New Development Approved In Manchester

Manchester is certainly undergoing a construction boom, with new buildings popping up all over the city and new developments being approved regularly.

The latest of which is a residential scheme on Princess Road in the city centre, which Galliford Try has just received planning permission for, The Construction Index reported.

According to the news provider, Galliford Try Partnerships North West submitted its planning application in June, and now that it has been approved work to construct the block of flats will get underway at the beginning of next year.

The development will deliver 105 two-bedroom flats, as well as a landscaped roof terrace for those living on the fourth floor. It has been approved to a maximum height of six storeys and is

expected to be completed in summer 2019.

Speaking to The Construction Index, managing director of the construction firm Brendan Blythe commented: “Whilst still respecting the local character of the neighbourhood, this scheme will bring exciting, modern architecture to the area.”

Scaffolding contractors in Manchester aren’t just being called in to work on residential construction projects though, as there are plenty of other developments getting underway in the city.

Insider Media recently highlighted a £100 million development near Manchester Airport by Icon Industrial. The scheme will deliver ‘built to suit’ logistics and warehouse units across a 45-acre site.

Outline planning consent has been granted for up to 1 million sq ft of space, with units expected to range in size from 100,000 sq ft to 700,000 sq ft. As well as the warehouse and logistics units, the company also plans to build a petrol station, convenience store and drive-thru on the site.
