Master Plan & Development Study
Urban Strategies were retained to prepare a master plan and development strategy for a new research district in the North Campus area of the University of Manchester, adjacent to the City Centre. The project establishes a framework to revitalize derelict campus lands into a new mixed-use discovery district with a focus on knowledge industry research-related activity. Thorough research and analysis of globally significant research & technology hubs was undertaken to provide insight on public/private investment opportunities, recognizing the City’s wider regeneration objectives. The proposal establishes a new district anchored by research and university facilities and balanced with significant office and housing provision, within a green, environmentally remediated campus landscape.
