100 New Homes In Manchester
 

LEND Lease has begun construction of 102 new homes at Potato Wharf, its latest residential development in the city.

“We will be providing much-needed new housing which will go on sale to prospective homeowners in the North West in 2014.”

Along with the 215 apartments recently completed in the Green Quarter, this will bring the number of new homes in Manchester built by Lend Lease to almost 1500.

The Potato Wharf development, situated in Castlefield, will comprise 102 new apartments built over eight levels. There will be a mix of one and two bedroom properties, all with open-plan living areas, high-spec kitchens and sustainable design to reduce energy costs for residents. Many homes will also include private balconies with views of the canal below and the Manchester skyline.

Richard Cook, Lend Lease’s Head of Residential said: “We will be providing much-needed new housing which will go on sale to prospective homeowners in the North West in 2014.

“Potato Wharf has excellent transport links – including both road and rail – and its canal-side location will be popular with buyers.”

Lend Lease hasn't begun construction... they'll simply be finishing off what's already been started. Anyway, I'll be glad to see the back of the eyesore that is a concrete shell from my balcony view! THUMBUP

You can't start something you're already 40% of the way through. Surprisingly lazy reporting for Man Con though. Great news for the city and residents of Castlefield.

Pretty much a straight copy and paste from the press release is my guess. Still, it's good news for Castlefield and good news to see another of our skeletons getting re-started. Certainly encouraging.

Apologise for the cut and paste job. In a rush and all that. Our wrists are slapped and we won't do it again.

Is that a solemn promise never to sim ply print press releases ever again Jonathan?

Totally agreed about being overpriced, I plunked down £185,000 off-plan and I haven't even got any walls. Total ripoff.

Are you talking real money gimpboy? If so, why on earth do you troll around on this site?

GimboidNovember 21st 2013.

Jesus, it was a joke, based on the notion of an development that isn't built, never mind being for sale, being 'overpriced'. And what has it got to do with whether I read the site? Very strange.

you don't think it's fair to assume that the other half of potato wharf will be the same as the constructed side in terms of quality, price and location? if so then that still holds true.

GimboidNovember 22nd 2013.

IT. WAS. A. JOKE. But no, I don't think the same price and quality are presumable enough to call it overpriced.

Can you believe this Gimboid character? Shouting about his cash!!? Plunk away big spender.

GimboidNovember 22nd 2013.

I don't feel like a big spender, sat here with the wind blowing straight through the flat and tram passengers looking into my living room. No privacy at all. Rip off.
