Lendlease to start Manchester Potato Wharf phase 2

Lendlease is set to start work on phase two of Manchester’s Potato Wharf scheme in the Castlefield area.

The final phase of 191 private rental flats at the canal-side scheme follows on from two earlier blocks completed in 2015.

Lendlease will build two more eight-storey blocks with flats available to move into by late 2021.

Blocks three and four will be linked by a two-storey building containing a gym and lounge area.

Works planned for the coming months include the replacement of hoardings and beginning piling.

The canal-side development has been designed by Birmingham-based Weedon Architects, helped by mechanical and electrical engineers, Hulley & Kirkwood.

It is close to the shops and restaurants of Spinningfields, and just a short walk from the city centre, but is also surrounded by an abundance of green space.

Justin Davies, Head of Residential for Lendlease, Europe, said: “Potato Wharf is a fantastic place to live and we are very proud to be part of the community. Given the popularity of the first phase of development, I am confident that our new homes will also be very well received.”

Over the last 12 months in Manchester, Lendlease has also secured a coveted contract to refurbish and partially restore Manchester’s Grade-1 listed town hall.
