St. John’s Place: A Home on the heritage and history of Manchester

HONG KONG, 4 October 2016 – The award winning Allied London is developing a gateway building to the historic district in Manchester. St. John's Place derives inspiration from the original modern era towers of New York and Chicago, while perfectly fits in with its surroundings and the long standing heritage and history of the City of Manchester. The developer has appointed JLL as the sole agent and released the units for sales in Hong Kong. The asking prices of the flats start at £212,000 (HKD2.12 million). ​

Inspired by History

The 1830s Grade 1 listed warehouse, the Bonded Warehouse, and the UK's first passenger railway combined to form the backdrop for the new living village at St. John's and gives the building a certain degree of charm that only such a heritage can instil.

The 50-storey St. John's Place provides 287 units sized range between 412 and 2,730 sq. ft. The project has one, two and three-bedrooms units. Influenced by these early buildings, St. John's place is designed as an elegant and classic tower. Its form and shape is simple; its look is timeless; its materials are traditional, while its interiors, is made up of a series of natural materials. 

The first ten floors will be the Nadler Hotel, one of the premier hotel operators in London's Soho district and an ideal partner in Manchester. Sitting above are several amenity floors, cafés, restaurants, health and wellbeing facilities, meeting areas, as well as rooms and spaces, exclusively for St. John's Place residents. Below sits the garden, a beautiful green space for a quiet retreat.

The top 12 floors contain the winter garden apartments where the outside comes inside providing an internal winter garden space to create a different experience.

Timeless Details

The same standards are applied to all apartment in the complex, be it small or large, each space shares the fine touches and attention to detail that Allied London is known for.

The living room is the focal point of the apartment, with iconic furniture and contemporary finishes. The kitchen has an open plan layout with dining connecting with the living room space, with beautiful durable quality materials in practical and innovative applications. The bedroom adopts luxurious and simple design of layouts, fabrics and finishes, while the bathroom uses handsome materials beautifully detailed. All of these considered design elements make the difference.

"We are creating a place to live for the future, but we are doing it a traditional way, in a way that people will value and see the quality and effort that's gone into making their new home", said Michael Ingall, Chief Executive of Allied London.

He continued, "St. John's will be a unique way to live the Manchester experience. Imagine a place that stimulates the senses. A sanctuary, an oasis, a secure home in the city – the place that enlivens you. Light, aspect, serenity. Relax among a rich tapestry of alleyways and courtyards or choose to live in style, elevated over Manchester's captivating skyline."
