Steel signing ceremony celebrated at Cavendish Property Developments’ £8m Summers Quay scheme

A key milestone at the Summers Quay development in Stalybridge, east Manchester was reached this week (28th July) when local MP for Stalybridge and Hyde Jonathan Reynolds was invited to take part in a steel signing ceremony.

Summers Quay is a private “build to rent” regeneration development of 67 new homes in the centre of Stalybridge and is the first, and largest, private rented development to be undertaken by housing provider New Charter Group, through its commercial property arm, Cavendish Property Developments.

The steel signing, held to celebrate the final beam of the steel frame for the structure being put into place, was hosted by Cavendish Property Developments / New Charter Group and Rowlinsons Construction.

Speaking at the ceremony Jonathan Reynolds MP said:

“It’s an honour to be involved in marking this milestone in the Summers Quay development. Quality, private rented housing in Stalybridge is much needed and I’m pleased that Cavendish Property Developments / New Charter Group is paving the way to create a new market for this type of luxury accommodation.”

Tony Powell, Deputy Chief Executive at New Charter Group said,

“Our private development arm Cavendish Property Developments has created a fantastic scheme here and we’re grateful to Jonathan Reynolds MP for helping us mark this milestone in what is its first ‘build to rent’ development.

“This is also an opportunity to thank our contractor Rowlinson and our professional team who have worked hard to bring this scheme to fruition. The design, undertaken by Pozzoni, and the construction are outstanding and we’re grateful to have the opportunity to contribute to the mix of housing types available in Stalybridge. We’re creating a statement building here in Stalybridge and also contributing to what is a relatively new market for luxury private rental accommodation.”

Located at Armentieres Square in the centre of Stalybridge in Tameside, east Manchester, Summers Quay consists of 22 one bedroom and 45 two bedroom apartments as well as 244 sq m of commercial and retail space.

The scheme started on site in August 2016 with completion planned for spring 2018 and is viewed as the next best thing in city centre lifestyle renting, offering canal-side, urban living within a sub-urban setting.

Cavendish Property Developments was set up by New Charter Group in 2013 to carry out private rent, shared ownership and rent to buy and for sale residential development projects. Summer Quay is being delivered in partnership with Rowlinson Construction and Tameside Metropolitan Borough Council.
