Announcement was clearly the wrong word. Reveal is what I meant. Anyway we will find out soon.

Don't understand how this event gets so much attention year after year.

MIPIM is for overpaid people go for a shindig and a bit of a jolly - all expenses paid. Or "networking" as they call it.

And when we get the rare exciting announcement, it's normally a hypothetical scheme that will probably never see the light of day. Sorry for the negativity.

True.

But it fills a week on SSC with plenty to watch, read, and discuss.

TBF there is the odd announcement that does see the light of day.

Having closely worked closely with a few UK cities over the last 3 years on MIPIM events, this year included, I can assure you its not all its perceived to be.

Property Week Magazine.

Meanwhile, Allied London is unveiling plans for a mighty new tech development to be built on it's existing land [and all but fully let] 160,000 sq ft XYZ building. Mike Ingall calls it XYZ times 10 to give a sense of the scale of the companies ambition

Whatever it's full name - to be revealed this week at MIPIM in Cannes - will trade on this insight. The 400,00-500,000 sq ft development will include the 100,000 sq ft Bonded Warehouse.

I wouldn't expect a great deal more than a few new CGIs and models on this one.

Has anyone seen the St Michael's presentation video yet? Can't find it. Perhaps it hasn't been uploaded yet?

MIPIM: St Michael’s ‘to start on site in 2016’, says Shuttleworth

15 Mar 2016, 20:38 Jessica Middleton-Pugh in Cannes
Construction is due to start later this year on the £150m St Michael’s project in Manchester city centre, according to the scheme’s lead architect, but news on the future of two historic buildings on the site is still to be released.

The proposed 1.8-acre development between Jackson’s Row, Bootle Street and Southmill Street, known as St Michael’s, is being brought forward by a development company owned by ex-footballers Gary Neville, Ryan Giggs, as well as developer Brendan Flood and Manchester City Council.

The plot is made up of a former police station, the United Reform Synagogue, the Sir Ralph Abercromby pub and a parcel of open land.

Ken Shuttleworth, founder of Make Architects, and advisor on St Michael’s, gave a brief update on the project at the Manchester stand on the first day of MIPIM in Cannes. He presented plans for two connected areas of public realm which are due to be built in the centre of the site, one of which will be situated on the roof of the synagogue’s new home.

The future of the police station and pub remains in question, with members of the public critical of potential plans for demolition.

When questioned by Place North West, Shuttleworth declined to comment on what was going to happen to the buildings, saying that details would emerge as the development progressed.

Manchester City Council purchased the Bootle Street police station site in spring 2015 and announced its decision to appoint St Michael’s as a joint venture partner. In August, a £150m deal was secured with Singaporean-based Rowsley and Beijing Construction Engineering Group to fund the project, and in September the council approved the regeneration framework for the site.

The framework supports the development of a 200-bedroom hotel, apartments, office space, the new synagogue and public realm.

A planning application has yet to be submitted.

Plans were also revealed for a new public realm including Manchester’s very own ‘Spanish steps’ forming part of the St Micheal’s development in the city centre.

The success of Hotel Football could see it expand into Europe and Asia revealed Rowsley, the Singapore investment firm which has a majority stake in the brand.

Launched by Phil Neville, Gary Neville, Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt and Ryan Giggs, the 134-room hotel – located across the road from Manchester United’s famous Old Trafford Football stadium on Manchester’s Sir Matt Busby Way - was only established in March last year but has already made a significant impression on guests.

Speaking at MIPIM, KK Ho, managing director at Rowsley, said: "Rowsley’s growing presence in Manchester has been established in a very short space of time, largely because of our very good relationship with Manchester’s favourite footballing sons, Gary Neville and Ryan Giggs, but also because of the strong support we have received from the city council, which has been working tirelessly to welcome investors and putting Manchester on the map as a destination for foreign investment.

“Within a year, Rowsley finds itself involved in a multitude of real estate, which one way or another, provide us with a long term presence.

“One of our first investments is in the highly acclaimed Hotel Football, a 134 room hotel overlooking Old Trafford. The hotel opened to rave reviews a year ago, and with this success we intend to take this hotel brand regional and to parts of Europe as well as Asia, where the following of English and European football is so intense, that no on here without visiting Asia, can imagine.”

Plans were also revealed for a new public realm including Manchester’s very own ‘Spanish steps’ forming part of the St Micheal’s development in the city centre.

The 1.43-acre £200m scheme to transform the Jackson’s Row area surrounding the former Bootle Street Police Station, is being driven by Gary Neville and Ryan Giggs’ Strategic Planning Framework and is being funded by Rowsley, in which the billionaire part-owner of Salford City FC Peter Lim is an investor, and Beijing Construction Engineering Group.

The development will help to link the Jacson’s Row area with Deansgate and Manchester Town Hall, and has been described as the ‘missing link’ to connect key city centre areas.

Plans for the public realm include two open spaces being linked by Manchester’s very own ‘Spanish steps’, and will also include cafes and restaurants.

Mr Ho said: “The largest of our investments is the St Michael’s development situated in the heart of the city, this development will regenerate parts of the city centre and an architectural landmark.

"It will comprise 147 apartments, a 200 bed five star hotel, grade A offices and will also offer high quality dining experiences and a new contemporary public realm.

“Construction is expected to start later this year and when completed St Michael’s will be a place where both locals and tourists will come all year round to experience the city’s rich culture and diverse lifestyle.

He added: “Rowsley has entered the Manchester market at an opportune time as the city is enjoying tremendous growth and is experiencing an increasing number of tourist arrivals each year and with the support of Sir Howard Bernstein and the city council, it is very likely that Rowsley will continue to invest in big way in Manchester and we look forward to contributing much more in making Manchester an exciting place to live, work and visit.”

Interesting that the Cornerhouse is named on the Whitworth 'Arc'. Does that mean they don't plan to demolish it? There is no doubt that this is an impressive stretch of street life. As is Oxford Rd going north south. There is a whole crossroads of stuff - more a crucifix shape - that could offer an interesting way of seeing the city or even shifting its focus.

MIPIM: Select outlines pipeline

17 Mar 2016, 16:27 Jessica Middleton-Pugh in Cannes

Select Property Group is targeting a September start date for its first private rented sector scheme in Manchester, 600 units at Circle Square in joint venture with Bruntwood, as part of 1,800 proposed homes the developer has in its delivery plan across the city under its Affinity Living brand.

Select first started developing in Manchester under its student accommodation arm Vita, headed up by former Ask Real Estate chief executive Ken Knott. The first Vita scheme was completed in Manchester’s First Street in 2014.

Following from the success of Vita, Select created serviced apartment brand Citysuites, followed by PRS offer Affinity Living.

Place North West caught up with Knott on the Manchester stand at MIPIM, to discuss Select’s seemingly meteoric growth over the past 12 months, and its pipeline of projects across the country.

The time has come to deliver, says Knott

Knott acknowledged that the expansion of the company had been rapid, but stressed that “most of it’s not delivered yet, and we need to get it done.”

Knott said it was Select’s customer-centric approach that made it so successful. “Select doesn’t think like a developer,” he said. “In fact, I’m the only property man on the board. It’s focused on the end user, and that is how the Vita brand has become a proven success, with 2,000 beds in nine locations across the country.”

Two more brands from Vita are due to be announced in the coming months, Knott explained, and the developer is also keen to do further joint ventures, after announcing partnerships with both Bruntwood and Ask Real Estate in the past six months.

“We want to expand Affinity into all of the UK core cities, including Liverpool,” Knott said. “We’re targeting 5,000 Affinity apartments across the UK in the next three years, and 1,800 of those are being delivered in Manchester.

“For Vita, the UK could support between 5,000 and 10,000 units. With Citysuites we’re looking at more modest targets as the market is shallower, with 1,000 to 1,500 units.”

Select Property Group is currently in the planning stages for a range of Affinity Living schemes in Manchester. This includes 677 apartments at Circle Square, due to start on site in September, and 506 apartments at Riverside and Riverview in Salford, all in joint ventures with Bruntwood, and 694 apartments at Embankment West in a joint venture with Ask Real Estate. Embankment is part of Salford City Council’s Greengate regeneration scheme which also includes Select’s 280-unit CitySuites serviced apartments development.

Select is also on site with 604 Vita Student flats at Circle Square, with previous schemes completed in Manchester’s First Street and Liverpool.
