    Mansion House apartments get a traditional topping out

    09 April 2020
    A 3 minute read by Toby Brown

    Recently we reignited the ancient tradition of ‘topping out’ and held a traditional tree topping out ceremony on the top of the Mansion House apartments at New Islington in celebration of the completion of the main structure. The ceremony encompassed the age-old tradition of placing a tree on the building and toasting the success with a beer – a nod towards the Netherlands and Flanders builders of old who received beer from the building’s owner upon completion.

    These awesome new homes are being created using super-sustainable cross-laminated timber – with every panel stamped with its own special passport number. They bring a whole new aesthetic to Manchester and, as with all our House by Urban Splash homes, they’ve been created offsite using panels created in a factory in Bilbao.

    Topping out at Mansion House

    Our construction team at Artez have been assembling the materials to create the first Mansion House structures overlooking the water at New Islington – and as you can see they’re looking great!

    The homes will be ready in Spring 2021, each of them offering dual-aspect views over New Islington’s Marina and park; they’re set in the centre of the neighbourhood (somewhere I Love MCR recently called ‘the best place to live’) meaning that the OFSTED Outstanding New Islington Free School, award winning Pollen Bakery, Ancoats and Metrolink are all just a short walk away. And they're now pet friendly too.
