Oldham Council is set to name Bellway Homes as preferred development partner to redevelop the 13-acre Lancaster Club site into a 140-unit 'garden suburb'.
Councillors will be asked to approve the developer's appointment at a cabinet meeting next Monday 30 March.
If approved the construction of new homes is set to start on site early next year. The development will comprise 142 homes, 108 detached, a mixture of two-, three- and four-bedroom designs.
Bellway Homes would also convert the grade 2-listed former Lancaster Club building into apartments.
To prepare the site for development the council relocated the site's allotments and football pitches. A Goals! Soccer Centre will be built on the former allotment site.
Work is already underway to relocate the allotments and this is due to be completed in May.
Pozzoni advised the council.
