The Sky Gardens

The Sky Gardens marks the second phase of DeTrafford’s pioneering city centre development which successfully combines the convenience of contemporary inner city living with access to attractive outdoor living space.

Located at 210 Chester Road, on the doorstep of Manchester’s business district, The Sky Gardens sits next to the exciting Roof Gardens development which has won plaudits for its concept of incorporating private skyline retreats and tree-lined secluded courtyards at the heart of the city.

The Sky Gardens builds on this philosophy offering a further 154 homes, comprising penthouses, triplexes, duplexes and loft apartments – with private gardens and terraces for many of the 1,2 and 3 bedroom apartments.
This outdoor space is augmented by a tenth-floor communal roof garden supporting wildflower, barbecue and picnic areas. Back on the ground, a new public square will contribute to building a sense of community, while an attractive residents’ lounge, café, restaurant and bar will provide additional amenities for residents to meet, interact and enjoy.

Adjoining The Sky Gardens is Detrafford's nationally acclaimed The Roof Gardens that together will create a new innovative residential community at the doorstep of Manchester's business district.

The Roof Garden's combination of Apartments and 2, 3 & 4 Bedroom Townhouses will complement The Sky Gardens housing mix and create a sustainable and elective community of families, professional, retirees and first time buyers, all enjoying the new public square and its bars, restaurants and retail space.

Leisure Facilities

At the heart of the development is a new civic square, overlooked by cafés, restaurants and with ground floor commercial space off Chester Road, creating active street frontages. We are proposing to create a series of entrepreneurs’ studios for start-ups and small businesses encouraging a creative community central to the project.


Central to the philosophy of The Sky Gardens is to create a model of sustainable living, embraced through the 10th floor shared roof venue and the public square that together with the abundance of communal space provide pleasant focal points for families and individuals to meet, interact and enjoy a very sense of community.
