Excelsior Works is a vibrant new apartment block on the previous Excelsior Mill site, situated along Bridgewater Canal in Manchester. This beautiful location has been transformed into a collection of 108 contemporary apartments. The mill used to print and bind books and is part of Manchester’s industrial heritage. The new apartments were designed by Tim Groom Architects with a direct approach of modernisation and style. 

“We wanted to create a very sophisticated place for owner-occupiers but with usable communal areas like the lounge-workspace and coffee areas that overlook onto the canal.” Nick Legget, senior development manager at Mulbury.“We are really pleased with it, I don’t think there is anything else with this level of finish and space in the city.”

The sophisticated style was extended to the outdoor roof garden with a romantic timber pergola overlooking a communal seating area that has Bailey Streetscene’s Deacon Cube, Greengate Benches, Picnic Tables and Sun Loungers. Bordering the terrace are the company's INSPIRA steel planters, in differing heights and powder coated in a stunning dark grey to suit the modern interior finish of the apartments.

The planters create space for biodiversity with a range of flora. The space is a private garden for residents to enjoy and relax during their leisure time. With views of the Manchester skyline and a range of seating options available, whether lounging on the recliners or sitting reading at the picnic tables. There's something for everyone. 

Testimonial - Andrew Watson - Optimised Environments Ltd

“At Excelsior Works, Bailey Streetscene were able to work with us to produce a suite of furniture that met our aspirations for the communal terrace.  This flexible and collaborative approach allowed the scheme to be delivered within the technical constraints of the roof top setting.“
