    Is this Manchester's coolest community?

    Back in 2000, Urban Splash won the bid to transform Manchester’s notorious Cardroom Estate into a brand-new urban neighbourhood.

    We worked with the legendary architect Will Alsop, our public and private partners, and the existing local community to design a masterplan. We celebrated and elevated the best of what the site had to offer and delivered all of the amenities necessary for new families and businesses to move in and thrive.

    Fast forward to today, and we have successfully transformed New Islington into one of Manchester’s coolest communities, filled with homes, workspaces, community amenities, green space, canals and its very own marina!

    Transforming New Islington

    Living in New Islington

    Location is always fairly near the top of the list for most people looking for a property, but the community around that location is just as important. Andrew and Chris already knew the area was thriving, but since moving in have been equally impressed by the sense of community in the area.

    “We had an opportunity and we moved into an area that is regenerating very rapidly,” Chris told us. “It has a fantastic reputation for food, drink, socialising – two minutes’ walk across the canal and there’s some superb pubs, bars, restaurants. It’s a really great place to be.”

    Andrew agrees: “It’s the community’s shared values and shared spirit that makes it – it’s a really nice place to live.”



    New Islington is now considered part of central Manchester, an extension of the Northern Quarter and the neighbouring Ancoats Urban Village.

    Buzzy areas, unspoiled by commercialism, where locals love to hang out due to the area’s independent creative spirit, offer an eclectic range of food and entertainment away from the throng.

    Pollen Bakery, Trove, Ancoats Coffee Co, Rudy’s Pizza and the Hope Mill Theatre all opened recently, the last by a couple of twenty-somethings who saw the Victorian Warehouse for sale on Gumtree.

    “We get involved with the community and give our customers a chance to meet and get to know our suppliers.”

    Mital Morar
    Owner, Ancoats General Store

    “We wouldn’t have done it for any other building - we fell in love with it. We have no concept other than feeding people and providing good quality food.”

    Nick Johnson
    Director of Altrincham Market & Mackie Mayor

    "I’d always dreamt of having the café/roastery set up, mirroring what was going on in London. I liked the history of the area and the fact it was known as one of the world’s first industrial suburbs."

    Jamie Bolands
    Founder, Ancoats Coffee

    “We wanted to know how everybody else makes beer and to work out how to make it even better.”

    “We’re endlessly experimenting to create the best pizza we can. I’m obsessed with pizza - always have been.”

    Co-owner, Rudy’s Pizza

    What the paper's say

    “Calling all early adopters: if you’re looking to grab a piece of Manchester’s reinvention as England’s most exciting (and liveable) big city, this is where to look … a surprisingly smart residential district is taking shape amid the huge warehouses and along the canal, where the New Islington Marina is one of the city’s most promising developments.”

    The Sunday Times

    “When the sun is shining this marina is something of a city centre paradise - and it reflects the industrial heritage of Manchester, while busily carving itself a new future.”
