Specialist housing developer Mulbury has been given the go ahead to build 143 apartments in Ancoats, Manchester, aimed at the private rented sector (PRS).
The £30m development, on a 0.6-acre site at the junction of Blossom Street and Great Ancoats Street, was approved by Manchester City Council’s planning committee yesterday.
It will see the construction of two separate buildings, one eight-storeys and one seven-storeys providing a mix of one, two and three-bedroom apartments, as well as three townhouses. There will be ground floor reception and concierge areas, around 4,300 sq ft of commercial space, and car parking and cycle spaces.
James Alderson, head of Mulbury City, said: “This is a high-quality PRS scheme that will contribute to better housing choice in this fast-growing and exciting part of the city. We’re thrilled to have gained a planning consent and will now begin working towards securing a funding package for the development and appointing a contractor. We look forward to engaging further with the local community as the scheme progresses.”
The 143 unit scheme will be made up of 49 one-bedroom apartments, 90 two-bedroom apartments and one three-bedroom apartment, plus the three townhouses.
The scheme will be Mulbury’s second city centre PRS development. It is currently on site with its first Manchester PRS scheme at Port Street, which is being funded by M&G Real Estate.
