Alliance - Where to buy in Manchester
Downtown nears completion

With Downtown’s Phase 1 nearing completion and Phase 2’s concrete frame completed, the McGoff Group hosted the topping out ceremony for our partnership development.

The topping out ceremony gave everyone a chance to see just how far the development has come along in its construction, and to give recognition to those who have worked so hard to make it a success.

The event was attended by the McGoff brothers, James, Declan, Dave and Chris, Heyrods Construction team, and members of the Alliance Investments team.

Located on the banks of the River Irwell, Downtown comprises of 368 Manhattan-inspired luxury apartments. The development features premium resident services including an onsite gym, swimming pool, spa, media room, private dining space and rooftop terraces. Upon completion, Downtown will be a truly enviable location to live in, with excellent access to Manchester city centre.

Chris McGoff, Director of the McGoff group, said of Downtown:

“The collaboration between McGoff Construction, Heyrods, Alliance and Wellesley has been incredible.  Developing this bespoke partnership has enabled us to take advantage of Downtown impressive sales success and start build of Phase II two much earlier than planned.

“As we near the end of construction at Downtown, and reflect on its success, we can safely say that our collaboration was a truly unique and refreshing way to work in the construction industry.

“With all apartments selling quickly, the majority off-plan, the McGoff Construction team was agile with regards to the build programme, fully supported by Heyrods, which not only saved money but also allowed us to accelerate the build of Phase II without the need to negotiate based on better than envisaged sales.

“With such a solid partnership in place, and the results to prove it, Wellesley was happy to adapt and release funds for Phase II early.  It really has been a success story with regards to both sales and construction on site.”

Matt Jay, Managing Partner at Alliance Investments added:

“We are thrilled to have worked on this fantastic development in partnership with McGoff Group, and it is brilliant to have reached such a key stage in the build process.

All of our investors are incredibly excited and continue to track progress through our construction updates. Following completion, Downtown will be a fantastic addition to Manchester’s evolving skyline, and provide an exceptional living experience for Manchester’s ever increasing market of renters.

We look forward to a continuation of our successful partnership with McGoff Group on future projects across the UK.”
