Farrells has been commissioned to draw up a £1 billion masterplan for the Northern Gateway scheme in Manchester, which will create more than 10,000 new homes
Backed by the Far East Consortium, the major development will be built on a 120ha site to the north of Victoria station, running through the Lower Irk Valley, New Cross and Collyhurst. It is set to be complete within a decade.
Farrells founder Terry Farrell said: ‘Through its sheer scale and its incredible natural, heritage and community assets, the Northern Gateway will play a significant part in enhancing Manchester’s presence nationally and globally. We will be making an amazing new place where people love to be, so watch this space.’
Also appointed on the Northern Gateway team are Arup, landscape architect Planit IE, and planning consultancy HOW.
