Through the lens of the recently approved £450 million Upper Brooks Street life sciences campus, this session explores Manchester’s thoughtful, and highly successful, approach to curating development across the city through strategic regeneration frameworks.

These frameworks provide the foundations to create visionary district wide masterplans which bring together multiple development partners and their architects, to deliver the spaces the city needs to grow over the next 10 -15 years.
