We saw something that other people hadn't in old industrial buildings; we thought they were amazing and beautiful, and we thought people should live in them.
From Britannia Mills in Castlefield, to Smithfield Building in the Northern Quarter and Concert Square in Liverpool; we have pioneered city living in the north of England, reinventing old buildings and creating amazing new homes, workspaces and communities.
25 years and nearly 400 awards later we're back doing what we do best with Avro, one of Manchester's last untouched Victorian Mills - and we're working with our old friend, Roger Stephenson, fellow pioneer and architectural legend who helped us transform Smithfield Building all those years ago.
Grade II* Listed, Avro was built in 1825 and was once home to the A. V. Roe aviation company: the founders of British aviation and manufacturers of the iconic Lancaster and Vulcan planes.
We'll celebrate this in the Urban Splash way; reclaiming history not sterilising it, making the best of the past and giving Avro a future.

We're back doing what we do best with Avro lofts, in one of Manchester's last untouched Victorian Mills, Brownsfield Mill.
At Avro, we've created 31 traditional, canalside loft apartments; some of the biggest in Manchester. Set over five floors our one, two and three bedroom lofts range from 829 - 2,600 sq ft, with feature walls of exposed brickwork and cast iron columns. The former triple storey 'Engine House' is now a unique three-storey town house at the heart of the development.
