Visible from the M60 so a prominent site and currently a bit grotty!

Stockport is feeling the ripple affect of Manchester for sure these days.

What I find astonishing about Victorian buildings (I assume its Victorian) is how durable they are and how great they look when cleaned and restored. It's just such a shame that so many were destroyed in the latter half of the last century. Still, let's be thankful for what is left and hope that many more are given a new lease of life such as this one.

125 Deansgate awarded £45m development finance

Quote:
Worthington Properties has secured a £45m loan facility from three public funds, to advance the construction of a 125,000 sq ft office in Manchester city centre.

The money has been awarded from the North West Evergreen Fund, a local authority pension fund, and the Growing Places Fund, advised by CBRE Capital Advisors.

The three-year facility will enable Worthington Properties to begin construction in early 2017, with plans for the scheme to be finished in summer 2019.

Hopefully this can start in earnest now.
