Bruntwood hunts developer for first tranche of Stretford Mall homes

JLL has been instructed to sell a 2.4-acre plot within the masterplan that could be redeveloped into 220 homes. 

Bruntwood and Trafford Council, the joint venture delivering the 140,000 sq ft Stretford Mall revamp, have put plot 1D – located to the south of the mall fronting Chester Road – on the market. 

In total, the redevelopment of Stretford Mall could see 800 homes delivered across the entire 27-acre site. 

The site that JLL is marketing for the JV is the first residential phase to come forward. 

“This is an unrivalled opportunity to deliver high-quality residential accommodation within an already well-established and well-connected south Manchester suburb,” said Alex Isles, associate in JLL’s land and development division. 

“We expect interest to be strong and look forward to marketing this exciting development site.” 

Other elements of the Stretford Mall masterplan include: 

  • Up to 140,000 sq ft of commercial space   
  • Up to 30,000 sq ft of space that could be used as drinking establishments takeaways, theatres, cinemas, and cafes   
  • Up to 7,750 sq ft for learning and non-learning institutions    
  • Up to 25,800 sq ft for local community use.    

The scheme, designed by Feilden Clegg Bradley, will benefit from almost £18m of Future High Streets funding. 

Bruntwood has launched a £12m contractor search for the first phase of the Stretford Mall scheme.

Chris Roberts, chief development officer at Bruntwood, said: “Bruntwood is committed to revitalising our region’s town centres through long-term consultation-led partnerships. 

“Through our joint venture with Trafford Council, we’re transforming Stretford for the long-term so it’s essential that we find the development partner that matches our sustainable, community-focussed ambitions for these transformations.” 

Elsewhere in Trafford, Bruntwood is working with the council to bring forward Lumina Village, the mixed-use redevelopment of the former Kellogg’s site off Talbot Road. 

Last year, the JV selected developer Glenbrook to deliver the residential element, comprising 440 build-to-rent homes and 195 for sale.
