GMI Construction is to build projects on Oldham Road and Bendix Street while the developer will self-deliver a third project in the Manchester neighbourhood, a 73-apartment complex on Goulden Street.
Developer Mulbury secured approval for the three schemes, which total 378 apartments and are all designed by Tim Groom Architects, at the end of 2020.
Mulbury City, the company’s city centre development arm, is now close to finalising the agreement with GMI to deliver 305 of the units across two 12-storey developments.
One block – containing 161 apartments – will be constructed on the corner of Bendix Street and Oldham Road, while the other, a 144-flat complex, will occupy a site off Oldham Road and Adderton Street.
Both projects are expected to be completed by summer 2023, according to a construction management statement prepared by GMI.
On Goulden Street, Mulbury Homes, part of the wider Mulbury group, will build an eight-storey apartment block incorporating the listed former fire station at the site.
Other Mulbury schemes in Manchester include the completed Excelsior Mill in Castlefield, Blossom Street in the Northern Quarter, and The Astley on Great Ancoats Street. Tim Groom Architects also designed these projects.
Elsewhere in New Cross, construction of developer Far East Consortium’s 80-home scheme on Addington Street is due to start this month.
FEC’s in-house contracting arm DEX Construction is to build the nine-storey block.
