Plans readied for 244-home Picture This debut

Working alongside JV partner Progressive Living, the newly formed developer/operator is drawing up plans to create a residential community on the former Ritz Cinema car park in Stockport.

Picture This and Progressive have launched a consultation on the proposals, a mix of 244 one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments within an 18-storey block.

The scheme, designed by AEW Architects, will aim for Passivhaus and Lifetime Homes standards. Re-form is advising on landscapes.

The development would feature a rooftop growing space for residents and non-residents and a neighbourhood hub on the ground floor.

Progressive will develop the scheme and Picture This will operate it upon completion. A planning application is expected later this year.

Stockport Council’s cabinet agreed to sell the Fletcher Street site to Progressive Living, which owns the adjacent Victoria House, last year.

The developer then partnered up with Picture This, which is headed by former JLL colleagues Shannon Conway and Mike Nicholson.

The partnership has been allocated close to £6m to support the development, according to a GMCA report.

The money has been allocated to the project from the combined authority’s £150m brownfield housing pot, handed down as part of the trailblazer devolution deal announced last March.

A brilliant JV. Can’t wait to see this one happen

I met Picture This today as they were hand delivering information about their plans and talking to businesses. Not met many developers who do that. The scheme sounds refreshing and will be a boon to us and other independent businesses. Really impressed.

As per usual a tall building with a view now blocking the building behinds view. How long before this building gets blocked. Not to mention the amount they will have to pay for service charges. No imagination in the design. All about making money.
