Contractor picked for 1,000-bed Manchester PBSA

HG Construction will make its debut in the city with a 37-storey tower on Medlock Street for Greystar.

Hertfordshire-based HG has been appointed to construct the 1,014-bed Manchester student scheme, which will be operated by Greystar-owned Student Roost.

Adam Quinn, chief executive of HG Construction, said: “This is an exciting scheme that will make a significant contribution to the transformation of this area and help to meet the high and growing demand for first-class student accommodation in the Manchester area.

“With solid expertise in delivering high-quality PBSA projects across the UK, we are delighted to partner with Greystar on this landmark Manchester scheme.”

HG’s other PBSA schemes include a £75m development in Bristol for Studio Hive, and a £39m project for Manner in Leeds.

On Medlock Street, the contractor’s first North West project, the firm will deliver 13,000 sq ft of amenity space on the ground, first, eleventh, and thirty-seventh floors, as well as the bedrooms.

Greystar acquired the scheme from Whitbread earlier this month. Work is expected to complete in 2028.

Just starting to do the math here in terms of beds, at what point do MCC want to slow this sector down again.

Nobody needs or uses cars anymore. So there is no need for car parking.

Well international students certainly don’t

I loved the previous design but in true Manchester fashion they simplified it so it’s just another bland and cheap looking tower.
