Maryland looks to offload Brunswick Mill 

Arrowsmith Investments is close to agreeing a deal to acquire the Manchester site, which has planning permission for a 277-home residential development, Place North West understands.

Maryland Securities, which has sold sites to Capital & Centric, One Heritage and Vita Group in recent months and years, is in talks with Arrowsmith about a deal for the Bradford Road site. 

Arrowsmith is the firm behind the controversial Apex Tower proposals in Manchester, a scheme located next to the much-loved Britons Protection pub. 

Apex Tower is currently in for planning and the developer is now nearing completion on a deal to acquire Brunswick Mill, according to market sources. 

Maryland won planning consent for a £58m redevelopment of the mill last September. 

Designed by Hodder + Partners, the project would see the historic mill and its surrounding area redeveloped into 277 homes with 20,000 sq ft of commercial space.   

The existing mill buildings would house 150 apartments, while four- and seven-storey new-build elements would provide the remaining homes.  

The new-build element would feature townhouses and a small amount of commercial space to animate the corner of Beswick Street.  A public path through the site connecting Bradford Road with the Ashton Canal towpath is also proposed.
