The North West 2020 Annual Survey £79 Million Manchester High Street Development Gets the Green Light

Manchester City Council’s planning committee has minded to grant full planning permission for the £79 million proposals for the regeneration of 20 – 36 High Street.

CEG submitted the planning application which is set to transform this gateway site between the High Street and Northern Quarter, replacing a predominantly vacant 1970s building, with a distinctly Mancunian building, drawing on Debenhams and Sunlight House for inspiration.

David Hodgson, Head of Strategic Development at CEG, explains: “This is an extremely challenging regeneration project on a constrained brownfield site.

Today’s resolution has provided the opportunity to transform this rundown building with a bold, confident and distinctly Mancunian building. We are pleased that the committee has acknowledged this and allows CEG to move forward.’

“CEG has managed investment into Manchester for many years, including the extensive renovation of the historic 196 Deansgate and is transforming Jackson House, now known as M33, in Sale and Altrincham Business Park. We look forward to continuing to work with the City Council to bring forward an exciting new development at High Street. Today’s planning committee process is just the first step in the journey to deliver much-needed regeneration of this key site.”

The planning application was prepared by Deloitte on behalf of CEG. Eve Grant, Director at Deloitte Real Estate, said: “With approval of the 20-36 High Street scheme, the city can look towards the delivery of a new landmark building that will create a more coherent link between Manchester’s iconic Northern Quarter and Retail core. Not only will this development positively transform the current look and feel of High Street, but it is set actively revitalise the local townscape whilst contributing to Manchester’s wider environmental, social and economic objectives.”

A new, larger reception entrance with additional formal meeting rooms, meeting booths, outdoor amenity space; basement level shower facilities and the installation of a new lift will also form a part of the new look Ducie House, with works expected to be completed by Summer 2020.
