Award Winning Queen’s Brewery
3rd November 2016
We’re absolutely delighted to be the recipient of the 2016 International Property Awards for the “Best Residential Development in Manchester” and a ‘Highly Commended’ award in the UK Residential Renovation/Redevelopment category for our development at The Queen’s Brewery, the conversion of the former Hyde’s Brewery premises, a Grade II listed Victorian building constructed in 1861. Now forming 73 stunning apartments, the outstanding quality of the development was recognised by the Judging Panel as being amongst the best in the UK, a real achievement for the team at Forshaw.
Jason Sanderson, Development Manager for Forshaw said “The International Property Awards attracts entries from some of the largest and most prestigious projects and developers across the Country. It’s an absolute honour to have our hard work recognised by these awards. We were clear from the outset that we wanted to create a real landmark development at Queen’s Brewery and to have this supported by experienced and respected judges is both a welcome and appreciated recognition of our standards and approach to our projects.”
