Beautifully preserved from its 18th-century origins, the former Co-operative Printing Room is a true Manchester landmark.

A key part of the city’s history, this Grade II-listed building is now reborn as The Press. Comprising 66 New York-style apartments and townhouses, The Press blends thoughtful design and premium materials with a wealth of original features.

This spacious duplex apartment features two double bedrooms and two bathrooms, with a large study area and masses of original features throughout.

Situated in the vibrant heart of NOMA, this development offers unparalleled convenience, with many shops and public transport on your doorstep.


Before the Co-operative Printing Room opened its gates in 1863, poverty and illiteracy went hand-in-hand in Manchester – and both were uncontrolled. But the city’s first printing presses gave locals access to all manner of affordable reading material – including newspapers. Literacy levels skyrocketed. This was the beginning of the tuned-in, whip-smart Manchester that would shake the decades to come. The city that produced the Suffragettes, the world’s first computer, the UK’s biggest university and Factory Records.

The development was restored in 2020 and now beautifully converted into 66 apartments and townhouses.
