Latest phase of Smithfield development tops out

Muse has celebrated reaching the highest point in the construction of the sixth phase of development at the award-winning Smithfield regeneration scheme, in the heart of Manchester’s Northern Quarter.

Representatives from contractor Galliford Try, GRE Assets, Manchester City Council and Ryder Architects joined Muse on site to celebrate the milestone.

The ten-storey building, known as One Smithfield Square, comprises 77 one, two and three bedroom apartments and 6,000 sq ft of ground floor commercial space.

All of the apartments were forward sold to GRE in an investment deal in December 2013.

Wes Erlam, senior development surveyor at Muse Developments, said: “Smithfield has been an extremely successful development, delivering more than 300 apartments and two hotels, as well as commercial space, over the past 13 years. One Smithfield Square is building on that success, providing 77 contemporary, high quality apartments in an excellent city centre location.”

One Smithfield Square is due to be completed in October 2014.
