Thinking about it I wouldn't be surprised if they took exchange square/masshouse

Well Nikal did say they were going to change it to a PRS led scheme.

That's what Apache/Moda are focusing on.

As God is my judge, I was thinking this last night but I couldn`t be ar5ed to put my laptop back on.

It might be why Nikal have gone so quiet on this front and it might include the Lighthouse scheme too.

And that's just one site in Leeds right? Probably more to come.

Just trying to work out how many units would be left for Birmingham on a avarage, but if Moda are throwing 1000 units into one project I've got no clue what to expect for Birmingham.

It's been reported for months that leeds scheme would accommodate 1,000 units. That's half taken up in 4 sites. Another 4 to go. Who's to say they aren't eyeing up the 1,000 units at masshouse.

One site alone has 1,500 units planned, announced this week. There's the other 1,800 unit scheme that was announced a month ago over one site.

Whatever is planned for Birmingham is likely to be of similar size.

It all depends on their connections. Moda are a leeds based company so I assume their biggest schemes will be there. Bit like seven capital here. I'd be happy with a good 400 unit PRS scheme. I don't think we'll come close to the likes of city one unless it is exchange square.

I honestly think Exchange square is nothing but a PR scheme to up the price of the site. The next announcement will simply be somebody else buying the site, again putting out exciting renders and proposals and sitting on it again, till a buyer comes in and does the same.
Come 2020-25 when HS2 is visibly being constructed someone might get serious.

Where has all of this come from considering they completed one building which was left uncomplete after the recession and have cordoned off a second site they received permission on earlier this year?

Just because there isn't movement right away doesn't mean there won't be movement.

Well I'm going on the fact that the Exchange Square site has had numerous plans, proposals and announcements going back over 10 years or more, and the site remains a" temporary" car park

So did arena central, paradise circus, eastside locks ... all now under construction. Have some faith. They have developed nearly 400 apartments already.

Came across this earlier on regarding Liverpool

Quote:
Joint venture developers Moda Living and Apache Capital Partners have lodged plans with Liverpool City Council for an £80m private rented block of flats on Liverpool’s waterfront.
Plans in for £80m Liverpool PRS tower block
