its residents, but it will bring greater value for the wider city too, creating an inviting neighbourhood with more green, public spaces and incorporating sustainability measures that will have a lasting positive impact on Manchester and its people for years to come.”

Ian Simpson, Partner at SimpsonHaugh, added: “One Port Street will become as synonymous with the Northern Quarter as Beetham Tower has become for Deansgate. Celebrating its neighbourhood in full, the building has been designed to fuse modern luxury living and all the trappings that brings such as a stunning pool with urban contemporary loft-apartments that Manchester, Brooklyn, and Shoreditch are famous for. Once finished, it will be the ultimate place for professionals to live.”


Price added: “To date, we have sold over £2.6 billion worth of property across multiple brands to our global investors, but One Port Street is our most exciting one yet – situated in the iconic Northern Quarter of the city, it is a bespoke property offering a five-star living experience. As a first-of-its kind destination, One Port Street will quickly become an in-demand postcode in the city and provide a vibrant new residential neighbourhood.”

With 477 apartments, One Port Street will create 59 jobs and will bring £28M of economic impact to the city.

Renaker is the main construction partner on the development and the scheme has been designed by SimpsonHaugh.
