Developers appointed for Manchester shopping centre regeneration

29th March 2023 | Jack Oliver

P J Livesey has been appointed by the Greater Manchester Pension Fund to rejuvenate a 3.2 acre shopping centre site in South Manchester.

The site comprises of Chorlton Shopping Centre, a 200 space car park, and Graeme House, a government building.

P J Livesey says it is aiming to create a thriving and sustainable neighbourhood which “captures the spirit” of Chorlton. The development will look to create a mixture of new housing and shops along with public spaces and cycle routes.

Public consultation will begin later this year with existing retailers trading as normal in the meantime.

P J Livesey development director James Woodmansee said: “We want [the development] to be the centrepiece of the neighbourhood, a place where people come to shop, to meet and to live, with a range of high quality housing available to meet all needs.”

Gareth Conroy of Avison Young, property managers to The Greater Manchester Pension Fund, added: “Sustainability will be a focus of the project and we look forward to evolving the existing development framework to create something special which has a positive impact on Chorlton.

“The project is further evidence of GMPF’s continued investment within Greater Manchester, helping to stimulate the local economy whilst at the same time delivering much needed new homes.”
