WCN Editorial Team 9 Jun 2016 EUROPE BUILDINGS

Plans have been submitted to Salford City Council for the second phase of the mixed-use property development MediaCityUK in Manchester.

Phase two of MediaCityUK will feature 50,000sq m of offices, 1,800 apartments, retail and leisure space and a pedestrian promenade, which will run through the development. Entailing an investment of over £1bn, this phase of the project will also involve the construction of up to ten new buildings.

Salford’s planning panel is expected to consider the plans in September.

Peel Group CEO Steven Underwood said: “This application is another major step forward in the evolution of MediaCityUK.

“Our partnership with Legal and General Capital, alongside continued support from the public sector, provides a strong platform to deliver future development phases of the UK’s fastest growing hub for the creative and digital industries.

“MediaCityUK is a shining example of what can be achieved across the Northern Powerhouse, combining the talents of great people with ambition and vision.”

MediaCityUK is a joint venture between Peel Land & Property and Legal & General Capital.
