Murrays’ Mills is a beautiful collection of Grade II and II* listed buildings forming a horseshoe around the landscaped courtyard garden.

The Murray brothers began construction in 1797, starting with Old then Decker Mills. New Mill followed quickly, and the mills were then connected by linking wings. All but one wing remains, as do the engine houses and the chimney.

Manchester Life’s focus has always been on sympathetically revitalising this irreplaceable heritage site and setting it up for a brand new purpose. From the soaring 7-storey Old Mill, to the head-turning façade of the Murray Street Block, the entire site is being painstakingly restored and engineered to return the mill complex to its former glory while delivering cutting edge standards of new build development.

This makes it one of the most exciting residential developments to hit modern Manchester.
