Bardsley Construction has been appointed by developer Mulbury to build a block of 135 apartments at 97-105 Port Street in the Northern Quarter of Manchester.
The eight to 14-storey development on the corner of Port Street and Great Ancoats Street marks Mulbury’s debut in the private rented sector (PRS). The project is financed by M&G Real Estate.
Bardsley is due to start on site in November with occupation expected in the summer of 2018.
When complete, Port Street will offer mainly one and two-bed apartments with balconies, communal roof top gardens, a reception area and 6,000 sq ft of commercial office space at ground level. The development was designed by Manchester firm Tim Groom Architects and secured planning permission from Manchester City Council in 2015.
Bardsley Construction procurement director Ged Rooney said: “Our hard-earned reputation for the successful delivery of high quality residential developments such as Port Street on time and on budget in locations throughout the north of England is reflected in this prestigious appointment by Mulbury.”
