CERT’s Collyhurst apartments underway

The developer’s Peelers Yard scheme in Manchester kicked off last week. The 90-home Osborne Yard is now also on site.

Heatley Developments has been appointed to build CERT’s Osborne Yard, which features 85 apartments and five townhouses.

The five-storey development, designed by Elevate Architects and in the pipeline since 2020, is located within the £5bn Victoria North masterplan.

Site clearance work commenced in Q3 2023, including demolition of the former decommissioned fuel station, and removal of the below-ground fuel tanks.

The scheme is CERT’s second in Collyhurst. The developer completed the 28-apartment POPworks scheme in 2019.

Howard Lord, CERT managing director, said: “Osborne Yard has been designed with apartments that are larger than average for the city centre, with flexible layouts incorporating home working zones, and on-site amenities, yet are priced competitively compared to other new projects in Ancoats, despite being just five minutes walk. This appeal has been realised with over 50% of the development sold within two months.”

He added: “2024 is off to a strong start for us with two of our schemes, Osborne Yard, and our joint-venture in New Cross, Peelers Yard, with Myprotein founder Oliver Cookson, starting on site after a few years of hard work to get them to this point. It’s rewarding to see work start in earnest on both schemes.”

In addition to Osborne Yard and Peelers Yard, CERT has two further schemes under construction in the city region, including SONA, a BTR project opposite the Apollo in Ardwick, set to complete early summer and Royal Canal Works in Stretford.
