Mayor of Bolton Officially Opens Trinity Court

Friday 14th November 2014 marked the official opening of Trinity Court, an incredible restoration project of a once-derelict Grade II listed church in the heart of Bolton. Knight Knox International, in partnership with Forshaw Land and Property Group, saw the potential of the church from the outset, and embarked on a joint venture to restore this development to its former glory.

Mayor of Bolton Officially Opens Trinity Court

Trinity Court is a stunning mix of old and new—an original and bespoke selection of modern and cosmopolitan flats housed in the shell of an incredible period church. While protecting its period features and stunning architecture, developers Forshaw regenerated the interior into 82 beautiful studio apartments, each maintaining its original period features. The exposed brickwork, stained glass windows and even the original clock tower retained from the period building rub shoulders with the new: high-spec luxury fixtures and fittings, modern layouts and even a brand new bespoke modern building affixed to the back of the church. Period features are plentiful in Trinity Court, even after the multi-million-pound renovation scheme, so that the development can retain its charm, yet at the same time still boast modern bespoke living.

Its location in the heart of Bolton, the largest town in Greater Manchester without city status, is perfect for tenants seeking close proximity to local amenities, yet is also close enough to enjoy everything that the nearby Manchester City Centre has to offer. Trinity Court is a one-of-a-kind development, and is a true testament to the level of investment, development and regeneration for which the Greater Manchester region is now gaining a reputation.

Such was the magnitude of Trinity Court’s renovation that its official opening generated interest from local press, was attended by a selection of invitees (including contactors, delegates from both Forshaw Land and Property Group and Knight Knox International, as well as other invited guests) and was officially opened by the Mayor of Bolton, Martin Donaghy. Mayor Donaghy was particularly enamoured with the development’s aesthetic uniqueness, saying in his speech: “What you have done is you’ve returned this building to its splendour and its glory, both inside and outside. You have lifted the profile of the building, and it is now a very pleasing aspect to look at”. Furthermore, he praised Trinity Court for enhancing the area, as the development’s immediate proximity to Trinity Street train station means that it attracts people’s immediate attention: “When you get off the train, you think, ‘well if this is what’s going on in Bolton, I want to see more of this town’”, before cutting the ribbon to unveil a commemorative plaque celebrating Trinity Court’s official opening. The glowing recommendations from Bolton’s Mayor were similarly reflected by all the attendees at the event, who each in turn praised the stunning external architecture, the bright and airy open-plan external corridors which led to equally bright and spacious studio apartments, and of course the iconic and beautiful period features that enhance the beauty of the development.

Interest has been piqued by this development already, with potential tenants recognising the beauty and charm of Trinity Court, so much so that some apartments are already tenanted. The fact that this development is already tenanted ahead of its official opening proves the high demand for prime accommodation in the up-and-coming area of Bolton. Trinity Court’s open day, much like the development itself, was a unanimous success.
