Avison Young’s real estate management team has been reappointed by Manchester City Council to advise on 60,000 sq ft of commercial space at the Grade II listed Royal Mills scheme in the city centre’s Northern Quarter.
The real estate advisor has overseen Royal Mills for more than six years and has extended its contract with the council to deliver property management, including facilities management, agency and lease advisory services at the site.
Royal Mills comprises six buildings with 320 residential apartments and more than 60,000 sq ft of commercial space, as well as a 500 sq ft retail or leisure unit.
The reappointment on Royal Mills comes after a successful Q1 of new instructions for the real estate management team, including mixed-use development Paradise in Birmingham and 2 Kingsway in Cardiff for Delancey.
Richard Williams, managing director of Avison Young’s real estate management team, said: “Being retained on this prestigious project is a great achievement for us. The strategic fit between the council, the assets at Royal Mills and our capability is exemplary and our reappointment is a real testament to the strength of our new regional director, Emma Berry and the team lead on this asset, Jay Rutter.”
Chris Cheap, principal and managing director of Avison Young’s Manchester office, said: We have a long and successful track record of working closely with Manchester City Council and are delighted to continue advising them at Royal Mills. This instruction perfectly reflects our long term, joined up, advisory approach which I know resonates with our clients.”
