Hello Row House! The Victorian terrace brought bang up to date
This is Row House, the fourth product in the House by Urban Splash range of modern homes. There are three types of Row House to choose from; two storey, two and a half storey with a large roof terrace, and three storey. Behind the bold, red façade are the same super high ceilings and large windows you’re used to. The very first Row House homes are coming to East Float at Wirral Waters in Merseyside, and it won’t be long before they pop up at some more of our new neighbourhoods across the country.
A first look inside our Mansion House apartments at New Islington
We’ve completed work on our first House by Urban Splash Mansion House apartments at New Islington in Manchester. Created using super sustainable cross laminated timber, these spacious homes have a unique aesthetic, and each overlook the New Islington Marina. Interested? Our team can give you a COVID-safe virtual tour today.
Want to view our homes during lockdown?
You can view many of our homes this lockdown via guided 360-degree, online tours of Urban Splash and House by Urban Splash homes across the country. Escape your own four walls, and book an appointment for a virtual walkthrough of Park Hill in Sheffield, Avro in Manchester and our House by Urban Splash homes in Cambridgeshire, Birmingham and Manchester.
All of our 2020 commercial deals
Businesses have still continued to move into, and retain their spaces in our commercial portfolio, with our team securing more than 50,000 sq ft of lettings across the country last year. Many of the deals were achieved in the last quarter of 2020 at buildings including Matchworks in Liverpool, and Timber Wharf and Beehive Mill in Manchester. We’ve also confirmed two more lettings at Tea Factory in Liverpool which means that the building is now fully let.
This is how we create our award-winning modular homes
This brand-new film gives you a glimpse inside our House by Urban Splash factory, and how we create our award-winning homes there. We precision engineer each floor, adding kitchens, bathrooms and a lick of paint. Then, after a mere 3,383 quality checks, customer homes leave the factory before being driven to neighbourhoods like New Islington, Port Loop or Inholm. Watch it above, and read more about our factory, here.
Home of the month —
Apartment 4.2, Avro, Manchester
Avro is a listed building that's packed with Manchester industrial heritage. Once home to the AV Roe aviation company – not to mention the little-known clerk LS Lowry. We’re now reinventing the space, creating 31 new homes – some of the largest in the city. The final three remain on sale now, including this two bed, two bath home offering more than 1,100 sq ft of living space.
Workspace of the month —
5.04, Boat Shed, Salford Quays
5.04 Boat Shed offers is 182 sq m of brilliantly designed workspace. You’ll find it on the third floor of our redeveloped Boat Shed building, with lots of windows making for lovely views of the River Irwell and our landscaped gardens outside. The building’s in Exchange Quay in Salford Quays, meaning you’re surrounded by great amenities, great businesses, and the Metrolink right outside - connecting your colleagues to central Manchester. There’s onsite parking too. Interested in finding out more? Our team can give you a virtual viewing today.
