Forrest bags £28m Manchester flats scheme

Forrest has been appointed as main contractor to deliver a £28.2m residential development in Manchester’s Northern Quarter.

The nine storey development, called CituNQ, will consist of 183 one and two bedroom apartments with luxury penthouses. The scheme will also feature ground-floor commercial units, rooftop gardens and an internal courtyard.

The client is Tibst, a joint venture between Factory Estates and Salboy. The architect is IDP and the project manager is Artal.

The site of CituNQ is a former NCP level car park bounded by Tib Street, Church Street, Joiner Street and Bridgewater Place. Planning approval was received in February and Forrest expects to start on site imminently.

The scheme follows Forrest’s work in delivering M-One Central for Factory Estates, a new-build high rise development on Great Ancoats Street that is scheduled to complete this autumn.

Forrest project director Allan Smith said: “This exclusive development, sat within the Smithfield conservation area, will sensitively continue the regeneration of the vibrant Northern Quarter.”

Chris Bowman, managing director of Factory Estates, said: “We are delighted to be starting work on this prominent prime residential development site in the heart of the Northern Quarter. The final scheme, due in early 2019, will be an exciting new addition to this part of the City including over 14500 sqft of retail and leisure premises and 183 luxury apartments.”
