Manchester, March 23, 2023 – Kadans Science Partner, McLaren Property, Property Alliance Group, Moda and Pioneer Group are working collaboratively to deliver an exciting masterplan for Upper Brook Street, Manchester. The consortium has launched a public consultation as part of a transformative vision to deliver an exemplary new neighbourhood for the city.

The plans will bring forward a new mixed-use development, providing much needed R&D space and purpose-built student accommodation, complemented by a mix of ground floor uses and enhanced public realm.

Kadans will deliver a new, sci-tech building designed by our in-house team alongside specialist professionals.

Coupled with informed space planning, the design promotes movement and enhances the quality of internal spaces bringing a step-change in knowledge-focused building design.
