Event Summary

According to Deloitte's 2018 Manchester Crane Survey, 11,135 residential units are under construction in the city centre, up 4,172 on 2017. Build to rent products dominate the supply under construction and offer the prospect to bridge the historic undersupply of residential developments. The clear demand is evidenced by the growth of the City Centre ward population, which grew by 33% from 17,861 to 23,8251 between 2011 and 2016, despite only 2,525 residential units being delivered. Exciting installments such as the arrival of HS2, a growing student population currently at 60,000, plus an emergent and diversifying regional economy has primed Manchester as a place people should want to live. Can the city capitalize and deliver on these opportunities? Find out this and more at The Manchester Build to Rent Boom! as we bring the city’s most prominent CRE professionals to discuss major trends and issues facing the market today.

1. As the availability of land in Manchester’s city centre dwindles, sensitivity about the land that remains increases. How do we preserve historic buildings and community landmarks while reshaping the city in a positive way?

2. Is Manchester in danger of seeing the dark, unoccupied but investor-owned blocks that blight London and help fuel the affordable housing problem?

3. The U.K.’s first purpose-built co-living scheme is coming to Manchester. Will this aid in providing more affordable housing and attract a younger generation of renters to the city? How can we ensure these potential renters are here to stay?

4. The arrival of HS2 at Manchester Piccadilly is a once-in-a-century chance to rethink the north’s major transport hub and create a new focus for the city residential sector, according to the city council. Could Piccadilly be a second Spinningfields?

5. Overseas investors are leading the push into the BTR sector. Is Manchester too dependent on foreign investors?
