14-16 Charlotte Street, Manchester
14-16 Charlotte Street, Manchester
Former warehouse, built c1856-58, with stone ground floor with a tall arcade, alternating pediments to second-floor windows, and a line of chimneys. The two at the corner are disposed in such a way as to mirror the splayed corner below. Grade II listed.
One of a fine series of mid-C19th former warehouses on the south side of the street, built between c1850-65 to the designs of Edward Walters "in his personal and highly influential interpretation of the palazzo style" (Pevsner). Almost all occupy a whole block (to allow access to loading bays at the side), are of fine brick with stone dressings, and of five storeys and basement. "What matters in all is the conscientious and discriminating decoration, the amount of which depended on the purse of the client."
