Second Time Lucky: Delancey's £1B Manchester Residential Punt
The £200M second deal could open the door to acquiring later phases of the development, which has a total end value of £1B. The development is currently a joint venture between Scarborough, Hualing Group and Metro Holdings.
In 2012 Delancey was selected as preferred developer of NOMA in association with Landid. But a development agreement was never finalised and in 2014 they were replaced by the site's then-owners Co-Op Group. Hermes became the Co-Op's partner.
Get Living — a partnership between Qatari Diar, wholly owned by the Qatar Investment Authority, APG Asset Management and Delancey — has more than 6,000 homes under management or in the pipeline across the U.K., including sites at the former Olympic Park and in Elephant and Castle in London, Glasgow and Leeds.
The arrival of Delancey in the Manchester residential scene is sure to shake up the sector, and comes as other national players vie to secure places in a crowded Manchester market.
