Capital & Centric has released new CGIs of its Crusader Mill development, ahead of the first tranche of apartments being put on sale this Saturday.
Last month the developer committed to giving local owner-occupiers the first opportunity to buy a flat in the scheme, due to the prevalence of international investors in the Manchester market currently. The open-invitation launch takes place on 15 July.
Capital & Centric has conducted its own research, in which it found that 94% of the 500 Manchester residents surveyed believed that locals should get first refusal to buy residential properties, with 83% agreeing that too many homes had been sold to investors who wouldn’t live in them.
The developer acquired the 200,000 sq ft cluster of mill and warehouse buildings on Fair Street, Chapeltown Street, Congou Street and Baird Street off-market in late 2015. In summer 2016 it secured planning permission for a scheme designed by Shedkm, that includes 201 apartments, with 126 apartments in the existing mill and a further 75 apartments in a new 10-storey building.
Some of the mill buildings are linked, forming a central courtyard, which will be landscaped as part of the scheme. Exterior Architecture is advising.
Crusader apartments will be priced from £165,000.
