curating a neighbourhood,

If Manchester was the world’s first modern city then NOMA is the place where it all began…
The place where entrepreneur Richard Arkwright built Shudehill Mill and cemented Manchester’s future as an industrial powerhouse, and where The Co-op grew on the founding principles of democracy, education and co-operation.

In embracing the area’s past, NOMA is inspiring its future, creating a new 20 acre neighbourhood where you can live, work, create and innovate.
NOMA combines the enterprising vision of the industrialists and the spirit of community, opportunity and fairness.

We are committed to creating an innovative, commercially-driven and responsibly-designed neighbourhood that offers outstanding connectivity, embraces its rich heritage and keeps people and community firmly at its heart. The 20-acre masterplan is creating new homes, offices, hotels, shops, restaurants and bars around vibrant urban spaces and public realm. This is underpinned by a forward-thinking, neighbourhood-led approach to placemaking that champions the idea that places are better when people are involved in making them.
