Here’s the Urban Splash 12 days of Christmas; a run down of the best things that’ve happened to us this year. Pour some mulled wine, grab a mince pie and feast your eyes on what we’ve been up to…

August: It took just five working days from us making an offer to completing on our acquisition of Office Village in Salford Quays with our JV partner Pears. Now, we’re giving the building’s 46,000 sq of space a bit of a facelift.

September: Royal William Yard was named development of the decade by Property Week – recognition of the immense transformation of the former derelict Naval supplies site into hundreds of homes and workspaces.

October: We launched brand new homes for sale at Lakeshore in Bristol; with great living space in excess of 670 sq ft, a balcony and high ceilings too.

November: There was much excitement in North Shields as the first hoUSes arrived at Smith’s Dock ready for the first residents to move into early next year.

blog12_dec16_dec_stubbs

December: We let Stubbs Mill building in Manchester to sports brand Fanatics. The company moved its entire operations to the scheme.

So it’s been another awesome year..! Thanks for all the custom, support and love during 2016. Here’s to a great Christmas.
