​Islington Square

New Islington, the third of the government's Millennium Communities is an ambitious and progressive regeneration project on the fringe of Manchester City Centre.

Invited Housing

Designed by FAT Ltd, Islington Square is the third of the government's Millennium Communities on the fringe of Manchester City Centre and has been awarded an EcoHomes Excellent Rating.

This successful collaboration with FAT has resulted in fascinating designs, with interiors that reflect the lifestyles of residents. The houses feature homework spaces for children, terraces, and open-plan kitchen/dining spaces. Residents can even choose to personalise their new homes with decorative balconies, bird boxes, hanging baskets and the use of different colours.

The residents moved into their new homes in March 2006 and the project has generated a huge amount of interest from the media and critical acclaim. The scheme has an EcoHomes Excellent Rating.
