With the concrete frame complete at phase one of Downtown, the McGoff Group celebrated this key milestone in the construction programme with a topping out event on the roof of the Woden Street development. https://vimeo.com/280381634/c5e15ee766 Joining the McGoff brothers James, Declan, Dave and Chris was the team from Wellesley, the development property finance specialist that has provided £39.9m funding to deliver Downtown. Combining a successful construction schedule, with the build expertly executed and managed by multi award-winning McGoff Construction, and impressive sales with all 368 apartments sold, the build of phase two at Downtown will now start much earlier than planned. Occupancy of phase one, which comprises 160 apartments, is planned for March 2019, and the early commencement of construction on phase two, which comprises 208 apartments, will start imminently. Chris McGoff, director at the McGoff Group, says: “The success of Downtown has been superb both in terms of sales and construction and it was fitting to invite the team from Wellesley to the topping out event on the roof, giving them the chance to see the impressive progress made on site. “Their continued support means we can start the build of phase two immediately, which means completion will be approximately nine or 10 months sooner than expected. With all apartments sold, the excellent design and prominent site of Downtown on the banks of the River Irwell have delivered a truly prestigious riverside residential development.” Graham Wellesley, Founder and CEO at Wellesley, adds: “Downtown is a high-quality, aspirational apartment scheme and the impressive pace of sales fully supports this. Working with the McGoff Group on this project has been a pleasure and it was a privilege to attend the topping out event. “Since 2007 property developers have found it increasingly hard to secure funding from banks and building societies. As a specialist alternative lender, we work hard to fill this gap, providing flexible lending packages that meet their needs. “We also seek out opportunities across the UK, not just in London or the Home Counties, and Downtown is a wonderful example; a development with excellent design that will transform the landscape and revolutionise the Manchester property market with its Manhattan-inspired hotel-style services and high end communal facilities.” ...

The McGoff Group has officially topped out at Back to the Garden, its exciting new day nursery on Sinderland Road in Broadheath, Altrincham. The first five children signed up to attend when the nursery officially opens next week (Monday 13 August) and their parents joined local Councillors Sean Anstee and Kate Burke, the new employee team, industry guests, development funders Puma and the McGoff brothers for a first look around the new setting and to celebrate gaining Ofsted registration. The event was hosted by Stewart and Jeannie Pickering, the husband and wife team and experienced childcare duo formerly behind the kidsunlimited brand who have partnered with the McGoff Group on Back to the Garden and been instrumental in the development of the new concept. Offering a new approach to childcare, Back to the Garden is a child-led, active learning environment with an emphasis on outdoor play in a garden setting away from the pollution associated with being too close to main roads.  The brand has a deliberate focus on 'organic and natural' which runs through its entire offering from the children's menu choices to the toys and toiletries that have been selected. Much of the children's daily activity will centre on the nursery's outdoor space which features all-weather sand and water play areas, outdoor play equipment, a herb and planting patch and a magnificent tepee which will be used for storytelling, circle time and daily mindfulness, meditation and yoga sessions. Stewart Pickering said: "After many months of development, planning and build, we are delighted that our fabulous new setting is ready to welcome its first intake and I could not be more proud of Jeannie and the staff team who have worked extremely hard to get everything ready.  Interest in Back to the Garden has been exceptional and we have been showing parents around and signing children up on a daily basis." ...
