Manchester City Council (the Council), in consultation with Network Rail and the Homes and Communities Agency, is seeking an investment partner or consortium (including lead developer, full professional team and funder) capable of ensuring the delivery of its ambitious plan to regenerate Collyhurst and the Lower Irk Valley in Manchester.Manchester is the commercial, economic and cultural centre of the North West of England and has over the past 15 years undergone a huge transformational change in terms of new regeneration and development, in particular in the city centre.

The Collyhurst and the Lower Irk Valley site measures 135 hectares and includes a large number of development opportunities owned by the Council and Network Rail which provide significant potential to redefine a large and under utilised area to meet the city’s economic objectives for future growth.

The area has benefited from a very significant pipeline of committed investment that will completely reposition the northern part of the city centre, ensuring that it plays a key role in the future success of the City Region economy.

Initiatives currently being driven forward in the area at Strangeways, Greengate, Victoria Station and NOMA (the Co-Op estate) will, over the next ten to fifteen years, transform this part of the city creating new office space, new public space, new retail development and new homes.

The vision for Collyhurst and the Lower Irk Valley over the next 10-15 years is to create a sustainable, low carbon community that will provide over 2,000 new homes, the refurbishment of over 1000 existing properties, improved retail and public services provision, new employment opportunities, enhanced transport and pedestrian routes together with open space and local environment improvements. The redevelopment is also expected to contribute to the city’s aspiration to become a world top 20 digital city by 2020.

The ambition is that the area becomes an attractive place to live and raise a family, with easy access to a range of services where residents can continue to benefit from the prosperity and jobs being created in the City Region.

The Council, in consultation with Network Rail and the Homes and Communities Agency, is seeking an experienced investment partner or consortium who can share such a commitment and vision for this part of the city to make the most of the site’s potential and to deliver a high quality development.
