Inspired purchases former office building in Greater Manchester

CGI of Sim Chem House
Inspired Asset Management has purchased former office building, Sim Chem House, in Cheadle Hulme, Greater Manchester for €5.9m (£5m). The six-storey 1960s building sits on a 1.27-acre site and consent has been obtained for a 184-unit residential scheme comprising high specification studio, one and two-bedroom apartments. Located on Warren Road in the sought-after Greater Manchester suburb of Cheadle Hulme, the scheme is Inspired’s first in the north and has an estimated GDV in excess of €29.3m (£25m). The deal was introduced and backed by Sanjay Shah, owner of local property company Mirasa Limited, together with his co-investors.

The 7,614 sq m (81,956 sq ft) building was last occupied in early 2011 by engineering consultancy Simon Carves Limited and had been earmarked for redevelopment by Stockport Borough Council. It sits conveniently for commuters just moments from Cheadle Hulme railway station, with direct trains to Manchester Piccadilly in just 16 minutes and Stockport in only six minutes. The apartments will be designed to a high specification, including hardwood flooring, granite worktops and designer bathrooms, with prices starting at €151,028 (£129,000) for a one-bedroom high specification apartment. Construction is expected to commence in early Summer 2017.

Martin Skinner, Chief Executive of Inspired Asset Management, said: “Our strategy has always been to pick areas undergoing significant regeneration that are affordable to young professionals and have great transport links. With strong rental growth predicted in Manchester over next five years, yields above five percent and government support through the Northern Powerhouse agenda, Manchester has become a hotspot for both UK and overseas investment, while the €936.6m (£800m) Chinese-backed Airport City scheme will create a new business hub less than five miles away from our development.”
