Apartments planned for former BBC site
Plans have been announced for 677 apartments to be built on the former BBC site in Manchester.

The site, on Oxford Road, has been empty since 2012 when the BBC moved to Salford.

The project is being funded by a £36m special purpose vehicle from the Greater Manchester Housing Fund, taking the total invested in development projects across the region by the fund to £305m.

The fund will also invest £43m to Urban & Civic for 351 apartments at the junction of Princess Street and Whitworth Street in central Manchester, £22.5m to FICM for 380 apartments at the corner of Blackfriars Road and Trinity Road in Salford and £3.9m to Hillcrest Homes for 24 houses on the site of the Brethrens Hall in Heaton Mersey, Stockport.

 Cllr Richard Farnell, Greater Manchester Combined Authority lead member for Planning and Housing, said: “Reaching over £300m of housing investment represents a major milestone for Greater Manchester.  The Greater Manchester Housing Fund is a key part of our historic devolution deal and we are proud of the success we’ve had in supporting the creation of thousands of new homes across the city-region since 2014.

“The Housing Fund has allowed local leaders to kick-start construction and support developers in the creation of new, quality housing that our residents want and economy needs.”
