Common & Co join the Kampus community

Posted on: April 1st, 2021 by kampusEditor

We are all about the independents – and the best indie cafes, bars, restaurants and shops from Manchester and the North.

The newest members of the Kampus community tick all the independent boxes: Cornerstone and Nell’s Pizza. Brought to Kampus by Common & Co (the people behind Common, Port Street, Nell’s and The Beagle), we will soon have two new places to eat and drink. Cornerstone, a traditional boozer reimagined for the 21st century, and Nell’s, whose legendary 22” New York-style pizzas have kept us fed and amused all through lockdown(s).

Common & Co was founded by Jonny and Charlotte Heyes, who have run the Northern Quarter’s Common for the last 15 years. They’re the first operator to join our community. “Kampus represents a development with a sense of purpose, it kind of knows what it’s about, what it’s for,” said Jonny. “Lots of developments end up being a bunch of buildings searching for a reason to be, furiously post-rationalising. We got the impression that the vision for Kampus would be something we, as an independent operator, could get on board with.

It will be a thoughtfully curated selection of independent businesses as part of a neighbourhood ecosystem, which is nice. All it was lacking was a pub (and a pizza shop).”

“Common were one of the first bars in the Northern Quarter and have become a Manchester institution,” said Adam Higgins, co-founder of Capital & Centric. “They’re going to be setting the tone for what we’re creating at Kampus: independent, laid back and for everyone. And the timing couldn’t be better as people start coming back into the city and life gets back to normal.”

The canal-side, garden-facing pub and pizza shop will open at Kampus in July – we’ll see you at the bar.

Kampus Open House: view apartments for rent

Posted on: March 31st, 2021 by kampusEditor

Well, hello there. Our very first Open House weekend is coming up – when we’re open early, late and all through the weekend so that you can see for yourself what Kampus living is all about.

Come visit us between Friday 9 and Sunday 11 April and we’ll do more than just show you round our (very beautiful) 1 and 2 bedroom Manchester apartments for rent. You’ll also get pizza in the garden (did we mention the garden?), get insider information on which independent cafes, pubs, restaurants and shops are joining the Kampus community, drink proper drinks on the terrace (overlooking the city, laid out so prettily below), and get to know everything that renting at Kampus gives you (hint: there may be mention of a private cinema…).

AND anyone who signs up during our Open House weekend can get up to £1,500 rent free. So if the garden, drinks, pizza and frankly fabulous community we’re building doesn’t do it for you, perhaps this massive money-saving offer will?

Limited availability. Offer applies to the weekend of 9-11 April only. Book a viewing now.
