MediaCityUK £70m residential scheme handed over

Manchester developer Glenbrook said it has handed over High Definition, the £70 million residential scheme in Salford’s MediaCityUK, to Latimer, Clarion Housing Group’s development arm.

“Constructed by Bowmer + Kirkland, the 280-apartment build for sale scheme has been designed by Sheppard Robson across two buildings offering 132 one-bedroom, 136 two-bedroom and 12 three-bedroom apartments.

“180 apartments will be available for private sale, with the remaining 100 offered on a shared ownership basis.”

Liam Gordon, Project Manager at Glenbrook, said: “High Definition offers residents an opportunity to have an exceptional home in the heart of MediaCityUK, an area which has developed into a well-established place where people can live, work and enjoy to be.

“We have delivered over 1,300 homes across the North West to date and with further sites across the country, we hope to continue to build our reputation as a best in class residential developer with the ability to create highly sustainable schemes which become an authentic part of the fabric of the environment they are in.”

Steven Bonvini, Director of Delivery at Latimer by Clarion Housing Group, said: “We are delighted to have worked with Glenbrook to reach this significant milestone at our premium High Definition scheme, which will set the standards of future city living.

“We are immensely proud that new residents can access outstanding green space, culture and connectivity on their doorstep – all whilst living within a vibrant new community boasting high-quality and affordable apartments, co-working spaces and communal areas.”

The project team includes Abacus as the employer’s agent, SGI as structural engineer, Ridge as M&E consultant and fund monitoring by AA Projects.
