GVA appointed to Fish Dock scheme

Regeneration specialist Muse has appointed GVA to handle its 'Fish Dock' development at Victoria Station in Manchester.

It is developing the site on Corporation Street with landowner Network Rail.

The scheme, which complements a £26m revamp of the station, will have 500,000 sq ft of offices.

Simon Reynolds, senior director at GVA, said: "We're thrilled with our appointment. The scheme is a major new gateway into the city and to the Co-op NOMA scheme.

"Victoria is set to become one of the most significant locations in the North following its designation as the core of the £580m Northern Hub."

Mike Horner, a director at Salford-based Muse, said: "We welcome GVA to our team as we develop our plans for this hugely important site and the planning application later this year."

GVA will be Muse's leasing and investment adviser.

Fish Dock ? is this a tribute to the former fish market, Fleetwood or researchers at Frasier TV sit com erroneously green lighting Daphne’s line to Niles about some family memory down at the Manchester fish docks. We had a huge docks as some will know but the cargoes never included fresh fish. Due in part to the six or seven hour journey from the mersey estuary to port. I would be genuinely interested to understand the reason for the choice of name.

Maybe they’re fishing for compliments? In all seriousness though, we need to get a line on what they’re really thinking. Does seem that these retro-esque names are all the rage when it comes to Plaice marketing though. Doubt Frasier is the sole reason they went for the name, though I suppose they’re looking to cast a fairly wide net.
