Site 2 C has been proposed as mixed use units below and residential above designed byFeatherstone Young.

Malmo Quay Architectural Competition Sketch Ideas This board shows the nine architectural practices which were invited as part of an architectural competition to design proposals for Malmo Quay. The red boxes indicate which architect’s have been selected. Igloo will now work closely with these practices to develop their designs. We really want to know what you think of the initial ideas so this can feed into the next stage of design development.

Lower Steenberg’s Yard Proposals This board shows the mixed-use scheme designed by xsite architecture, for which a planning application will be submitted in the autumn.

Please take a look at the boards above and tell us what your think. We will be launching an online forum to gather comments on the emerging schemes in around a month – so watch this space. But for now there are a number of ways of contacting us. You can email comments to:  [email protected] or use our freepost address: FREEPOST, URBED, 5th Floor, 10 Little Lever Street, M1 1HR or call Emily (an urban designer at URBED) on 0161 200 5500 or you can leave a comment below.

Specifically – tell us what do you think of our sketch ideas for Malmo Quay? We’d love to know before we start developing ideas with the architects so your comments can inform the developing designs.
