PRS firm LIV Group has been appointed as management partner on the £700m Middlewood Locks scheme.
Developer Scarborough Group has appointed LIV Group to manage the leasing and operation of the project’s residential estate, with the first phase of 571 homes due to complete at the end of 2017.
LIV, which is based in Leeds and Manchester, has worked alongside Scarborough for two years to plan design and operational delivery of the residential estate.
The development will deliver 2,215 private rented homes just outside Manchester City Centre, alongside more than 750,000 sq ft of commercial space, including offices, a hotel and retail space.
Chinese contractor Beijing Construction and Engineering Group (BCEG) started on site at the project in May, having been appointed in 2015. The project is being developed by FairBriar International, a joint venture between Scarborough, Chinese firm Hualing Group and Metro Holdings Limited, a Singapore-listed property development and investment group.
