The emerging Piccadilly East neighbourhood (as outlined in the Portugal Street East SRF) will become an important and vibrant new neighbourhood in the City Centre.
Located behind Piccadilly station and close to Ancoats and the Northern Quarter, the new neighbourhood will be clearly visible to those arriving into Piccadilly by train. Piccadilly East will become a new neighbourhood and destination for local people to eat, shop and socialise.
Developments in the area will be connected by flowing high quality public realm, creating attractive new streetscapes and a clear sense of place.
These new areas of public space will be delivered and funded by the on-site developers, which includes Packaged Living.
Public realm strategy
The wider public realm proposals are based around two new, vibrant public spaces; The Park and The Square.
These spaces are joined by The Avenue, which connects the development.
