WCN Editorial Team 13 May 2016 EUROPE BUILDINGS

UK-China joint venture FairBriar International has commenced work on the first phase of its £700M Middlewood Locks development near Manchester city centre.

The new mixed-use development will include about 2,000 new homes and over 70,000 sq m of commercial development space, involving offices, a hotel, shops, restaurants, a convenience store and a gym.

The first phase of the project, expected to be complete in 2018, will include the construction of 571 homes and associated commercial space, convenience shops, restaurants and a new public realm in the form of canal side footpaths and cycle ways that will be connected to the city centre.

Designed by WCEC Group, the project is located around three large basins of the Manchester, Bolton and Bury Canal in Salford and is expected to create over 7,000 jobs in the local region.

Scarborough development director Lee Savage said: "We are thrilled to be starting on site at last. It marks the culmination of many months of intensive preparation and allows the local communities to see for themselves some real progress.

"The whole team will be concentrating on delivering a development of which Salford and Greater Manchester can be truly proud.”
