NEW £70MILLION MEDIACITYUK RESIDENTIAL SCHEME TOPS OUT
Developer Glenbrook on behalf of Latimer, Clarion Housing Group’s development arm, has marked the highest point of construction at High Definition, its £70million residential scheme in the heart of MediaCityUK, with an official topping out ceremony.
Constructed by Bowmer + Kirkland and designed by Sheppard Robson, the 280-apartment build for sale scheme comprises 231,000 sq ft high quality accommodation across two buildings, ranging in height from 14 storeys up to 17 storeys. The entire project team met on the 17th floor to mark the occasion, which also included: Abacus as the employers agent, SGI as structural engineer, Ridge as M&E consultant and fund monitoring by AA Projects.
Delivered in partnership with MediaCityUK, the development will provide 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.
Speaking about the milestone Liam Gordon, Project Manager at Glenbrook, commented: “We are extremely encouraged by the excellent progress being made here at MediaCityUK. The development is coming forward at a time when people are seeing the true value of living in a community environment and one that is near to green and blue spaces with access to excellent leisure and cultural facilities. MediaCityUK offers the full package and we look forward to working with our partners to reach completion in November 2022.”
Richard Cook, Group Director of Development for Latimer, said: “Our commitment to supporting people in achieving home ownership continues and we are delighted at the progress made by the entire team which will see 100 affordable homes available in this location.”
