Handed over on Friday 27th November 2020, St George’s Gardens is part of a wider large scale DeTrafford Residential Masterplan Development. Comprising of two separate blocks, joined as one building, with a total of 138 apartments over 10 floors, with ground floor commercial unit, car parking and communal residents’ roof top garden, overlooking Manchester City Centre.

St George’s Gardens emulates the style and elegance of the adjacent St George’s church with the external façade materials such as the Jura Limestone and brickwork deliberately chosen to complement the surroundings. The brief was to ensure the building was sympathetic to the church, with the overall height standing no taller than the spire and the materials were to compliment the remaining phases of the DeTrafford scheme. The design intent has paid homage to the church’s grandeur with the East facing facade reflecting the church in the chamfered glass frontage. As a result, the makeup of the building has followed suit, ensuring it is no less than this ideal.

The interiors indulge mid-century decadence with accents of walnut in the apartment entrance doors, kitchen units and bathroom cabinetry. Smooth, classic herringbone flooring with a tonal blend, compliments the luxurious carpets in the bedrooms and stylish bathrooms. Matt black sockets and ironmongery add a contemporary twist to the interiors alongside feature lighting and smart controlled heating to match today’s modern living requirements. Small elements of colour have been added to the sun-rooms and bedrooms to complement the overall contemporary feel of the apartments.

Each apartment features its own private glazed sun-room and a communal roof garden, which embodies a core DeTrafford brand principle of providing innovative use of outdoor space within city centre living.

Taking in the stunning views of the adjacent church, the ground floor commercial space will house an establishment that compliments the exceptional quality of the development.
