Event Summary

Manchester is the fastest-growing city in the UK and has cemented itself as a thriving global destination. According to Deloitte’s 2018 Crane Survey over 62,557 SQ FT of retail and leisure space has been delivered representing a four-fold increase on the previous year, six office developments totalling 1.5 million SQ FT began construction, and over 11,000 residential units are under construction. If you doubted Manchester was a boom town, doubt it no more! BUT, if Manchester is to become the world digital city it hopes to be, there is still much to be done. Join us in March for our Manchester State of the Market 2019 where we will discuss designing, building and creating the Manchester of tomorrow. Share your comments, post your photos and ask questions using #BisnowEurope on Twitter and follow us at @BisnowEurope on Twitter for more local news.

1.) Can Manchester’s amazing couple of years continue? If not, will it be a smooth landing?
2.) Is the residential boom behind us? How about office and tech? Are these markets peaking or plateauing? 

3.) Who is going to build all of the new assets needed in the city from offices to warehouses to residential?
4.) How do we get placemaking just right? What is the secret sauce to creating a city where people want to live, work and play?

5.) What’s next for Manchester?  How do we combine business case and good design to continuously build and improve the city?
6) Does the city offer a sustainable retail mix? What retailers, restaurants and leisure companies are headed in and out in 2019?
