London Road Fire Station is a grade II-listed building which has been closed since the mid-1980s. It’s positioned at the gateway to Manchester, opposite Piccadilly Station, so it’s the first and the last building seen when you arrive or depart by train. It is simply one of the most significant projects in Manchester.
Now owned by developer Allied London, London Road is creating an exciting and important new destination in Manchester that is set to redefine a new doorway to the city.
“London Road Fire Station needs little introduction. A local and national stalwart, it has greeted residents and visitors to Manchester for over a hundred years. In its infancy London Road evoked the very best in design principles and architectural philosophy, with the best in the business competing to design it in 1899. It remains unchallenged over a century later.”
Michael Ingall, Chief Executive, Allied London
