HALO – Completed

It’s now 6 months since we celebrated completion on our latest residential scheme in Ancoats. 66 apartments in a prime part of Manchester, the scheme sold out well ahead of construction allowing ample time for investors to enjoy some growth in value whilst the build completed.

Whilst most are occupied by the owners there are a small number that were purchased by investors and are periodically available through our sister company so if you like what you see then be sure to register with them to get your chance to live in one of the best apartment buildings that this part of Manchester has to offer.

September 2019, Worrall St Construction Update

It’s been a busy summer since the existing building has been demolished and the land where  The Waterhouse will eventually stand.  

Since the last update, we’ve turned the entire site over to ensure that there are no obstructions in the soil. Our remediation contractor (Forshaw Demolition) has then compacted the soil in layers ensuring that the ground is ready to receive and support our building. Our main contractor has taken possession of the site and the piling rig is there now driving the concrete piles deep into the ground, these will be what the building stands upon when construction is completed, the cabins are in place and the perimeter fencing to the road is now up too.

There is a couple of weeks piling ahead of us before we can start pouring concrete, which will be the next update.
