New Homes at NOMA
It has always been part of the plans for NOMA to include new housing alongside the offices, shops, restaurants and public spaces.
Manchester city centre needs new homes if it is to continue to grow and prosper. NOMA has the space to provide these homes. New residents will play a key role in bringing NOMA to life and contributing to the local community.
This section of the Engage website provides information about residential developments in two different locations at NOMA:
- The Angel Meadow residential development will provide new homes across four different sites around Angel Meadow Park
- The Angel Gardens development will be located in between Miller Street, Angel Street and Rochdale Road.
New Homes at Angel Meadow
The Co-op, working with Manchester Place, have identified four different sites around Angel Meadow Park. Together, these will be known as Angel Meadow Residential and will be the location for new homes at NOMA.
Manchester Place is a partnership between local and national government formed to identify priority areas for housing.
Angel Meadow has long been identified for new homes. The excellent proximity to the city centre and nearby tram, bus and cycle network makes the location ideal for a sustainable new neighbourhood.
Far East Consortium International Ltd (FEC) has been appointed as developers for the Angel Meadow Residential project. As development partner for the project, FEC shares the same aspirations as the NOMA team – to create housing of the highest quality in this prestigious park-side location.
A public consultation on FEC’s proposals was held in March / April 2017. Following this, a planning application was submitted in May 2017.
In August 2017, planning permission was granted for the proposed residential development at Angel Meadow.

The Angel Gardens development, located in between Miller Street, Angel Street and Rochdale Road, is being brought forward by Moda Living and Apache Capital Partners. The development received planning permission in 2015 and construction is due to get underway in 2016.
Angel Gardens will include 458 apartments for the private rental market; communal areas such as lounges and roof gardens; as well as shops, restaurants, cafés and bars; all arranged around a central semi-private garden.
It will be a place that is vibrant and safe, with a mix of uses, high quality public spaces and a long-term approach to its management.
The development has been designed with a variety of building heights to respond to its surroundings, and in particular, to the scale of existing buildings on Angel Street. Parts of Angel Gardens will be 6 to 8 storeys with a 34 storey tower located at the prominent junction of Miller Street and Rochdale Road.
The development will be an attractive addition to the Manchester skyline and will revitalise a currently underused plot in the city. The proposals are integrated with the surrounding walking and cycling connections, helping to achieve strong links with Angel Meadow, the residential areas to the north of the NOMA site and the city centre.
The landscape proposals for Angel Gardens form an integral part of the wider NOMA Masterplan which includes Angel Square, Sadler’s Yard and complements the valued green space at Angel Meadow Park.
Groups of trees will soften the building’s lines and provide protection from wind and weather.
The central, semi-private garden space will add real value to the development with a unique, contemporary design that is interwoven with the building fabric. Ground floor restaurants and cafés will provide outsides terraces for dining.
