Forrest has been appointed to deliver a £28.2m residential development in Manchester’s Northern Quarter, known as ‘CituNQ’ on behalf of Tibst Ltd, a joint venture between Factory Estates Ltd and Salboy Ltd.

Designed by architects IDP and project managed by Artal, the nine storey development will consist of 183 one and two bedroom apartments with luxury penthouses. The scheme will also feature ground-floor commercial units, rooftop gardens, internal courtyard and 24/7 concierge service.

The site of CituNQ is the former NCP level car park bounded by Tib Street, Church Street, Joiner Street and Bridgewater Place. Planning approval was received in February and Forrest will start on site imminently.

The scheme follows Forrest’s work in delivering M-One Central for Factory Estates, a new build high rise development on Great Ancoats Street, which is scheduled to complete this autumn.

Allan Smith, Project Director at Forrest said, “This exclusive development, sat within the Smithfield conservation area, will sensitively continue the regeneration of the vibrant Northern Quarter.”

Chris Bowman, Managing Director at Factory Estates Ltd said, “We are delighted to be starting work on this prominent prime residential development site in the heart of the Northern Quarter. The final scheme, due in early 2019, will be an exciting new addition to this part of the City including over 14500sqft of retail and leisure premises and 183 luxury apartments”.
