St Thomas’ Gardens is a £25m multigenerational residential and care scheme forming part of The Royal George Quarter, Stockport, and is a key site in the Strategic Regeneration Framework of Town Centre West.

The scheme will deliver 67 affordable new homes including 54 apartments within new and existing buildings, as well as 13-new-build townhouses on the site; predominantly 1, 2 and 3-bed properties, with two 5-bed multi-generational houses also proposed. The main Grade II-listed workhouse and infirmary buildings will be sympathetically converted and restored, giving these empty buildings a new purpose and sustainable future.

The Academy of Living Well is a 70-bed intermediate care facility supporting transitional care needs including; step up / step down, discharge to assess, rehabilitation and respite alongside dementia care in the very heart of Stockport town centre.

The new build houses are designed to Passivhaus and HAPPI design principles, and the Academy of Living Well designed to BREEAM Excellent standards. High-quality public realm forming a series of interlinked communal spaces will create a welcoming and biodiverse environment that responds to the historical context of the former hospital site.
