Here’s a small selection of what people have said about us.
  • Capital & Centric has revealed plans for a £50m residential scheme in central Manchester.

    The developer has submitted a planning application to convert a grade II listed mill complex near Piccadilly station into a residential scheme providing 201 one, two and three bed apartments.

    The cluster of buildings is situated on Fair Street, Chapeltown Street, Congou Street and Baird Street around a central courtyard area.

    The proposed scheme – known as Crusader Works – was designed by Shedkm and will provide 126 apartments in the existing mill and a further 75 apartments in an adjacent 10 storey building.

    Adam Higgins, co-founder of Capital & Centric, said: “Crusader Works is one of Manchester’s forgotten treasures and has been neglected for too long.

    “Our unique design led scheme will see the sensitive restoration of the mill using creative conservation designs to provide efficient and attractive living spaces and ensure the long term sustainability of the listed buildings.”

    The developer is also responsible for Kampus – the £200m mixed-use scheme on nearby Aytoun Street which is being delivered with joint venture partner, Henry Boot.

    Work on Crusader Works is due to start on site next May, with the first phase of the apartments to be ready for occupation towards the end of 2018.

  • Capital & Centric has sold Hangar 1 and 2, the two units which make up its £3.5m industrial scheme at Estuary Commerce Park in South Liverpool, to a video production company and a film technology firm.

    Sports media firm, PPL acquired an 18,000 sq ft building as its new HQ and to accommodate its video production facilities, while Gencoa has taken the neighbouring 22,000 sq ft building for product development laboratories.

    The two buildings are situated on the old Liverpool Airport runway in landscaped surroundings and were speculatively developed by Capital & Centric, using £1.4m of ERDF funding following its acquisition of the five-acre site from the Homes & Communities Agency last year.

    The buildings, designed by SixTwo Architects and built by Seddon Construction, are super energy efficient and have subsequently been awarded BREEAM excellent ratings.

    Adam Higgins, co-founder of Capital & Centric, said: “We have developed several buildings on Estuary Commerce Park now. These projects have created hundreds of tech jobs for the local economy, regenerated brownfield land and delivered energy efficient buildings; it’s something we’d like to continue to do here as well as on other sites in the North. Hangar 1 and 2 defy the typical stereotype of a dull grey industrial warehouse by providing a light, bright and inspiring place to work in a prominent location befitting to a headquarter facility.”

    CBRE and JLL acted for Capital & Centric on the disposals. DLA Piper was the appointed lawyer for Capital & Centric.

  • Many landlords claim to be the best around, but in Metropolis’s eyes none can hold a candle to Manchester-based developer Capital & Centric.

    Last Friday, the generous folk at Capital & Centric, which is led by Adam Higgins and Property Week Forty under 40 hotshot Tim Heatley, treated all their tenants to a pizza lunch.

    As you can imagine, its tenants were delighted with their Friday treat and tweeted their pleasure. Architectural firm Pixel Reality tweeted: “The wonderful @CapitalCentric sent us pizza today. Best landlord ever?”

    With a picture of leftover empty boxes Denovo Design tweeted: “Who polished this lot off? Thanks #TopLandlord.”

    With service like this, Metropolis is left wondering if Capital & Centric is interested in buying a certain office building in Croydon.
