Bowes Street by MBLA Architects + Urbanists

The first phase of MBLA’s Bowes Street regeneration scheme in Moss Side is now complete with buoyant sales across the 64 renovated properties.

Commissioned by Manchester City Council the masterplan scheme entails the refurbishment and internal remodelling of 141 existing terraced houses and the provision of 10 new 2 into 1 remodelled 3 and 4 bed family houses. The second phase, now commenced, will entail the construction of new 3 and 4 bed family houses all with front and rear gardens, off street car parking and all provided to minimum Level 4 Code for Sustainable Homes. A new public square will be provided as a focal point in the heart of the neighbourhood. To the south of the site, new family housing will also serve to upgrade the existing Bowes Street into an urban boulevard to the south side of which phase 3 of the masterplan will be developed at a later date.
