Back in December, About Manchester were invited into our office to interview Beech Holdings’ Owner and Property Entrepreneur, Stephen Beech.
With an overview on the Manchester city centre property market and our upcoming developments, Stephen Beech gives some great insight into what’s coming up on the Manchester property scene and where the best places are in Manchester to launch a development.
Beech Holdings are on track to complete four new developments in 2020, which will be available to let via our sister company Manchester Apartments. One of these new developments is situated opposite University Academy 92 (UA92), a new university located in Old Trafford. Academy Apartments benefits from high specification design, fittings and space-saving design elements. Manchester Apartments and Beech Holdings are working closely with Trafford Council on the project. Academy Apartments is being developed on the back of the great success of Westpoint, also in Old Trafford, and area that the company sees becoming an extension of the city centre. Westpoint consists of 317 apartments and is rented to students and professionals in Manchester. With shared social spaces, tenant events and an on-site gym, Westpoint is focused on building a community, ensuring that tenants get the most out of their time with Manchester Apartments.
Beech Holdings’ latest central Manchester developments include 115 Princess Street and Waterloo Street as well as their development on Great Ancoats Street which comprises of 43 studio and one-bedroom apartments. Thanks to the growing popularity of Ancoats, Great Ancoats Street will be in high demand from both professionals and students in Manchester. Historically Ancoats was the thriving centre of the county’s cotton industry, with the architecture cementing the area’s industrious past. Today, Ancoats is the city centre neighbourhood that every twenty-something wants to live in, and it was recently hailed as Time Out Magazine’s 13th coolest neighbourhood in the world.
