Mulbury unveils £35m Manchester PRS scheme

Developer Mulbury has submitted plans for a second build to rent scheme in Manchester city centre.

The £35m development of 145 apartments would be built on a 0.6-acre site at the junction of Blossom Street and Great Ancoats Street.

The scheme proposes two separate eight-storey buildings that would provide a mix of one, two and three-bedroom apartments, ground floor reception and concierge areas, around 6,100 sq ft of commercial space, and car parking and cycle spaces.

James Alderson, head of Mulbury City, said: “This site is in a great location to provide high-quality city living on the doorstep of the Northern Quarter. We believe it will contribute enormously to the ongoing resurgence of Ancoats as a vibrant city centre neighbourhood.”

The scheme will regenerate a partially vacant and under-utilised site that currently houses a derelict electricity substation and surface level car park. The 145 proposed units are made up of 49 one-bedroom apartments, 95 two-bedroom apartments and one three-bedroom apartment.

Mulbury recently announced a funding deal with M&G Real Estate for its first PRS scheme – a £27.6m scheme of 135 apartments in the Northern Quarter, just across the road where Port Street meets Great Ancoats Street.
