Allied London has confirmed its construction partners to deliver the ambitious £1bn high-rise St John’s scheme in Manchester.

As tipped in the Enquirer, Lendlease is on board to focus on the new-build element of the 6 acre St John’s masterplan, while McLaren Construction will act as refurbishment delivery partner.

Enabling works will start in the next few weeks to prepare the way for Lendlease to start work on a landmark 52-storey tower of private flats and the Globe & Simpson work space building located next to it.

The slender residential block, designed by SimpsonHaugh & Partners, will also contain a Nadler Hotel, and restaurant.

Lendlease will also later build two further towers, the 36-storey Nickel and Dime buildings. Designed by Denton Corker Marshall, these include 610 apartments.

Once built, the St John’s neighbourhood will include 3,000 homes, 600,000 sq ft of commercial space and a mix of cultural venues.

Elsewhere on the site, strip out works are also now underway at the former Astley & Byrom Bonded Warehouse where the cluster of three 1960s buildings will be transformed into a home for film, TV, media and tech companies in the city centre.

Grant Jarvie, Managing Director of St. John’s, said: “Over the past 12 months we have assembled a fully integrated and committed St Johns construction delivery team to work together collaboratively to deliver the brand and the vision for St Johns.

“To supplement our existing and highly capable in-house construction team we have engaged Lendlease Construction as a significant component within the team, focusing on the new-build and masterplan elements due to their extensive residential and urban regeneration expertise, and McLaren Construction as refurbishment delivery partner due to their extensive experience in cut-and-carve projects.

“The combined experience and expertise of the St Johns construction delivery team will provide world-class delivery of the overall St Johns masterplan to industry-leading environmental and welfare standards.”

Allied London has also revealed plans for a new concept building at the site referred to as Enterprise City Campus – a 500,000 sq ft series of buildings being lined up as a tech and media hub.

The building, if developed, would be an extension of Enterprise City, adjacent to the new Factory Arts Centre, and replace a part of the Trinity Islands development.
