McGoff Group acquires Manchester site for new BTR scheme

McGoff Group has purchased over one acre of land in Manchester from Peter Read Investments for its new BTR development.

The scheme — which received planning consent from Manchester City Council earlier this year — will comprise 237 units housed within three new buildings, incorporating a mix of apartments and duplex townhouses, some with balconies, garages and gardens.

Basement parking will be provided with 35 car parking spaces, as well as a cycle store.

The development will benefit from extensive landscaping, including a communal garden courtyard, pocket square and private gardens.  

It will also offer a reception with spacious seating area and business centre.

The group plans to start working on site later this year, with McGoff Construction as the principal contractor.

The development will be part of the group’s ‘Downtown’ brand and builds on the success of the now completed 374-unit Downtown scheme on Woden Street in Salford.

Chris McGoff, director at McGoff Group, said: “The site on Rochdale Road is superb and ideally suits a sophisticated BTR scheme.  

“The group’s proven ability to acquire, design, build, operate and maintain residential developments ensures the future success of this scheme.  

“Having enjoyed unprecedented success at Downtown, and following the launch of Downtown Asset Management, we have established strong working relationships with both institutions and individual landlords, and are perfectly placed to embark upon a new BTR scheme in the city.”

Dave McGoff, director at McGoff Group, added: “Our approach to controlling every aspect of delivery from planning management, site acquisition, design, construction procurement and asset management not only de-risks project delivery from a build point of view, but also adds protection via the inherent early stage and legacy control we have, making us a perfect counter party for funders and institutional investors.
“In addition, our skill sets across residential development, as well as care home and childcare operation, ensure we are the ideal joint venture partner across a broad range of sectors.”
