Plant supply to Chapel Wharf apartments, Manchester

A new community of almost 1,000 concept apartments in the centre of Manchester will benefit from nearly 8,000 of our plants.

The Chapel Wharf development will see four towers between 12 and 22 storeys high created on the banks of the River Irwell, next to the five-star Lowry Hotel.

The one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments are mostly open plan with a private balcony or terrace and will be partially constructed off-site using the very latest manufacturing techniques.

Part of a significant regeneration of the Chapel Street area by developer Dandara, the scheme will also create public spaces, walkways and parking for almost 400 cars.

Working with Ashlea Ltd, we provided over 1,500 ferns and grasses, 3,000 herbaceous plants, over 3,000 shrubs and over 50 trees to help create a green oasis in the communal areas, with trees including Himalayan birch, Sorbus aucuparia (Rowan), Amelanchier lamarckii (Juneberry) and Betula pendula (Silver birch) all included in the order.

Wayne Dand, Contracts Director of Ashlea Limited, said “ We are delighted with the outcome of this project at Chapel Wharf. As always Johnsons Of Whixley have excelled themselves in working closely with us on the supply and delivery from start to finish. “

Herbaceous species include more than 600 Bergenia Silberlicht (elephant’s ears), 500 English lavender plants and almost 150 of the Johnsons Blue variety of geranium.

More than 700 of the evergreen shrub Euonymus Fortunei Emerald Gaiety’ along with hundreds of grasses and ferns were also provided.

Last Christmas, we supplied festive foliage to the nearby Spinningfields district, home to around 200 businesses, retailers such as Mulberry and high-end restaurants including The Ivy and Restaurant MCR.
