The Castings comprises 352 apartments, a gym, rooftop terrace and co-working space for residents

The Castings, a brand-new Build To Rent community in the up-and-coming Piccadilly East, will open its doors to residents in May 2024.

The 352 homes to rent in Manchstester’s newest neighbourhood, will sit at the heart of a vibrant creative hub located just behind Manchester Piccadilly train station.

The development is owned by CDL Hospitality Trust (CDLHT), which also owns Manchester’s 5 * hotel The Lowry, and is bringing new life to the neighbourhood with its range of studio, 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments, with viewings of the show-apartments ready to book soon.  

The new lifestyle-led development will also feature a new yoga room and gym, a games room, private dining spaces and a work hub. At ground floor level there are three retail and F&B units ranging from 400 sq ft to 3,000 sq ft which will soon provide amenity for residents and those in the surrounding area.

The Castings is anchored within the city’s most exciting new neighbourhood, Piccadilly East, which was named in the Sunday Times coveted lists of best places to live, and sits conveniently adjacent to Ancoats, New Islington and the Northern Quarter.

Piccadilly East is already home to some of Manchester’s most sought-after venues including the highly anticipated Co-Op Live; food, drink & live entertainment venue, Diecast; Ducie Street Warehouse & Blok gym; as well as a host of Manchester-based breweries including Cloudwater, Track and Manchester Union.  

The site, built in an area steeped in rich industrial history, pays homage to its past with the name The Castings derived from pouring molten metals and other materials into moulds. The design-led apartments are inspired by these industrial shapes, flowing forms and molten textures.

On the imminent launch, The Castings community manager, Dave Evans, comments: “In just a couple of months, we’ll be welcoming residents into our new community. The focus for The Castings has been to create much more than just apartments; it’s a whole new lifestyle, with the best service and living experience that Manchester has to offer.

Piccadilly East is a really exciting area to be part of which already contains some of the most exciting venues within the city, it’s the next generation of Manchester, and following on from the footsteps of Ancoats we hope to continue to create the next bustling creative hub in the city.” 

The prices for the new build-to-rent scheme start from £1150 per month for a studio apartment, £1250 for a 1-bed apartment, £1525 per month for a 2-bed and £2175 for a 3-bed apartment.

The first residents to the Piccadilly East community can view the apartments in The Castings from March 2024, with move-in dates from June 2024.
