Ask Real Estate’s Latest Scheme Given Green Light Posted on: April 17th, 2020 Ask Real Estate’s regeneration of First Street in Manchester continues, as they receive approval for their latest scheme – a 400,000 sq ft office scheme set on a 2-acre city centre site. The 11-storey development will include retail space on the ground floor – with the primary use for office space. Ask Real Estate – who’re speaking on one of our latest Webinars – have chosen BAM Construction to deliver the build. The scheme was approved by a three-person team as planning powers have recently been handed over for the next 8 months during the Covid-19 outbreak. The team includes Manchester City Council’s Chief Executive Joanne Roney alongside Cllr Nasim Ali and Cllr Basil Curley. The wider vision for First Street will see a new business destination.
