Ahead of the sales launch of its £30m Hat Box scheme in Manchester next month, Scarborough Group International has opened a new office in the city.
The company’s arrival will help to create around 500 new jobs in the local area to assist with the development and sales of the 144 new homes in the Hat Box development, which is located in New Islington. The jobs being created include a construction team based on site at New Islington, a sales team based in the new show apartment which is opening later this summer in addition to the team already based in the new Manchester office in Castlefield.
Leading the Residential sales team is Scarborough’s Sales and Marketing Director Nicola Wallis. She joined the company last year in preparation for the sales and marketing of Scarborough Group’s pipeline of over 2000 new homes in the city and said: ‘The Hat Box will provide 144 fantastic new homes adjacent to Milliners Wharf, in the popular residential area of New Islington, creating around 500 jobs for the local area.
“The apartments will be light, airy, and spacious, completed to a high specification and most will have a balcony or private terrace. The Hat Box will have excellent facilities including a sky garden, secure parking and bicycle stores and is ideally located close to the Metrolink and within walking distance of the city centre.
“We have been overwhelmed by the level of sales enquiries we have received to date and we are really looking forward to launching our new show apartment this summer when the apartments will be available for sale.’
Added Simon McCabe, Managing Director of Scarborough Group International: “We are thrilled to be delivering this high-quality, residential scheme in one of the UK’s most vibrant, cosmopolitan and progressive cities.
"By launching a Scarborough office in Manchester and with a development pipeline of £700m, we’ve demonstrated our commitment to deliver new homes in a dynamic city where there is strong demand for good quality housing.”
The Hat Box is being developed by Scarborough and its JV partners Top Spring International Holdings Ltd, a Hong Kong-listed real estate developer in China, and Metro Holdings Ltd, a Singapore-listed property development and investment group. Together the group has formed a JV company called Fair Briar International.
