Allied London changing Manchester’s skyline with new St. John’s development


A northern powerhouse with incredible residential and commercial opportunities, Manchester is upping its investment game. The team from Allied London reveal their vision for a lifestyle in the sky. By Stephen Penn

When it comes to bespoke luxury living, a booming economy and diverse investment opportunities, most property buyers would set their sights on London.

But thanks to big ideas and an even bigger investment ethos, the north of England is witnessing an impressive renaissance. At the forefront of this transformation is Allied London, who create mixed-use destinations that reshape cities. ­

The company’s development of the ultra-innovative business district Spinningfields has completely repositioned Manchester, attracting world-class occupiers such as Royal Bank of Scotland, PwC, and restaurants D&D London and ­The Ivy.

And they’re not stopping there. ­The latest project from the innovative firm is St. John’s, a 19 acre site strategically located between Spinningfields and Castlefield. Formerly home to Granada TV, St. John’s will be centred on culture, enterprise and living.

As with Spinningfields, living at St. John’s will expand far beyond the home environment with independent shops, cafes and restaurants. Enhancing the cultural element is Factory, a game-changing arts facility and cultural heavyweight that has been referred to as the ‘Guggenheim of the North’.

In addition, across the development are pioneering workspace units that combine to form Enterprise City – the destination for modern Manchester. Included in Enterprise City are iconic buildings such as the historic Old Granada Studios and Bonded Warehouse, which will include TV, film, music and radio studios. ­

These elements create a unique inventory connecting people, industry and culture. But the most eye-catching feature of all will be One St. John’s. Nicknamed ‘­The Tower’, it will be the gateway to the wider St John’s neighbourhood and Manchester’s tallest storey building upon completion. ­

The building will feature 300 apartments alongside a double height entrance space, a leading hotel brand, meeting and event spaces, a signature restaurant, world-class concierge service, parking, and wellness areas including a spa, pool, yoga room, health services and high-tech gym.

Soon to become a new landmark for Manchester, the design of ­The Tower has been heavily influenced by the iconic skyscrapers of New York and Chicago which dramatically changed city skylines from the 1930s. ­

The team at Allied London say life inside ­The Tower will be unlike anything Manchester has seen to date, with a focus on exceptionally designed spaces to work, live, stay and experience. Elegance and detail will shine through with the finest fittings and finishes for these extraordinary contemporary homes in the sky.
