Ahead of the Manchester Build To Rent Boom event on 6 September, Bisnow decided to find out.

Good property development ideas come in two varieties: those that can be delivered, and those that can't. The trouble is that in rising — giddy even — markets, telling the difference between them can be hard. Late last month Manchester…
