Hulme Living Leaf Street Housing
The area around Leaf Street in Hulme, just outside Manchester city centre, has a history of urban renewal. The typical Victorian terraced houses were demolished after World War II to make room for the infamous Hulme Crescents, the largest social housing project in the United Kingdom at the time.

New Islington will be home to the very first Mansion House, modular apartments taking design inspiration from the much-loved converted Georgian terrace. Mansion House will feature small groups of eight to ten apartments with one shared entrance, so home owners can take ownership of their shared spaces, and get to know the neighbours. Commercial space will also be available in a number of units on the ground floor.

Innovative community housing project in Trafford

An innovative community housing project in Trafford has marked its first birthday with a celebration event.

Limelight, developed by Trafford Housing Trust, is an over 55’s Extra Care scheme on St Bride’s Way in Old Trafford, home to 69 residents. Residents, the local community and families came to its Community Christmas and Anniversary celebration.

Originally opening in December 2017, Limelight offers apartments for Shared Ownership and rent, alongside a range of care packages, support, community facilities and social activities for residents. It also has an on-site health hub, library, pharmacy, opticians, hair and beauty hub, café and nursery, which are all open to the public.

David Teasdale, Limelight centre manager, said: “Limelight is more than just a building – it is an amazing, innovative, community health and wellbeing hub, which makes a difference to people’s lives. It allows over 55’s to live independently, but with care and support when needed, and to have access to resident only facilities, community services and social activities. We are very proud of Limelight and the homes we have created here.”

The flagship development also recently won two housing sector awards – Best Older People’s Housing Development and Best Affordable Housing Development.

Limelight has 81 Extra Care apartments for Shared Ownership through Laurus Homes and rent through Trafford Housing Trust. Trafford Housing Trust partnered with developer Willmott Dixon and architect PRP for the scheme.
