DESCRIPTION

After closure in 2014, the Manchester Metropolitan University’s Didsbury Campus was earmarked for a landmark scheme within the North West, with Manchester City Council having aspirations to retain affluent residents with the City boundaries.

P J Livesey were selected a preferred developer, and working collaboratively with both MMU and MCC we achieved planning for 45 converted properties in a range of listed buildings, together with 47 ‘superhomes’ designed by acclaimed architects Calderpeel. Designed specifically to cater for buyers spending £1m and above, every house is bespoke and features luxury features unheard of within the city region.

We are now halfway through the development, with the main listed Administration Building now complete. The original programme was set at three years, but we now anticipate the development will be completed within two years.
