Services

Brief

Churchgate Blocks D&E mark the second phase of DeTrafford’s pioneering city centre development which successfully combines the convenience of contemporary inner city living with access to attractive outdoor living space.

Solution

Working closely with Architects, Ollier Smurthwaite, Urban Green developed the public realm scheme to gain detailed planning consent.

The contemporary space follow a shared surface approach that fit with Manual for Streets 2 principles and provides the setting of the modern mixed use buildings.

A tenth floor communal roof garden supports wildflower, barbeque and picnic areas. A new public square contributes to building a sense of community, while an attractive residents’ lounge, cafĂ©, restaurant and bar provide additional amenities.
