Project Summary

A striking new development of 232 Build to Rent (BTR) apartments, The Trilogy has been designed and constructed “to the highest of standards”. Framed around three towers (Trilogy North, Trilogy West and Trilogy East), the scheme spans 165,000 square feet and features a mix of one, two and three bedroom apartments in the heart of Castlefield – a rejuvenated inner-city conservation area in Manchester. All three contemporary blocks are interlinked through a central hub at ground level and centred around a landscaped courtyard. Co-working space, communal gardens, a residents’ lounge, cycle storage, and 75 car parking spaces, all developed “with the resident in mind”, make The Trilogy “more than just a home”.

The detail

Praised for its build “quality” and described as “exceptional”, The Trilogy is a stand-out BTR development that provides an impressive gateway to the approach to Manchester city centre.

Works began in July 2016 ahead of practical completion in April 2019. The triangular site houses two buildings, consisting of nine and 12 storeys, which are aligned along Chester Road, with the corresponding eight storey block situated on Ellesmere Street.

A mixture of traditional brickwork, incorporating relief brickwork details, bespoke curtain walls, and cladding designs featuring deep recessed windows with contrasting splays, help maximise the residents’ views of the city.

Designed by AEW Architects, an interior design specialist was engaged to enhance the communal areas and provide a chic feel, akin to a high-end boutique hotel.

The Trilogy is a continuation of our relationship with Glenbrook in the North West of England, where additional residential projects in the city include Erie Basin in Salford Quays (270 units) and Cornbrook (280 units) which is adjacent to The Trilogy at Trentham Street

“Both the design and quality of these newly completed buildings are exceptional and we believe future residents will be highly impressed.”
