Construction at Mulbury’s £30m private rented sector development at the junction of Blossom Street and Great Ancoats Street in Manchester has reached its highest point.
The 143-unit scheme is being developed by Mulbury for DTZ Investors. Bardsley Construction is the main contractor, with Cidon Construction engaged as frame contractor. Tim Groom Architects designed the project.
The development is made up of two separate buildings – one eight storeys and one seven storeys – and will feature communal areas and a roof-garden, as well as ground floor commercial space. It is due to complete in June 2019.
Mulbury is also behind the Port Street development on the other side of Great Ancoats Street, a £26.7m PRS scheme being developed for M&G Real Estate.
James Alderson, head of Mulbury City, the company’s city centre residential arm, said: “This is another important PRS development that supports the city council’s housing delivery strategy.
“It’s been great to see this development coming out of the ground, just a stone’s throw from our other live PRS development across the road in the Northern Quarter.
“We’re incredibly thankful to DTZ Investors for backing our vision for this site, which delivers another development that reflects the true values of the private-rented-sector.”
Roly Bardsley, chairman of Greater Manchester-based Bardsley, said: “Achieving topping out at Blossom Street and delivering Mulbury’s first Manchester PRS scheme at nearby Port Street puts Bardsley, a proud Manchester company, at the heart of the transformation of the city with such statement residential developments.”
