Excelsior Castlefield – High Quality Apartments!

The stunning Excelsior Works development will transform the site of the former Excelsior book binding works into 108 high-quality apartments next to the Bridgewater Canal. Designed by Tim Groom Architects, with interiors by UTH Studios, the development features one, two and three-bedroom apartments being made available for private sale. Selected apartments benefit from balconies and access to a communal roof garden, while a basement car park also provides on-site parking.

Excelsior is a city centre haven that’s ideal for those wanting to live and work in the city. Nestled alongside the canal, residents can step out, or cycle out, directly onto a canal-side footpath. Ideally positioned to enjoy convenient, trafic-free access to both the city centre and MediaCity UK. Ample underground parking and cycle storage provide an easy homecoming for residents as they return home via Excelsior’s impressive grand entrance foyer. Inside, luxury living awaits and a residents’ rooftop garden provides a unique outdoor space to wind down. The development is conveniently positioned within walking distance of Manchester city centre and MediaCityUK. Thus allowing residents a convenient, traffic-free access route to and from home. Excelsior’s prime city centre position is perfect for those seeking access to the city’s business, shopping and recreational facilities.

The high-quality white washed wood effect flooring complements any style of bedroom furniture, while loor-to-ceiling windows lood the room with natural light. Sleek and modern, each apartment has a state-of-the-art kitchen and entertaining space. Fully-fitted with premium quality appliances; every detail has been considered, with soft-close drawers, concealed lighting and solid worktops. The development is located just 14 minutes away from the famous Deansgate. The design responds to the distinct Manchester context of Castlefield and brings back an active frontage to the canal towpath with its stunning double-height entrance. It also reinterprets the architectural history of the site and the old-fashioned printing trays in the fenestration to the new building.
