Galliford Try Partnerships North West is developing the apartment scheme on Princess Road, Manchester and put in a planning application in June.
It will now begin on-site in early 2018, with the development set for completion in summer 2019.
The red brick building is designed by architect IDP, stepping in height along Princess Road, up to a maximum of six storeys. It will have 105 two-bedroom flats, as well as a landscaped roof terrace for residents on its fourth floor, on one of Manchester’s busiest main roads.
Brendan Blythe, managing director at Galliford Try Partnerships North West, said: “Whilst still respecting the local character of the neighbourhood, this scheme will bring exciting, modern architecture to the area.”
