The summer of 2012 saw Hydes close the historic Queen’s Brewery after deciding to move to new premises, leaving behind a building that was at the forefront of its illustrious history. Now, a new chapter is to be opened with plans to convert the brewery into lavish, inimitable, self-contained apartments that will stand out from other developments in the area.

The last barrel was rolled out in late 2012 and the building at the centre of Hyde’s history would brew no more. However, despite the fact the brewery is being turned into residential apartments, its historical character is set to remain. As a condition of its Grade II listed status, stunning features such as the romantic clock tower and the oak brewing vessel will remain as features of the building. In addition, the eye-catching exterior will be restored to its original condition, making it a truly extraordinary property in the area.

The original Queens Brewery building, which dates back to the 19th century, has Grade II listed status. The landmark building is undergoing extensive refurbishment by Forshaw Land & Property Group Ltd. and, when completed, will boast 73 luxurious apartments consisting of mainly one and two bed accommodation, with a small number of studios. The central courtyard is to be landscaped, leaving car parking to remain in its current position outside of the site. The epitome of luxury, original period features will be kept throughout and residents will have the choice of duplex apartments with private balconies, en-suite rooms and private dressing rooms.

A unique feature of the development is that within the existing structure of the building, no apartment will look the same – a host of different shapes and sizes will be available to choose from; some loft style, others will be standard apartments and others boasting huge feature windows. In addition to the original building, new construction will provide three storeys of additional accommodation. It is planned that the architectural language of this will be contemporary, to create a clear contrast with the original parts of the site, which will also add another element of uniqueness to the development.

With the focus of the refurbishment quite clearly on restoring the character of the building, it’s clear that this isn’t going to be just another block of flats.

Phase 1 construction is due to begin in May 2014 and will consist of the first half of the courtyard on either side. Phase 1 is anticipated to be completed by Q3 2015.
