It's truly inspiring and inspirational to see such regular and detail updates for many low rise schemes in Manchester , we generally turn our nose up and look down at any scheme which is less than 10 floors in London.

Much thanks has to be given to VDB/Wingtips and all the photo contributions from fellow Manc forumers promoting such a fantastic range of developments, there's something special about the xyz building, cladding looks fantastic already, canny wait to see it finished!

Definitely agree. The MCR collective on here do a great job.

Some of our low-rise schemes are our best schemes. There are a lot of buildings over 30 stories going up in Manchester at the moment they're erm.... architecturally questionable, shall we say

Yes kudos to VDB and Wingtips - really good to see this thread doing so well. What pleases me is that (with a very few exceptions) there seems to be a commitment to high-density midrises as the city expands outwards - certainly eastwards and westwards. We could end up with a very large, high density expanded central zone of six stories and above, which would be very nice indeed. It is pretty exciting that we are able to accommodate the predicted population growth within this central core and in a sensible, high-density, European fashion. Personally, I would rather that any towers are - at least in the main - for offices rather than for residential.

And I agree that that XYZ building has a certain "je ne sais quoi" about it - at least in that render!

Yes, good work on the update VBD, nice to see there is plenty in the pipeline, lets hope it continues!

Would be nice to see more redevelopment to the immediate North of the city centre, still plenty of warehousing dross around Cheetham Hill Road, Bury New Road. Also around Ardwick as you head out of town from Piccadilly Station.

Mulbury moves into city centre residential
PNW: http://www.placenorthwest.co.uk/news....9mHWxfC1.dpuf

9 Nov 2015, 15:11


Quote:
James Alderson has joined Manchester-based developer Mulbury from Arcadis to lead a new city centre residential development business.

Alderson will spearhead the developer’s recently launched Mulbury City division focused on private rented sector and other investor-backed housing development opportunities.

His past experience includes roles with Grosvenor, Gardiner & Theobald and Balfour Beatty while his project highlights include work on Liverpool ONE, Spinningfields in Manchester and the new Woburn Center Parcs.

Greg Mulligan, director of Mulbury Homes, said: “Our first PRS scheme at Port Street in Manchester’s Northern Quarter will be starting on site early next year and we have number of other city centre schemes in the land acquisition and planning stages.


“James’s experience of handling major city centre development projects will be invaluable as we expand our Mulbury City offering.”

Mulbury was previously known for its social housing projects in partnership with housing associations.

Alderson said: “Opportunities to develop schemes under PRS and similar investor-backed housing models are growing, particular in Manchester, but also in other cities across the North. Mulbury has grown on the back of its desire to provide a range of solutions to housing need and we are well placed to help our clients benefit from these new opportunities.”

Mulbury was given planning permission in September 2015 for its development of 134 apartments on the corner of Port Street and Great Ancoats Street. The £30m development was designed by Manchester-based Tim Groom Architects.

The Lymm-based company is in discussions with several institutional investors interested in purchasing and letting the properties upon completion. Mulbury also has plans in the pipeline for further city centre sites, as well as developments in Old Trafford, Castlefield and Salford.
