Manchester will soon become home to a vibrant new neighbourhood, when finished the mixed-use community with strong transport links will be comparable to London’s successful King’s Cross district.
Plans for regeneration surrounding the new Piccadilly HS2 train station. The transformative master plan aims to establish a vibrant and distinct new neighbourhood, Piccadilly Central. Adjacent to Piccadilly station with its impending HS2 (High Speed 2) terminals this new neighbourhood will capitalise on the unrivalled connectivity that HS2 will deliver and create an impactful arrival for those entering the city via the station.
When completed, HS2 will provide a network of high- speed lines that will connect London, the Midlands, the North and Scotland. By improving connectivity the project will increase mobility between businesses, workers and customers and lessen geographical barriers to markets, skills and knowledge.
Manchester will be home to two new HS2 stations, one close to Manchester Airport and the other integrated into Manchester Piccadilly Station. Those living in Manchester will benefit from the service’s efficient journeys, improved journey times and greater passenger capacity.
Much like the major London-based King’s Cross redevelopment, Piccadilly Central will transform the current underused industrial sites in the area into a lively mixed- use community hub, alongside unmatched transport links.
Together with the regenerated Mayfield area; this Piccadilly Central neighbourhood the project will provide new streets, public square, retail space, hotels and community spaces with excellent pedestrian connections. Additionally, opportunity sites can deliver much needed new homes and employment spaces. These new additions to the area will be essential to maintain the city’s vitality and to ensure its commercial viability and economic sustainability.
Radically improving physical connections and the permeability of the city and providing social and cultural activity, Piccadilly Central will become a unique and attractive destination both for visitors and prospective residents.
