Manchester - August 2017 Development Update



A record-breaking quarter. I'm not going to list all of the individual projects anymore simply because the list is too long and is a pain to sift through I imagine. It's available on request though.


_____________________________

Crane Count

We hit peak confidence in May when we hit 40 but we're sadly back down again now. But! With a bunch of piling drills appearing all over the city signalling the start of numerous major projects, I still think 50 is within our sights before the end of the year.




(Last updated 01/08/2017)

_____________________________

Stats


Number of projects under construction Vs completions
  • Number of construction projects is still steadily increasing at a healthy rate, hitting a new record of 123 projects under construction. This has been the sixth consecutive quarterly rise in projects under construction and when you consider that 16 projects completed construction this quarter it makes that even more impressive. In total, 28 projects started construction this quarter - including Erie Basin at Salford Quays (15 floors/270 apartments), Oxygen Tower (34 floors, 343 apartments), Outwood Wharf (18, 8, 6 floors; 263 apartments), Landmark (14 floors, 178,000sqft of office space), New Square (351 apartments and retail and restaurants around a central plaza); and Kampus (478 apartments, new retail and restaurants).



Planning applications Vs Under Construction Vs Completions
  • There are now 204 projects holding a planning application. This does not include projects which are under construction or complete.

  • The number of proposals with planning applications has been constantly rising since summer 2013, and this is despite many projects starting construction. However, There has been a slight slowdown in the growth of projects with planning applications, especially when compared to the period November 2016-February 2017. It seems this is beginning to level off as projects are beginning to enter the construction phase. There has also been a slow down in the number of new proposals recently, although this number is still very high.

  • As noted previously, there has been a steady, consistent and healthy increase in construction projects for over a year now.




New and Progressing projects
  • NEW projects are those which have been revealed since the last update in May. There have been 38 NEW projects announced since May, compared to 34 announced between February and May. This represents roughly 1 new project every 3 days announced for Manchester, and is above both the 2 year and 4 year quarterly averages (36 and 31 respectively) but overall the number of New projects announced has tailed off recently. This could be worrying as it indicates a slow down, however as noted previously this is still a very impressive number of new schemes.

  • Progressing projects are those which have progressed up the developmental ladder. For instance, if a project gains planning approval; or starts construction; or completes. If a project completes more than one step of the developmental ladder during one quarter it is counted twice.

  • Since May there have been a record-breaking number of progressive projects as a flurry of major planning committee meetings occurred across all central Manchester boroughs; and a number of projects started construction. Many projects also started groundworks this quarter, including Blossom St (Mulbury Homes - 145 apartments), 2-4 Chester Road (21, 12, 8 floors, 188 apartments), Citu NQ (9 floors, 183 apartments) and 11 York St (8 floors, 86,000sqft of office space).

  • In total, 28 projects gained approval this quarter, and a further 28 started construction.

  • There was also a noteworthy amount of schemes being submitted for planning approval this quarter. Notable schemes included the Minto & Turner warehouse conversion at Kampus, which will provide 59 apartments, and newly opened-up Little David St as the centrepiece for 14,000sqft of retail; 1-5 New Wakefield St (30 floors, 573 student accommodation rooms); The Dye Works in Ordsall (7-8 floors, 3 blocks, 252 apartments); Moxy Hotel Spinningfields (145 bedrooms, 10 floors), Derwent St Ordsall (25 floors, 183 apartments), Angel Meadow Park (40, 22, 17, 12 and 9 floors, 756 apartments set around retail, restaurants and leisure space and a park); and the Piccadilly Gardens redevelopment, amongst many others.

  • All of this contributed to a record-breaking 119 progressing projects which shows a lot of movement within Manchester's development list.





_____________________________

Large-scale project news
  • Manchester's new tallest building has been given planning permission. Trinity Islands Tower X will rise 213m above the west of the city centre, alongside its 140m, 128m, 94m and 94m little siblings. It'll have a restaurant and observation deck on the top floors, offering unrivalled (for now) views across Manchester and the North West of England. There'll be nearly 1,500 apartments at this mega-scheme, as well as 50,000sqft of retail, restaurants and leisure space, a new school, swimming pool, spa, gym and business facilities. Allied London is the developer.

  • Elsewhere, Found Space has also been approved. It will feature two new buildings - the first a 138m skyscraper with 40 floors and 375 apartments which will start construction in Q1 2018, the second a 341,800sqft office block which will start construction once it gains a pre-let.

  • Allied London's renovation project at London Road Fire Station was also approved. It'll feature 29,633sqft of retail, restaurant and leisure space set around an impressive courtyard, with a 91-bedroom hotel and an underground events space. Levitt-Bernstein was the architect.

  • Fred Done's project at Citu NQ has started groundworks in the past few weeks and will hopefully be under construction by the next update in November. Groundworks have also started at his other project at The Crescent in Salford, meanwhile construction continues at Trinity Blackfriars.

  • Major projects which have started construction this quarter include Oxygen Tower (34 floors, 343 apartments), Outwood Wharf (18, 8, 6 floors; 263 apartments), Landmark (14 floors, 178,000sqft of office space), New Square (351 apartments and retail and restaurants around a central plaza); and Kampus (478 apartments, new retail and restaurants).

  • Select Property Group have started construction on Affinity Living Riverside (16 floors, 185 apartments). They've also started groundworks on nearby Riverview (33 floors, 318 apartments).

  • At Salford Quays, as well as Erie Basin, The Lightbox (20 floors, 238 apartments) started construction - as did the renovation of Custom House and Furness House at Fortis Quay. These previously-office buildings will be extended in height by several floors and converted to over 170 apartments between them. They are part of a wider plan for Fortis Quay which will progress during the rest of 2017 involving over 600 more apartments and a 90m/26 storey tower. X1 have also started construction on their second MediaCity tower - at 26 floors and 86m.

  • In the Northern Quarter, renovation work has started on the old Mackie Mayor building, which is being converted into an artisan food market. A number of retailers have already been signed up in what promises to be an extremely popular attraction.

  • In transport news, electrification has started on the Victoria to Stalybridge line, and Metrolink have submitted a planning application to expand Crumpsall station in preparation for the arrival of the Trafford Park line.

  • DeTrafford have released plans for their Great Jackson scheme, which will involve four buildings; 32, 26, 18 and 5 floors - with 399 apartments and a 50-bed retirement home right in the heart of the city. At ground floor level there will be numerous shops, bars and restaurants set around a tight-knit series of streets. A planning application is expected shortly.

  • Plans for St Michaels have been redrawn and released to the public. The new plans involve keeping the surrounding streetscape open, losing one tower and retaining the Abercrombie pub and Bootle St police station facade. The plans have been widely welcomed by members of the public, who campaigned ferociously to get the previous plans redrawn.

Apartments

Summary of facts
  • There are now over 12,400 apartments under construction across inner Manchester. The majority of these are shared between the City Zone, Salford Quays and central Salford, which account for 11,112 of homes under construction in the city.

  • An amazing quarter for Salford Quays, where over 1,000 apartments have started construction since May.

  • Overall, there are now nearly 14,800 apartments approved but not under construction - including nearly 5,000 which are now at groundworks stage, likely to start construction before the end of the year. There are over 5,500 units under consideration by the various Manchester councils. The total pipeline number of apartments, including those without planning applications, is now nearing 46,000 - which is up another thousand since May.

  • There are now 217 individual residential projects across all the boroughs that make up inner Manchester. The average scheme size is 218 units.

  • A full list of apartments in the pipeline is available here, it won't be posted here due to size.




Apartments under construction by district

An absolutely stunning quarter for the City Zone, Central Salford and Salford Quays where nearly 2,500 apartments have started construction collectively. Trafford and Hulme are still plodding along with nearly 900 between them but it's surely only a matter of time before they too start getting major proposals.





Apartments in the planning system by district

Number of apartments in the planning system (but not under construction) has struggled to keep up with the sheer number of units that have entered the construction phase this quarter - especially in the City Zone where that number has declined by nearly one thousand. Salford Quays has also seen a flurry of construction starts which has left its remaining pipeline relatively deleted.





Apartments delivery gap

With a large number of construction starts this quarter combined with a comparatively low amount of planning submissions the delivery gap has managed to close significantly, now the gap is down to just roughly 8,000 units. Over 3,000 units have started construction this quarter which is an incredible amount.







Offices

Summary of facts
  • Barings have finally started construction on Landmark (178,000sqft) near St Peter's Square, meanwhile Worthington Group are due to start construction soon on 125 Deansgate (113,500sqft).

  • One Spinningfields (267,000sqft) is due to complete and open by November, which will have a huge impact on the amount of office space under construction. It will open 100% occupied.

  • There is now a record-breaking amount of office space under construction in Manchester's City Zone - nearly 1.3m sqft altogether, with 1.45m sqft under construction across all of central Manchester.







Full list






Tall Buildings

Summary of facts
  • There have been several new proposals for tall buildings this quarter. Forshaw & DLA Design submitted a planning application for Derwent St in Ordsall (27 floors, 83m); whilst DeTrafford announced their proposals for a 32 and 22-storey scheme at Great Jackson Street.

  • Unite also submitted a planning application for a 30-storey, 92.1m student accommodation tower on New Wakefield Street.

  • Trinity Islands was approved, which will include Manchester's tallest building amongst other skyscrapers.

  • Plans for St Michael's were redrafted and the tower there is now 31 floors and 135m.

  • X1 started construction on a second tower at their MediaCity project - 26 floors, 86m.

  • There are now 10 projects over 80m under construction in Manchester - one of these is over 200m, 4 of these are over 100m and 5 of them are over 80m.

  • Overall, there are 2 buildings over 200m in the pipeline; 2 over 150m; 20 over 100m and 19 over 80m. There are 43 tall (80m+) buildings in total planned for Manchester.



Any problems or errors please let me know,

Ed



Next update will be in November

Peel Holdings, one of the largest Manchester based property developers have so much to answer for.

2017 and Pomona is still in such a sorry state.

Picture by Bricks & Mortar, posted tonight.

The cladding is superb.

And to think, there are 4 towers next to each other, all with the same cladding.

Great Northern plans to go before public

The Manchester public is to have the opportunity to comment on another key city centre scheme, with Trilogy Real Estate and Peterson Group inviting feedback on proposals for Great Northern.



The sessions will be held on 10 August and 24 August, between 3pm and 8pm on both days.

30 Brown Street.

Quote:
Russells on site with £8m Brown Street refurbishment

Russells Construction is set to start demolition of the external façade at 30 Brown Street, Manchester.

Now.



After refurbishment.(CGI)



The contractor is undertaking the £8m refurbishment on the instruction of Boultbee Brooks Real Estate (BBRE), the UK based real estate investor/developer.

The project will see the complete transformation of the five-storey building including a new 7,500 sq ft roof-top floor, along with a retail unit on the ground floor, delivering 48,000 sq ft of Grade A office space with exposed services.

Over the 12-month build programme new glazed panels, separated by fluted rendered columns, will be installed. Internally, a new four-storey lightwell, from floors two to six, will be built.

Each floor will be remodelled with new amenities and public areas to create flexible floor plates for the new tenants. A new entrance atrium will also be created on the ground floor.

Designed by PRP Architects and project managed by OBI Property, 30 Brown Street is expected to complete by summer 2018.

Roger James, development director for BBRE, said: “It’s great to see 30 Brown Street construction works underway. We have put together an excellent team to deliver the project and look forward to securing new occupiers for the space over the coming months.”

James Bostock, building consult at OBI Property said: “The refurbishment of 30 Brown Street will create a stand-out building with an eye-catching glazed exterior. The tired, inflexible interior space will become a bright, modern, office environment which will be much more to the taste of current occupiers and in keeping with the Grade A standard.”

The project is the latest city centre scheme for Russells, which is also working on the £35m Hanover restoration at NOMA, and Property Alliance Group’s Axis Tower on Albion Street and Oxygen in Store Street. The team has also recently completed Motel One-Royal Exchange in Cross Street.

Director Andrew Russell said: “The typical low level 1980s office building, 30 Brown Street will be almost unrecognisable when the refurbishment is complete. The brick façade will be replaced with large glazed panels and internally it will be remodelled and upgraded significantly.

“We are pleased to have been appointed by OBI Property following a competitive tender process, and to secure our latest city centre scheme. As this year’s Deloitte Crane Survey demonstrated, investment into Manchester is at a nine-year high across residential, office and hotel development and we are well-placed to take advantage of that. Russells is currently working on schemes in each of these sectors and successfully beating national contractors for projects right across the North West.”

Just having a look on wiki (can't sleep, ugh!)


If tower X above from Trinity was complete now it would be the second tallest building in the U.K after The Shard.


22 Bishopgate will be completed before and taller. Hopefully third place is still within reach!

I'm gonna miss Beetham being this lone pinnacle towering above the city. It's gonna vanish into a much taller skyline before long.

I think it's also worth appreciating that most of these tower proposals in Manchester are bulky, box-shaped skyscrapers rather than needlepoint spires or architectural-feature cheats with big masts or telecomms stuff on top. They're giant cereal boxes. Really feels more boxy and Chicagoish than some of the oddly shaped stuff happening in London.

It wouldn't be though. It's 237m AOD, not AGL. I believe it's 213m AGL, which would make it the 5th tallest (4th if you want to ignore Heron Tower's spire).

Even if for some reason you did want to use AOD heights (why would you, no one in Manchester is going to be looking up from the Ordnance Datum unless they've dug a big hole?) then it still wouldn't be the second tallest building in the UK, as 1 Canada Square is something like 244m AOD (and in that case you can stand at the Ordnance Datum by standing at the river).

Many developers use AOD disingenuously to make their scheme sound bigger than they actually are, it isn't something which is confined to Manchester.
