First look at the final homes to go on sale in the city's waterfront neighbourhood New Islington

By Phoebe Jobling

The final phase of homes to go on sale at New Islington have now been revealed.

A total of 13 townhouses will be completed this year as part of the latest Marina Gardens development, located just minutes from New Islington Marina.

New images from regeneration company House by Urban Splash have now been released to show exactly what the latest properties in the city's waterfront neighbourhood will look like.

These townhouses are the last-ever homes to be built in New Islington, which started its regeneration 20 years ago.


The central Manchester area is now considered one of the 'best places to live in the UK', according to the Sunday Times.

Residents of New Islington have access to a wealth of work spaces, an Ofsted 'Outstanding' primary school, independent shops, new cafes, bars and restaurants along the Marina front, gyms and green spaces such as Cotton Fields Park and New Islington Marina.

Described as 'family homes', the 13 new townhouses will offer city centre living across three floors.

Ranging from three to four bedrooms, the spacious homes will feature an open-plan kitchen living and dining area, big windows, high ceilings and a pitched roof.

Each modern home will come complete with a private garden, a terrace overlooking Ashton Canal, a driveway and access to a shared 'resident's only' communal space.

Toby Brown from House by Urban Splash said: “This is a pivotal time for us as we create the final family houses at New Islington.

“While we have scope for future apartments here, these are the last houses that will be on offer in an area that has become very popular with families in recent years.

"This is a suburban enclave in the clutches of central Manchester, with the delights of the city enhanced by a school, green space, a Marina and all you’d expect from a modern community. We can’t wait to welcome our new residents in."

House by Urban Splash has formed hundreds of houses and apartments in New Islington since the regeneration began, with more than a third of them 'affordable'.

The previous set of homes to go on sale at Stubbs Mews on the north eastern end of New Islington now completely sold out.
