Four residential property schemes in Stockport have been shortlisted in Insider Media’s North West Residential Property Awards 2021.
Two developments that have turned disused buildings into apartment have been recognised. Rise Homes’ Mailbox, the former Royal Mail sorting office; and the conversion of the White Lion pub by Stockport Council and Trafford Housing Trust, both in Stockport town centre, have been shortlisted in the Apartment Development of the Year (fewer than 200 homes) category.
In North Reddish, the Williamson Gardens housing scheme, designed by Fibre Architects, has also been shortlisted for Small Housing Development of the Year (fewer than 100 homes).
Capital&Centric, who have also been nominated for one of their Manchester City Centre schemes, have been shortlisted for Deal of the Year for their purchase of the historic Weir Mill. The developers, best known for their regeneration of Victorian mills, confirmed their purchase of the site in summer 2020 and are currently seeking planning permission for a 253-apartment development on the site.
Insider’s Editorial director, Miri Thomas, said:
It was hugely encouraging to see that despite the immense challenges of the past year, we received more entries for the 2021 event than we did for the previous year.
“The companies shortlisted here should be justly proud of their achievements and agility in these difficult times.
“This year’s event will be a celebration of the strength and resilience of the region’s residential property sector.”
Winners of the North West Residential Property Awards 2021 will be announced during a gala dinner ceremony, held at Manchester Central on 15 July.
