Northern Quarter resi boom continues with latest Done project
A joint venture between Betfred founder Fred Done’s development company Salboy and Factory Estates has submitted a planning application for 183 flats in Manchester’s Northern Quarter.
The site, currently used as a surface level car park, will be redeveloped into a block of up to nine storeys, totalling 183 apartments with four ground floor commercial units and rooftop gardens.
The scheme by the Tibst joint venture has been branded Citu NQ. The architect is IDP Group Architects, based in the Northern Quarter.
Once complete the residential units will be available for open market sale.
Euan Kellie Property Solutions is advising the joint venture, known as Tibst, on the planning application.
Subject to planning approval the development is due to start on site in the first half of 2017.
Ellie Philcox of Euan Kellie Property Solutions, said: “The Tib Street site is only one of the few within the Northern Quarter which remains underutilised, and the proposed development will realise the full potential of this site and provide new homes, as well as commercial space to support the continued regeneration of this part of the city centre.”
