Progressive Living Developments has completed its £15m mixed-use development on Angel Street in Manchester, with residents taking possession of apartments and a new Co-op store opening on the ground floor.

North Central, which lies within the increasingly popular NOMA district, boasts 40 two-bed and 24 one-bed apartments, as well as a basement car park and a 3,500 sq ft retail unit which has been let to Co-op for its latest convenience store.

The 0.2 acre site was acquired by Manchester-based Progressive Living Developments in 2016 and gained planning consent in June 2017.

The contractor was Cruden Construction and the scheme was designed by Stockport architects Cartwright & Gross.

David Fairclough, a director at Progressive, said: “North Central is our first large scale regeneration project so we are delighted that it has fully sold and is coming to life.

“Our mission is to make strategic land acquisitions that give us the opportunity to regenerate areas through the creation of high-quality, sustainable and vibrant communities.

“The Angel Street site was previously a disused wines and spirits distribution warehouse and we are proud to have played a part in the development of the wider NOMA District.”

Progressive Living Developments has recently purchased Victoria House in Stockport with a view to redeveloping the site for residential use.
