Green light for new luxury apartments in Altrincham town centre

The refurbishment work will take six months.

Vacant office space in Altrincham town centre is to be turned into four luxury apartments after being given the green light by Trafford Council.

Altrincham developer 21 living is to turn 47 George Street - above Monkhouse uniform shop - into the three one-bed and one two-bed apartments, which have been designed by Ollier Smurthwaite Architects.

The refurbishment programme, which has required a change of use for the Victorian property, will take six months.

The apartments, which will range in size between 450 and 850 sq ft, will feature a high-quality internal fit out and specification, including herringbone flooring, Italian porcelain and brass fixtures.

The apartments are located above Monkhouse on George Street

“We are delighted to be on home soil, bringing forward a scheme that represents our development style and ambition to identify niche sites and bring them to life," said Luke Powell, managing director of 21 living.

"George Street has allowed the team to be creative and sympathetic to the period features, and to restore the building’s glory in a prominent location in the town centre.

“Altrincham continues to drive demand with its vibrant town centre and wealth of amenities, bars and restaurants, plus its excellent connectivity to Manchester and the region. We are delighted to respond to the market with our high-quality homes.”

Marketed by Buy Association, the apartments range in price from £250k, with two sold off-plan already.

RPS acted on behalf of 21 Living to acquire the building, and Paul Butler Associates were the planning consultants. Interior design for the apartments was completed by Bossy Homes.
