    The Silk Works, Invicta House Submission

    NJL has submitted a full planning application for the redevelopment of existing offices in Manchester City Centre to provide 50,000 sq ft of new office accommodation. On behalf of our clients Henry Boot Developments Ltd and Invicta Manchester Ltd, the proposed development branded The Silk Works will provide much needed new office floorspace across 8 storeys incorporating the existing Invicta House Victorian façades on Atkinson Street and Scott Place. The ground floor will provide the opportunity for a coffee shop or kiosk to be established, alongside amenity space for occupiers.

    Invicta House is a Victorian building with local heritage significance located within the Deansgate/ Peter Street Conservation Area.  As such, the project has been a complex heritage case that has been subject to close liaison and consultation between NJL, Northmill Associates, Historic England and Manchester City Council.  The scheme has been revised and tailored throughout the pre-application period to reflect comments received from key stakeholders.  From this NJL has developed a positive working relationship with the Council, Historic England and the project team.
