The annual Deloitte’s Crane Survey, now in its 16th year, recently announced that construction in Manchester City Centre is at its highest level since the recession.  This announcement coincides with Progressive Living starting work on a key development in the city centre, North Central, located on Angel Street.

North Central, is situated adjacent to the NOMA district on Angel Street. NOMA is an £800 million, 20-acre mixed-use redevelopment scheme in Manchester. It is the largest development project in North West England ahead of developments such as MediaCityUK and Atlantic Gateway.

North Central is a 64-unit scheme designed by Architects Cartwright & Gross comprising of 40 2bed and 24 1bed apartments with ground floor retail and basement parking. Demolition on the existing building has started and work on the construction phase is due to start towards the end of April or early May. Negotiations are nearing completion with contractor Cruden Construction and a contract will soon be awarded which will see delivery of the completed scheme on or before October 2018.

Progressive Living developments are based in Manchester city centre.  Commenting on the start of works on North Central, David Fairclough, Director of Progressive Living said, “Our aim is to create attractive residential schemes in sustainable locations integrating creative design and the highest quality materials. North Central is on the fringe of the fast developing and popular NOMA district on Angel Street next to the Angel pub and opposite the Moda Living Angel Gardens scheme. We’re delighted to get started on North Central which promises to result in some fabulous new homes and which, along with Angel Gardens, will complete the frontage to Angel Street, now a major access route through the City”.
