Nice, just a shame Chapel St is subsiding already in many parts - there are a number of large pot holes already but as pedestrian, this should be great! hope they take a lane out and stick zebra crossings + speedbumps in!

Probably in need of a bump (and a rename?) this one. In anticipation of whatever Manchester Life Development Company Ltd may bring to MIPIM.

Just to bring this over into here, re the shortlisted bid from MCC for 863 units, from last year.

https://www.gov.uk/government/public...nd-2-shortlist

Just been looking back through the Manchester Place/Life announcement from June. Explains things a little.

Executive - 24 June 2014 - A Stimulus for Residential Growth

Quote:
6. Build to Rent Application to Support the Manchester Life Initiative

6.1 The City Council has been in dialogue with the HCA for some time on the most appropriate method of bringing forward high quality development on sites available in the Ancoats and New Islington areas. In October 2013 the City Council submitted an Expression of Interest for the Build to Rent programme, in advance of identifying a development partner for these sites.

This Expression of Interest has been shortlisted for further due diligence, subject to the City Council identifying the partner who will take the Build to Rent Loan ADUG (or a wholly owned subsidiary) has been identified as the partner who will take this loan and, subject to any further comments from the Executive, officers will assist ADUG work through the due diligence process required by the HCA.
Question still is, which are the 6 initial sites for the c.830 units. A map wasn't publicly made available with the Exec report.

This is the only one I've seen with marked plots at New Islington.

A very interesting interview with Richard Leese about Manchester Life, etc.

Has anyone stumbled on the mock-up Manchester Life apartment yet, located somewhere in Ancoats?

Just a snippet below. Click on the link for the rest of the article/interview.

Quote:
BIG INTERVIEW: Sir Richard Leese Building For The Long-Term

He also wants the City to lead by example.

Manchester Life (ML), its joint venture with Abu Dhabi United Group, has been working since last summer on plans for the first phase of 800 or so homes on sites in Ancoats and New Islington.

The first planning applications should be made soon and more information may, or may not, come out at MIPIM – the annual property convention in Cannes in March. http://www.manchesterconfidential.co...-The-Long-term

I got a leaflet through the post in respect of Murray Mills the other day. Doesn't give much away, unfortunately as I am a long time lurker and not a regular poster I can't post images of the flyer.

There is an open day about the redevelopment of the site on 5 March.

Cheers for the info, great news. Posting a link will probably work without the 'http://www' part, or adding additional spaces.

Missed the announcement last year re Manchester Life's acquisition. Article here mentioned Feilden Clegg Bradley & more of the sites.

Two more sites, on Blossom Street and the former Stockbridge Airco site nearby will have new build schemes designed for rent.

Juts back from a presentation on ADUGS investment in new homes in the City. 5 plots initially in Ancoats and New Islington including the refurb of the historic Murrays Mills which looks amazing.

For those that know Ancoats they are also completing new developments on the Old Stockbridge Airco sites and the site of the old Express Motors which have been empty for years.

A total of 930 new homes. First schemes in for planning next month with hopefully a start on site this year.

Very interesting for any stattos interested in development in the City.

Is on in the St Peters Church (practice room for the Halle) in Ancoats until 7 tonight if anyone wants to pop along.

So how much of this are we talking? (Quick highlight via Google Maps)



Express Motors towards the top, Airco middle (previous permission covered both sides of Hood St), Murrays' Mills lower.

I find it strange that we (City) owners didn't want to start with holt town area. Surely it fits with improving the immediate area around the stadium and would start utilising the Holt Town Metrolink stop.

As this is a joint venture between the CC and City owners, there must have been a compromise with the City Council to continue the redevelopment of Ancoats and New Islington first.

Be interesting to get an idea of these new plans for Murrays' Mills & any possible additions.

This was the previous architect/scheme (2004 preferred developer contest).

Bah. Probably true.

As a local resident, I'd much rather see the empty space and the Good-Lord-Please-Bulldoze-ASAP units around Beswick Street get done first.

And take that friggin' Eyesore of the Mitchell Arms with them.

I think Sainburys pulled out so it's probably floundering.
