Urban Splash Newsplash - November 2018
Welcome to our November edition of Newsplash - a monthly round-up of all things Urban Splash, featuring new homes, scheme launches, commercial news and much more.
This month, we've got updates on our "It Will Never Work" exhibition, the next phase of Town House at New Islington, as well as our partnership with Property Alliance Group at Irwell Riverside. We welcome a raft of new commercial tenants to our schemes in Liverpool and Manchester and also give you the opportunity to own your very own three-storey home at Port Loop in Birmingham.
Save the date – on 08 November Mayor Andy Burnham will help us launch our US25 exhibition in Manchester
Mayor Andy Burnham’s joining us to launch our 25th anniversary exhibition in Manchester on 8 November; the two-week long show exhibits some of the city’s best loved buildings in the context they were created, and distilling the attitude and values that made them possible. We’re after-partying at MIF’S Bugzy Malone show too.
New homes! Town Houses at New Islington
We’re creating 33 new Town Houses at New Islington - Manchester’s most exciting new neighbourhood. These three-storey canalside family homes each come with parking, a garden and will be designed and customised by purchasers, before being constructed in our factory and ready to move into next year. Join the waiting list now.
