Hong Kong developer chosen for Angel Meadow

Manchester Place and The Co-op have appointed Far East Consortium International to develop more than 600 homes as part of the NOMA neighbourhood.

Totalling 2.37 acres across four sites at Angel Meadow park, the new homes will be for both sale and rent and will include “a landmark tower”.

FEC is a Hong Kong-based international property development company which has delivered projects in Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia and Singapore as well as mainland China and Hong Kong.

The Angel Meadow agreement was confirmed with a visit to Manchester by FEC managing director Chris Hoong, who met Manchester City Council leader, Sir Richard Leese, Manchester Place chief executive Paul Beardmore and David Pringle, director of NOMA at the Co-op.

Hoong said: “This is one of the most exciting residential opportunities not just in Manchester but in the UK right now and we are very proud and excited to be working with NOMA and the city council.

“We have assembled a team with the skills to deliver a new neighbourhood of international caliber and we would like this to be the start of a long relationship with the city.”

“We have the knowledge and expertise to develop and deliver multi-billion mixed use landmark schemes and we believe Angel Meadow will be another successful addition to our international portfolio.”

David Pringle, director of NOMA at The Co-op, said: “This is a great step forward for the second phase of residential development at NOMA. The Angel Meadow sites have the potential to redefine city centre living with the added benefit of being situated around a reinvigorated green park.

“With Moda Living’s Angel Gardens scheme also on site this year, NOMA will be providing an outstanding residential offer that supports our plans already underway to create a truly mixed use neighbourhood.”

How ugly are these? For god sake, yet another poorly designed building in Manchester.

You are wrong Tom

By Rhod

What’s wrong with it? This is far from “poorly designed”. Too many people’s comfort zone is cynicism and negativity as a substitute for thinking properly about stuff – it’s rank laziness.

By Specsaver

Good to see tall buildings lining a park / green space, it’s a real balanced city image, what could have been for Pomona and elsewhere.

This seems a strange one to attack Tom. It shows a lot more promise than the many anonymous looking stuff proposed / going up around the south side of the city.

* omits “many”

If you squint you could be at Central park.It isn’t too bad.A bit quirky which is a nice change.Pomona was a wasted opportunity to create a terrific little community. Or whatever silly name it now has.

By Elephant

This looks cr*p, but then you look at the awfulity next to it that already exists, and it suddenly looks less bad.

Manchester city centre ain’t about good design!
