Project Description

Cityheart has created a mixed-use retail scheme in Failsworth, Manchester and completed the construction of two adjoined retail units on Oldham Road in November 2014.

This project demonstrates Cityheart’s capability to identify land with a potential re-development opportunity; purchase the land at risk, and develop market interest in the scheme and locality; lead and manage the design and planning process and successfully appoint a contractor; gain planning consent and complete the project to the tenant’s exacting commercial requirements. Cityheart also sought interest from the financial markets and secured bank finance from NatWest Bank.

The completed scheme has enhanced this local area of Failsworth, as previously the former derelict pub had been left abandoned and as a result was providing social issues and was becoming a particularly challenging spot on the local high street.
