22nd August 2023 | Jack Oliver

Regeneration work has begun at the former Boddingtons Brewery site in Manchester which will see the creation of a £195m mixed-use scheme.

The site is set to house 31,000 sq ft of commercial and retail space alongside 556 new homes.

A ‘clubhouse’ for residents will also be available, featuring swimming pools, squash and basketball courts, lounges and games rooms, private dining space, a cinema room, and meeting rooms and workspaces.

The scheme, named Waterhouse Gardens, is being brought forward by developer Salboy and construction partner DOMIS, is expected to be completed in the second quarter of 2026.

The brewery site was closed in 2005, and was acquired by Salboy in December of last year with the intention to create a mixed-use scheme.

Simon Ismail, co-founder of Salboy, said: “Waterhouse Gardens will be a residential-led mixed use regeneration project that pays close attention to creating an appealing landscaped environment where young people buy and rent their homes, as well as study, begin or progress their careers and socialise, all within easy reach of Manchester’s vibrant city centre.”

Salboy is being advised by Graham + Sibbald regarding the commercial space within Waterhouse Gardens.
