Around 500 jobs will be created through the opening of a Manchester office by property developer Scarborough Group International.

The firm is behind the £30m Hot Box development, in the New Islington area of the city. It will see 144 new homes built.

The firm has also secured planning for its Middlewood Locks project, which will see 2,000 homes and a 750,000 sq ft mixed use scheme created.

The jobs being created include a construction team based on the Hat Box site, a sales team in a new show apartment, opening later this summer, as well as a wider team in its new Manchester office, in Castlefield.

Leading the residential sales team is Scarborough’s sales and marketing director Nicola Wallis. She said: “The Hat Box will provide 144 fantastic new homes adjacent to Milliners Wharf, in the popular residential area of New Islington, creating around 500 jobs for the local area.

“The apartments will be light, airy, and spacious, completed to a high specification and most will have a balcony or private terrace. The Hat Box will have excellent facilities including a sky garden, secure parking and bicycle stores and is ideally located close to the Metrolink and within walking distance of the city centre.

“We have been overwhelmed by the level of sales enquiries we have received to date and we are really looking forward to launching our new show apartment this summer when the apartments will be available for sale.”

Simon McCabe, managing director of Scarborough, said: “We are thrilled to be delivering this high-quality, residential scheme in one of the UK’s most vibrant, cosmopolitan and progressive cities. By launching a Scarborough office in Manchester and with a development pipeline of £700m, we’ve demonstrated our commitment to deliver new homes in a dynamic city where there is strong demand for good quality housing.”

The Hat Box is being developed by Scarborough and its joint-venture partners Top Spring International Holdings, a Hong Kong-listed real estate developer in China, and Metro Holdings, a Singapore-listed property development and investment group. Together the group has formed a JV company called Fair Briar International.
