Construction Enquirer News Work to begin early next year at Bowler’s Yard
Construction is set to start early next year on a new nine-storey residential development in Manchester.
Developer Scarborough International Properties Limited in joint venture with Metro Holdings Limited of Singapore and Hualing Group of China, has been granted detailed planning consent by Manchester City Council, for the development of Bowler’s Yard.
The developers will soon be appointing contractors with a view to starting construction early next year with completion expected in mid-2022.
The development will comprise 62, one and two-bedroom apartments over levels one to nine, designed by CJCT Architects, with the ground floor providing a double-height residents’ entrance hall, bicycle stores and undercroft electric car charging points.
Bowler’s Yard represents the third phase of residential development by Scarborough, Metro and Hualing at New Islington, following Milliners Wharf, which completed in 2010, and the Hatbox, which completed in spring 2016 and sold out before the building completed.
Paul Kelly, Development Director at Scarborough said: “We are very pleased with the support we have received from Manchester City Council.
“Bowlers Yard is another opportunity for Scarborough and our international partners to create a high-quality, residential scheme in one of the UK’s most vibrant, cosmopolitan and progressive cities.
“It underlines not only our commitment to deliver our major residential and mixed-use developments, in a dynamic city where there is strong demand for housing but also Manchester’s attractiveness to international investors”.
