McGoff brothers lead ground-breaking at Downtown

Signalling the start of construction at Downtown, the McGoff Group’s new flagship residential development, James, Declan, Dave and Chris McGoff hosted a ground breaking ceremony at the Woden Street site earlier this week.

The event was attended by more than 30 guests, including representatives from Manchester law firm Fieldfisher, AFL Architects, LRW Architects, Alliance and Wellesley Finance, the development property finance specialist that is providing the McGoff Group with a £39.9m funding facility to deliver the landmark scheme.

With its waterside location on the banks of the River Irwell, Downtown is an impressive project with a superior design that will not only transform the landscape on the border of Manchester and Salford, but it will also revolutionise the property market with its Manhattan-inspired hotel-style services and high end communal facilities.

Chris McGoff, director at the McGoff Group, comments: “The ground breaking ceremony at Downtown was a profound way to mark the start of build of this prestigious project. We are exceptionally proud of Downtown and the success we have already achieved on all levels, from acquiring such a prominent site and designing a truly inspirational apartment scheme to securing planning consent and selling more than 70% of the properties off-plan.

“Downtown is perhaps our most ambitious residential development to date and with construction now underway, we are very much looking forward to seeing this project take shape.”

Downtown will be built and block managed by the McGoff Group, including its award winning McGoff & Byrne Ltd principal contracting division and McGoff Group Facilities Services division, to ensure a truly ‘one stop shop’ approach to delivery and asset management from one of Manchester’s fastest growing entrepreneurial businesses.
