The regeneration of Smithfield helped to shape Manchester's vibrant, cultural Northern Quarter.

Smithfield is an innovative £120 million programme of regeneration in Manchester’s trendy Northern Quarter. We blended the city’s heritage and its aspirations for the future, helping to transform the Northern Quarter into one of Manchester’s most sought-after neighbourhoods.
Built on partnership
The area has been delivered in partnership with Manchester City Council, and has created more than 350 apartments, Crowne Plaza and Holiday Inn Express hotels and over 30,000 sq ft of workspace accommodating 12 new businesses. It has been a catalyst in the renaissance of this vibrant cultural and creative quarter for Manchester.
Resurrecting an icon
The jewel in the crown of the scheme is the Grade II-listed Mackie Mayor building – the former Smithfield fish market that was refurbished and transformed, bringing nine independent kitchens and bars with seating for over 400 people.
