Outwood Wharf Phase 1 is a prestigious development of 263 Built-to-rent PRS apartment units and townhouses. The building is arranged in 3 blocks around a landscaped courtyard. The building provides 85 carparking spaces and 87 bicycle stands.
Outwood Wharf is serviced by a dedicated concierge and residents have the benefit of an on-site gym. The scheme in its entirety was forward sold to Invesco Real Estate.
The development was delivered in conjunction with a joint venture partner Endeavour Group Holdings Ltd. Construction completed in May 2020. H&J Martin were the construction partner delivering the building on-site.
The building is 18 storeys high and tops out at 56 metres and utilises a unique lean, modern method of construction. Over 3,000 precast concrete sandwich panels were fabricated off-site and lifted into place to form the structure of the building. These panels came to site with bricks pre-pointed and windows pre-fitted and provide a weathertight environment from early in the programme to help drive efficiency and minimise waste.
Did you know?
- Outwood Wharf takes its name from the Manchester, Bolton and Bury Canal which originally ran through part of the site. The canal opened in 1808 and was primarily used to transport coal. During the golden age of the canals in the north west, coal form the Outwood Colliery 15 miles upstream would be transported into Manchester by barge and unloaded at the subject site.
