NOMA Plans Sports Pitches
NOMA, the £800m scheme to redevelop 20-acres of Manchester city centre, is seeking to develop sports pitches in the centre of the development on space currently used for car parking.
Two sports pitches on planned on land used for car parking of Miller Street have been unveiled by NOMA.
They are set to be the first of their kind in the city centre.
A spokesperson for NOMA said: "As NOMA develops we will continue to explore opportunities to create amenities which will benefit residents and workers alike. In this case two recreational sports facilities on land to the right of the CIS tower on Miller Street.
"This is a great new facility in Manchester city centre that reduces the need for a lot of people working and living here to drive significant distances to access sports facilities.
"This project will also benefit local schools, as our partners in the development – Activate – have a long history of engaging with education providers to provide health and well-being advice.
"The sports facilities are part of NOMA’s place making strategy, and are an intermediate use of the land designed to create character and drive footfall. Over time this area will eventually be given over to office use."
The NOMA scheme includes The Co-operative Group's new headquarters at One Angel Square
