UK: Developer announces plans for Northern Quarter Victorian Mill in Manchester

UK: Developer announces plans for Northern Quarter Victorian Mill in Manchester | Industrial Heritage | Scoop.it

It is one of Manchester’s last unconverted mills which, upon completion, will offer traditional, canalside apartments; some of them the biggest in the city with lateral lofts of up to 4,000 sq ft of space taking up entire floorplates.

Oh the irony! "one of Manchester’s last unconverted mills ... will offer traditional, canalside apartments". 
Just read that again "traditional, canalside apartments".
