Fourteen luxurious apartments have been created within the upper floors of three adjoining historic buildings. Accommodation comprises 3 one-bedroom apartments, 10 two-bedroom apartments and a three-bedroom apartment. Every apartment has its own bespoke layout and charm, dictated by a desire to maximise space, light and to take advantage of the building’s unique period character and architecture. Stylish living spaces are adorned with original features, such as exposed roof beams and vaulted ceilings, original ‘nooks and crannies’ and shaped walls lovingly incorporated into the modern form along with stunning restored period windows.
The accommodation, however, is very much focused on the ‘today’ and provides an environment that complements a busy lifestyle.
Provided are sociable open plan kitchen/dining and living areas and spacious double bedrooms which are either en suite or next to a main bathroom. Some one bedroom apartments also offer a dedicated space for a study, accommodating today’s requirement for home working.
The Chambers comprises three buildings, Old Half Moon Chambers, Chapel Walks Chambers and Union Buildings. The interiors have been skilfully merged whilst retaining each individual and imposing period façade. As well as being interesting examples of early and late Victorian architecture, these buildings have stood the test of time and have adapted to suit the changing needs of their occupants; providing a base for every kind of trade, from silk merchant to post-punk clothing store.
The Great Pretender. Don’t let the convincing black and white Tudor façade fool you, Union Buildings was actually built in 1889 in the Tudor style as commercial offices. Just like it’s neighbours, the building integrates the shell of a much earlier structure. It was designed by prominent architects Butler & Ellis and was once three separate units, numbers 13,15 and 17. It’s believed that Manchester music legend and former guitarist and co-writer for The Smiths, Johnny Marr, once worked in a clothes shop in these buildings and that it was here, he met Joe Moss, the band’s manager, who used 13 Chapel Walks as a warehouse for his clothing brand, Crazy Face. The Smiths used to rehearse here before they landed a record deal and a few years ago, a very rare recording of one of those rehearsals emerged on line.
Tucked away on historic Chapel Walks, close to where it joins Cross Street, The Chambers sits within the Upper King Street Conservation Area and is surrounded by some of the finest examples of the city’s architecture, both old and new. From here you are a mere two minute walk from the Royal Exchange Theatre, three minutes from Selfridges and Harvey Nichols, five minutes from Manchester City Art Gallery, ten minutes from The Ivy at Spinningfields, and eleven minutes from Canal Street… need we go on? For work, MediacityUK is just 26 minutes away on a regular tram service, or you can head off to Altrincham, Bury and all the destinations in between from the Metro stations at Exchange Square or St Peter’s Square.
