Progressive Living to build apartment scheme next to NOMA redevelopment in Manchester city centre
Progressive Living is to build a scheme of 64 apartments next to the £800 million NOMA redevelopment in Manchester city centre.
North Central, which will comprise 40 two-bedroom and 24 one-bedroom apartments with ground floor retail and basement parking, has been designed by architects Cartwright & Gross.
Demolition work has started on the site in Angel Street and work on the construction phase is due to start towards the end of April or early May. Negotiations are nearing completion with contractor Cruden Construction and a contract will soon be awarded which will see delivery of the completed scheme on or before October 2018.
David Fairclough, director at Progressive Living, which is based in Manchester city centre, said: “Our aim is to create attractive residential schemes in sustainable locations integrating creative design and the highest quality materials. North Central is on the fringe of the fast developing and popular NOMA district on Angel Street next to the Angel pub and opposite the Moda Living Angel Gardens scheme. We’re delighted to get started on North Central which promises to result in some fabulous new homes and which, along with Angel Gardens, will complete the frontage to Angel Street, now a major access route through the city”.
