There's nothing like starting a new project in City Centre Manchester during the lead up to Christmas! The £3 million, 9 month project is a conversion from a 4 story office block above commercial outlets to create 60 deluxe Student Studio Apartments.
Our Belgrave and Warwick Student Accommodation project is flying ahead during this 13month project and we are happy to see some of the first show apartments ready for viewing.
With the Manchester Apartment Market still booming we are happy to be working with our Client to provide some attractive studio's and one bed apartments, nestled within the leafy suburb of Eccles and Ellesmere Park. We are currently working hard to transform this large Victorian Semi into 18 apartments that provide all the right features and amenities that the rental market are seeking. Colbre Projects have a great pedigree within the refurbishment sector converting many properties over the years into accommodation that suits all our clients purposes and we're well on the way to whipping this one into shape too.
Having been fortunate to work on this new housing project in Hulme Manchester, we decided to put up a CCTV camera to record the activities of the site through to completion 18mths later. We certainly can see a lot of work happening but its a great way to see how our Northern weather in its full glory, rain sun snow and wind can impact on building sites.
THE BARREL YARD MANCHESTER
As Spring approaches we are proud to announce that we will once again be working with our clients Forshaw Land and Property Ltd and AA Projects Ltd acting as the employers agent. We will be working in partnership with the Design team from HattrellDSone, Structural Engineers Alan Johnstone Partnership and M&E Design Engineer DM Design to complete our largest Design and Build project to date. Comprising a 4 storey 25 Apartment block and 17 houses in 4 blocks, this includes full infrastructure and adopted roads. The project is due to complete early 2018 and we have installed a time lapse camera for regular updates on our progress.
Following on from the Award winning success of our sister project (Queens Brewery) on the adjacent site which was finished last Summer, we have great hopes for this exciting new build development.
