Muse has hired Kate Howe as a senior development surveyor to oversee the delivery of the company’s projects at Islington Wharf and Chester.
Howe, who was most recently running her own property developer and consultancy Cadence Property, joined Muse this month, and along with working on Islington Wharf and City Place in Chester, will also assist on the developer’s emerging £1bn masterplan in Wirral.
She spent three years at Scarborough Group between 2014 and 2017, and has also previously worked at Praxis Real Estate Management.
Howe will be based out of Muse’s Manchester office in Salford Quays.
Muse is currently delivering the third phase of Islington Wharf Locks in Manchester with contractor Eric Wright. The project in Ancoats is set to deliver a mix of apartments, town houses and mews homes.
At City Place, Muse is aiming to complete the £120m project by 2020, and has already delivered 70,000 sq ft of office space. This first office, One City Place, was sold by Muse to Hermes Investment Management for around £18m last year.
Phil Mayall, regional director at Muse, said: “I am delighted to welcome Kate to the North West team, where she will add her considerable experience to our growing portfolio of schemes.”
