CERT Property submits plans for, “Osborne Yard” , a 90 apartment development

The Manchester-based developer has submitted plans for 90 apartments, which will be known as Osborne Yard on Oldham Road, Collyhurst and next door to the late Royal Osborne Theatre, which was demolished in 2010 and formerly home to acid house club The Thunderdome. 

The development will be CERT Property’s second scheme on Oldham Road following the scheme POPworks which was completed in 2019 and is being delivered in partnership with Heatley Developments.


Howard Lord, Managing Director of CERT property, said: “The area between Collyhurst and Manchester City centre is entering a transformative period with significant  investment and regeneration underway as part of the “Northern Gateway”.  Osborne Yard aims to be a leading residential offer in the area  and we have done our utmost to be respectful of the historical context  and the surrounding neighbourhood. We want the development to be a landmark of “what’s next, starts here” for the surrounding area.” 

The development boast plans for a combination of generous outdoor space, bold interiors and innovative carbon reduction technology. Osborne Yard aims to set a new standard for residential development within the Northern Gateway, acting as a catalyst for future development along Oldham Road.


Osborne Yard offers thoughtfully crafted boutique residences that connect nature and the city, with easy access to Ancoats and Northern Quarter neighbourhoods.

The scheme has been designed to be a contemporary, design-led urban home, influenced by the heritage of the local theatre. Featuring creative twists across 90 apartments, with additional residents’ lounge, communal garden, bike storage and car parking all within the heart of Manchester’s Northern Gateway District – making the scheme ideal for young professionals and families alike.
