BALLYMORE APPOINTS CBRE TO SELL PICCADILLY CENTRAL
Manchester’s Largest Residential Development Opportunity Hits Market
Ballymore has appointed CBRE’s Manchester Land and Development team to sell Piccadilly Central, Manchester’s largest residential development opportunity site with planning secured for some 650 apartments and a landmark 60 storey tower adjacent to the proposed HS2 Terminal.
Piccadilly Central is a 3 acre site located on Store Street adjacent to Piccadilly Train Station and the intended HS2 entrance. Planning permission has been secured for the tallest tower in Manchester which, at 60 storeys, could accommodate 430 apartments. An additional two towers of six and 16 storeys will facilitate an additional 217 residential units and consent has also been granted for a 220 bed hotel, a public multi-storey car park, associated retail and leisure uses along with public open space.
In addition to being the City’s largest residential opportunity site to accommodate the tallest tower, it is also one of the largest mixed-use development opportunities in the City.
Piccadilly Central is without doubt one of the most prime, high-profile sites on the market within the region. Even without taking into account the HS2 hub which will be on the doorstep, the site is already one of the most strategic in the city as it is adjacent to one of the North’s busiest transport interchanges, Piccadilly Station. We anticipate high levels of interest in this unprecedented opportunity.
