Previously home to Manchester’s Hydes Brewery, the residential buy-to-let development - a 5260m² conversion project with part new-build - will comprise of 64 studios, 1, 2 and 3 bed apartments and is ideal for young professionals who want to be close to the city centre, yet desire to live in a building that is full of character and completely unique to anything else in the area.
Once complete, the residence will be comprised of luxurious apartments furnished to the highest of standards, in addition to providing private parking and bicycle storage for all residents, whilst retaining the unique architectural features which helped it earn its status as a Grade II listed building.
Due to its listed status, many of the original features and walls will be restored and within the original building, no two apartments will look the same. Distinct features that residents can expect to find include; barrel vaulted ceilings, large loft windows, duplex layouts and light wells, in addition to balconies and courtyard views; all of which combine to make TheQueen’s a stand-out development in an area of intense regeneration.
With a conversion value of approx. £8.5m, The Queen’s Brewery will be the 11th joint-venture development launched by Knight Knox International and Forshaw Land & Property Group, having previously enjoyed success with sites in Leeds, Bolton and Sheffield.
The launch of this development is demonstrative of a sector which is booming throughout the North West, as the level of construction in the region continues to rise and rental rates are expected to grow to 36% by 2018.
With HSBC recently naming Manchester as one of the UK’s ‘Top 4 Buy-to-Let Hotspots’, The Queen’s Brewery is in a prime location; being just 1.2 miles from Manchester city centre, in addition to Deansgate’s boutique shops and Oxford Road’s theatres and music venues.
The development is expected to be fully completed by Spring 2016 and apartments are now available to purchase through Knight Knox International, with studios starting at £73,500.
