Make Yourself at Home at The Barrel Yard
15th June 2018
Residents are now moving into the “Barrel Yard” our new-build residential scheme located minutes from Manchester City Centre. The apartments and town homes are proving popular with young professionals and families with its perfect location and close proximity to Deansgate’s boutique shops and Oxford Road’s theatres and music venues.
The Barrel Yard, a new build scheme completes the second phase of the regeneration project for The Queen’s brewery area. An historic Grade II Listed building which became a landmark of the city and served as the headquarters for legendary Manchester brewers Hydes for over 100 years. The Queen’s Brewery sadly closed its doors for the final time in 2012, leaving this beautiful period building to stand empty and abandoned… that’s until Forshaw saw the opportunity and purchased the site !
Fast-forward a couple of years and a new generation is now set to be exposed to the former courtyard and romantic clock tower which marks the former Victorian brewery’s history, as new life is breathed into the buildings. Phase 1, a refined conversion which has seen the existing buildings transformed into high quality award-winning residential accommodation and which is now complemented with the new build town homes and apartments of phase 2.
This regeneration project has dramatically improved the housing in the area, which has proven very popular making it a much more attractive place to live. As the level of construction activity in Manchester continues to rise, so do the opportunities for buy-to-let investors to acquire property in prime sites where demand is high, which will yield strong returns for years to come.
