Mayfield is about to be reborn. Innovation, audacity and imagination are in the air, as energy, ideas and life return to this part of Manchester city centre. U+I are taking their first steps to opening up this forgotten 24-acre site to a new generation of Mancunians.

This decade of extraordinary change started in the summer of 2017, when award-winning architects transformed part of the Mayfield site into the temporary home of GRUB – the city’s best independent street food event. You’ll also find a tranquil garden and flexible community spaces. So whether you want to grab a beer, have food with friends, get a community group together or find a moment’s peace and quiet, Mayfield is here for you.

Join us on Thursday 16 August for a special summer tour of the Mayfield development and hear about the project from U+I Development Director, James Heather, with a focus on the future place-making plans for the site. Journalist and Tour Guide, Jonathan Schofield, will be setting the scene for the event with an overview of the former print work’s and 5 platform train station’s history. Jonathan will be leading tours of the venue and food and drinks will be provided by GRUB.
