MAJOR DEVELOPMENT PLANS – PRESENTATIONS:

Once the scene has been set and the discussions on key areas of focus have taken place we’ll then set about finding out what projects link into the economic growth agenda for Greater Manchester. Over 15 private sector developers/investors and several key public sector authorities and organisations will deliver a presentation – followed by Q&A – on the incredible schemes which are both ongoing or proposed for the future which will drive the creation of jobs, homes, opportunities and growth. From major new commercial schemes to innovative developments we’ll hear presentations focused on three key areas; Major Development Plans, Major Infrastructure Plans and Major Residential Plans. Some of the presentations will include:

  • CEG have some major projects planned for the region including a 22-storey development in the heart of Manchester opposite the Arndale Centre.
  • U+I are behind the exciting Mayfield development which will see a high quality urban neighbourhood being created. They’re breathing new life into the 24-acre derelict site, formerly a railway station. The £1.1bn mixed-use community scheme will create over 10,000 jobs, 6.5-acres of public park within the City Centre, over 1,350 new homes and much more!
  • Manchester Airport are looking to grab the opportunities of the Northern Powerhouse discussion and the investment interest in Greater Manchester and the arrival of HS2 to the Airport will be an additional catalyst for growth.
