Kingsway Business Park is an innovation and logistics hub, conceived in response to Greater Manchester’s growing business needs. The 420 acre site strategically located on the M62 sits amongst breathtaking natural surroundings with 70 acres of parkland and nature integrated into the site.

Working collectively, DLA Architecture have been involved with the evolving Kingsway scheme for over 20 years, developing the masterplan and more recently co-ordinating the planning and implementation of the infrastructure works and successfully delivering the units to meet tenant demands.

Set against the backdrop of the Pennines, the Business Park has been developed with the intention of protecting and extending areas of wildlife habitat and conserving and enhancing biodiversity, including the planting of 11,000 trees to create new woodlands and picturesque cycle routes and walkways.

The Kingsway Business Park concept uses a number of urban design principles to unite the unique design of individual units in a strong, cohesive development.
