Welcome to One Vesta Street, a new collection of tranquil waterside homes designed by world-renowned Rafael Viñoly Architects and set in the heart of vibrant Ancoats and New Islington on the eastern edge of Manchester city centre

What’s in a name?

In ancient Rome, Vesta was the goddess of hearth, home and family.

Vesta Street itself was also the site of a mid 19th Century iron foundry that was occupied by the eminent engineer Willian Fairbairn, one of the pioneers who made Manchester the beating heart of the industrial age. This unique heritage coupled with the waterside location informed the design, layouts and finishes of One Vesta Street’s homes, with construction to industry-leading standards by the award-winning Eric Wright Group.

One Vesta Street’s 169 apartments and three townhouses benefit from a 24/7 concierge, residents’ clubroom, outdoor amenity space, secure cycle storage and an option to purchase a space in gated car parking.

The culture, shops, bars and restaurants set amongst the historic mills of Ancoats are less than five minutes’ walk along the New Islington Marina footpaths, with the Northern Quarter right across Great Ancoats Street.

Set on New Islington Marina with water on two sides of the development, the layout of One Vesta Street makes the most of its waterside location and the sun’s path throughout the day.

The sun rises on the North East marina-side elevation, tracking around to the South where the townhouses are located alongside the Ashton Canal. Homes on South West elevation catch the afternoon and evening light, with higher floors seeing the sunset over the city centre skyline.

Eleven different apartment layouts have been created to make the most of space, natural environment, and provide a range of options for purchasers ranging from one-bed homes to three-bed duplexes.
Eight ground floor apartments offer water-level terraces, while eight duplex apartments on the top floor incorporate South-West facing terraces with views over the city and beyond.

Every home has been designed to create a spacious and airy feel. High ceilings, plenty of built-in storage, calm colours and the warmth of the wooden flooring combine to create unique and peaceful homes.
