The Astley Bardsley

Bardsley nears completion on Great Ancoats Street

Contractor Bardsley and developer Mulbury are set to complete The Astley, M&G’s first private-rented project in the North West, in the coming weeks, handing over 135 apartments on Great Ancoats Street in Manchester.

The scheme, which is also Mulbury’s first private-rented scheme in Manchester, was named The Astley after the pub that formerly stood on the site.

The brick-clad building, designed by Tim Groom Architects, is split between eight and 15 storeys, and features 135 apartments, 6,000 sq ft of commercial space at ground floor level, and a rooftop garden. M&G is the funder and will manage both the apartments and the development’s retail units.

The professional team also includes Cidon as concrete frame contractor; Rider Levett Bucknall as quantity surveyor; Deloitte as planner; and Scott Hughes Design as structural and civil engineer.

Bardsley has also started on site at MeadowSide for developer FEC, where it is delivering the 12-storey Mount Yard, which includes 136 one, two, and three-bed apartments. This building forms the first phase of a wider £200m development.

Other Bardsley projects currently on site include Mulbury’s second private rented development in the city, a £30m project on the corner of Blossom Street and Great Ancoats Street.

Also designed by Tim Groom Architects, the Blossom Street scheme is due to complete in May 2019.
