A stunning new rooftop bar with yoga space and outdoor cinema is coming to Castlefield

This contemporary new development in Castlefield will feature a 'one-of-a-kind rooftop garden' with wine bar, yoga space and exclusive outdoor cinema

High end property developers DeTrafford are constructing a flagship development in Castlefield called St George’s Gardens.

Named after St George’s Church, the development aims to build its own community from the ground up and features facilities from a rooftop yoga garden to a wine bar with great views across the city centre.

St George’s Gardens consists of luxurious one- and two-bedroom apartments to buy or rent and is being constructed with top quality materials by DeTrafford’s own in-house construction team.

DeTrafford was founded founded in 2008 by a Manchester man named Gary Jackson. Gary originally began his property development efforts with a Victorian house which he purchased with the proceeds of his door-to-door potato round. He successfully developed said house into six apartments and sold them on, going on to develop over 800 more properties across his career.

DeTrafford has a promising portfolio of upcoming developments across Manchester, including St George’s Gardens.

Commenting on the upcoming rooftop garden, DeTrafford’s design team were enthusiastic about sharing their vision with the public: “Situated at one of the best vantage points in City Centre Manchester, overlooking the historical grounds of St Georges church, the new St Georges Gardens rooftop is a prime location for morning yoga at sunrise, a mid-day picnic with friends and exclusive outdoor cinema showings by dusk.”

“Inspired by Manchester’s industrial heritage and surrounding sites of the Castlefield area, the materials chosen are rich in colour and texture with the use of corten, granite and timber leading from the sophisticated mid-century inspired interiors.”

“The landscaping between the lawned grass and relaxed seating is a combination of lush greenery and low maintenance shrubs surrounded by pockets of private lounging and a central rooftop bar, softly lit by ambient lighting make it a perfect destination spot this summer.”

The 360 visualisation of the rooftop design is now available to view online, with the full development to launch in June 2020.
