On Friday 8 March Urban & Civic and RoC Consulting celebrated a key milestone in the construction of one of Manchester’s largest and most exclusive new residential developments.

Guests were welcomed to the Manchester New Square marketing suite at 56 Princess Street, before walking through the scheme to the roof of the Carding building, one of three residential buildings within the 351 apartment development. Distinguished guests included Leader of Manchester City Council Sir Richard Leese, plus RoC Consulting and the wider project team.

Sir Richard Leese commented, “Progress at Manchester New Square has been extremely welcome. This is an important site for the city’s continued regeneration and it is fantastic to see the area meet its potential, transforming what has been for many years an underused part of our city centre.”

Philip Leech, Property Director at Urban&Civic commented, “This is a major milestone for the project, which is due for completion in the autumn of 2020.  We are delighted with the way the buildings fit harmoniously within their surroundings.  We will soon be able to announce the names of some of the restaurants and
retailers on the ground floors as well as the details of the residents’ wellness

Manchester New Square is located on the corner of Whitworth Street and Princess Street and comprises three individually designed 12-15 storey buildings (351 one two and three bedroom high quality apartments) set around a landscaped square.  At ground floor level, there will be a variety of restaurants and shops, creating a vibrant, artisan feel.
