Planning Consent Granted for Phase One of Altair
Nikal has been granted detailed planning permission for Phase One of Altair, Altrincham’s dynamic new £70 million residential and leisure quarter in the town centre.
The decision means that construction on the 4.5 acre mixed-use scheme will start this Summer, with completion of the first phase anticipated in December 2017.
Main contractor, Eric Wright Construction, will commence site clearance works to make way for the construction of an iconic contemporary style building that will house 59 high quality apartments plus ground floor retail leisure units.
The apartments will be delivered by Hillcrest Homes, Nikal’s award winning luxury homebuilding company, and will comprise 36 one bedroom and 23 two bedroom apartments designed by acclaimed Manchester architects, Stephenson Studio.
Each of the apartments will offer statement interiors and an exemplary standard of specification with German designer kitchens, integrated ‘A’ grade appliances and bathrooms and ensuites by Villeroy & Boch. Residents can enjoy private balconies as well as access to a stylish communal roof terrace with far reaching views.
Nikal’s Phase One plans for Altair also include a grand new entrance for Altrincham Ice Rink and a new landscaped pedestrianised area with space for outside seating and pavement cafés.
Outline planning for Altair was granted in 2014 with Nikal working in partnership with Trafford Council.
