Elliot Group reveals team for £70m Salford project

Quote:
Liverpool developer Elliot Group has appointed its core professional team as it prepares to deliver its first scheme in Greater Manchester.

Known as The Residence, the £70m development will comprise 300 apartments across two towers of 14 and 33 storeys on Greengate in Salford.

With planning consent secured and work set to get underway in July, Elliot Group has now confirmed Clancy Consulting as the structural engineer and Liverpool firm Abacus as the M&E consultant.

Global consultancy White Young Green, meanwhile, is on board in the role of project manager, while Falconer Chester Hall – a longtime partner of Elliot Group – has been tasked with delivering designs put together by Manchester’s Jeffrey Bell Architects.

The scheme’s main contractor is due to be confirmed in the coming weeks.

Elliot Group MD Elliot Lawless commented: “We’re building a stable team around our business as we enter a key delivery phase.

“When the first diggers get going on Greengate we’ll have seven projects on site simultaneously with a development value of £120m.”

He added: “To spin that number of plates we need the very best people around us and I’m delighted to confirm these appointments.”

22nd floor, Beetham Tower.

One day I'll bite the bullet, buy a drink, and take the pictures from Cloud on the 23rd floor. The windows need cleaning.

So, in one Mancunian Thursday, the following has happened:-

- 1,876 apartments have been approved
- 150,000sqft of office space has been approved
- 257,377sqft of office space has been newly added to the pipeline.

Pretty cool huh

^ To think that's still the tip of the iceberg in terms of meeting unmet demand is even more astonishing.

With population you're always told to look back to look forward! Between the 2001 Census and the 2011 Census....

- Manchester City Centre increased its population from about 5,000 to 24,000
- Manchester (Local Authority) increased its population from 392,000 to 512,000
- Greater Manchester increased its population from 2.5 million to 2.7 million.

So 19,000 extra city centre residents; 120,000 extra local authority residents; and 200,000 extra Metropolitan/suburban residents.

If we were to project that onto 2021 then it gives us a city centre population of about 43,000; a Local Authority population of 632,000 and a Metropolitan population of 2.9 million.

What I do know is that, in the City Zone (i.e. City Centre) there are currently 1,314 apartments under construction - so when these are complete in the next few years that gives an extra ~2,000 people. In the same area there are 8,439 apartments just holding planning applications (approved or not), giving roughly an extra 12,000 city centre residents (all these apartments are likely to complete before 2021). I do think the city centre population will top 40,000 by 2021. At the current rate of growth it may even top 50,000!

Salford and the other boroughs are also booming - in Salford (including Salford Quays) there are nearly 3,000 apartments currently under construction - an extra 5,000 people if you consider that most of these are 2 bedroom apartments.... and in the same area there are just over 11,000 apartments waiting to start construction - an extra 16,000 people once construction in complete.

Across the whole of Central Manchester (which encompasses three boroughs), there are currently 4,430 apartments under construction - delivering an extra 6,645 beds (and people) to the urban core. In the same area there are 23,523 apartments holding planning applications, waiting to start construction. If all goes well, they will complete before 2021 as per their timescales, delivering roughly an extra 40,000 people across Greater Manchester's core.

What we're seeing in Greater Manchester is urban re-reversal. The last 100 years has seen the depopulation of the urban core. About a century ago this was led by wealthier people in the city, who had cars or who could afford the rail journey into the city every day. They moved to the then suburbs like Worsley, Didsbury, Urmston, Prestwich - all about 5/6 miles out of the City. Post-war, with no middle class money in the city core, it started to decline. The inner cities suffered with the loss of jobs and the Council embarked on a major programme of Outskirt Projects, to move the lower classes out of the inner city slums and into newly built suburban estates like Middleton and Wythenshawe. Wythenshawe was Europe's largest estate project at the time.

The population of the city centre declined to about 100 (yes that's the correct amount of zeroes!!!) in the 1990s, which is when the City Council embarked on a massive residential-led regeneration project: starting by converting the upper floors of the city's grand industrial warehouse units on and around Whitworth Street into apartments..... then private enterprise started to regenerate Castlefield, which is now one of the city's most expensive postcodes but back then it was ridden with post-industrial filth & polluted canals. In the late 1990s, the rebuilding of Hulme under the City Challenge project ensued, whilst a terrorist attack by the IRA in 1996 ripped out the city centre, giving Manchester the oppurtunity to embark on what was the biggest regeneration project of the 20th century for the city. To this day Manchester's rapid regeneration in the early 21st century is still heavily attributed to the IRA terrorist attack - which was the largest bomb ever to be detonated on the British mainland in peacetime, and had the strength of all the bombs dropped on Manchester during the Blitz rolled into one. It required quite a rebuild!



I hope this answers your question and more

Agreed, what an incredible space!

And thanks for the population details. I find this very interesting and rather exciting, and to be honest, I wouldn't be surprised if it increases even more. As more and more people move into central Manchester, it will attract even more - acting like a cascade.

This is one thing I am really looking forward to when I move to Manchester next month. Here in Frankfurt, the global trend of people moving into the central city still hasn't started, so downtown is really quite dead after the shops close and on Sunday (Germany forbids shopping on the Sabbath), but I love the idea of central Manchester growing so fast in population.

Interesting stuff about Germany on the Sabbath there Justme - and it's weird to hear that Frankfurt is dead after office hours, I always assumed it was one of those buzzing European cities which remains open after hours.

You'll probably find Central Manchester to be much busier after hours than Frankfurt, and again on Sundays - actually most Sundays are a lot like Saturdays nowadays in terms of how busy the main shopping areas are, but although we don't ban shopping on a Sunday, there are reduced operating hours on Sundays. However having said that, from next year the Mayor will have powers over operating hours devolved to him/her and so he/she may decide to extend opening hours... who knows

Certainly the main driver of city centre construction and development at the moment is residential.... Manchester just seems to have a real appetite for city centre living that isn't as widely echoed in other UK cities. Even in London you'll find that The City is very sparsely populated... and, like Frankfurt, dead after office hours (although London's West End is very highly populated).

With all these new people moving in, the city centre in Manchester will continue to get busier and busier all-hours. With this, more amenities will start to open in the city - such as schools. There are currently two new schools planned in the city centre, and one under construction. This will encourage families to live in the city centre (whereas at the moment there's a perception that only young people live in the city centre and families move to the suburbs). It's an upward spiral as you say.

The next step for Manchester is to ensure it doesn't become too overbearing. Many people who visit Manchester say it can feel claustrophobic, especially on a hot day. There are people who are sometimes 'glad to leave' or get back to the suburbs because of how overbearing and claustrophobic it can be. With all the new tall buildings planned, and the thousands of people moving in (not to mention thousands of new office workers inhabiting the new office buildings in the city), this effect is sure to get even worse. Manchester is definitely a city for people who like cities, but what we need to do is make it appeal to all - we don't want it to be an unpleasant place to live. So I think the next step is to start looking at providing open space and parkland in, or very close to, the city centre. There's lots of derelict land encircling the city centre but (as this thread shows) this is filling up pretty damn quickly - I imagine in 10 years it'll be gone. We have an opportunity, right now, to create a large park on the edge of the city centre, which will drive up land values in the area around the park and create some very attractive and well-sought-after real estate/residential areas (which will probably pay for the opportunity cost of building a park instead of developing the land).

But even then you don't necessarily need to 'greenify' a whole swathe of land, you could utilise Manchester's many river and canal spaces and create a linear park. One place in the city which we're all hoping will be converted into a linear park (with apartments/development behind it) is Pomona Island. Certainly a lot of potential here, in this former dockland:
