One Manchester


Drees & Sommer understand that working on community based residential projects provides an opportunity to really make a difference to the lives of residents. On all our developments for One Manchester we seek to implement low carbon technologies, through engagement with each community. This can be through highlighting fuel-poverty, reducing pollution, or aligning climate goals with neighbourhood goals.

Hulme Living was One Manchester’s first new build scheme since the organisation formed. All revenues earned from the new homes will be reinvested back into community development programmes – including future housebuilding – to help improve lives and the wellbeing of people living in One Manchester’s communities.

We provided a project management led multidisciplinary service to support the development of the Royce Road and Leaf Street sites. The £20m development provides 103 two/three bedroom apartments on Leaf Street and 65 two/three bedroom apartments on Royce Road.


A measure of the success of a project is the feedback from local residents, an important aspect of which is engagement and consultation, enabling them to influence and shape new developments, which will ultimately impact positively their quality and standard of living, lowering fuel bills in the process through a number of sustainable initiatives.

We have since been engaged by One Manchester to deliver similar schemes at the Clockworks on Princess Road (105 units) and Gorton Lane, Manchester (109 units).
