Circle Square, the £750m development taking shape on the former BBC site on Manchester’s Oxford Road, is going to have a serious impact on the city over the next few years – and Place North West can share with you exclusive drone footage of work in progress.
The footage shows how the first element, phase 1A, is coming together. This phase, comprising 604 Vita Student apartments housing 744 students, will be completed in summer 2017.
Ana Vieitez, marketing manager for Circle Square, said: “There is no blueprint for Circle Square; we are creating a vibrant, collaborative and connected place that will bring together forward-thinking people and progressive businesses.
“Works are moving forward with great momentum and it’s very exciting to see phase 1A taking shape. We look forward to welcoming our Vita Student residents, who are set to arrive in the accommodation next year”.
Bruntwood and Select Property Group are the development partners in Circle Square. In September, a revised planning application was submitted for a 430,000 sq ft block comprising a 150-bedroom hotel, a 1,100-space car park and a heating and power centre.
