Manchester locals are watching the concrete being laid and the granite ledges arrive this week on a long-awaited new extension to the Projekts Skatepark.
Freestyle Skateparks worked closely with the Projekts MCR team, (particularly John Haines and Vic) to design a quirky, but not awkward to use, skatepark design. This was the result of difficult existing site levels and other restrictions that got in their way throughout the process.
The new build is Plaza-esque with plenty of transitions that flow through the 820m2 space, including a long, grading mini from kerb height to a few feet high. Ledges, including granite ones are varied in shapes, lines and style. A new cabin and floodlighting are also being prepped so look forward to work completed and open to the public early 2013.
