|The Point with McCaul's Developments||New Islington, Manchester|
In partnership with urbanbubble, The Point developers achieved:
- A new site designed with residents in mind
- Better security features for city centre living
- Leaseholders happy with their managing agent from the start
The full story:
Designed and built by McCauls in partnership with UK’s top architects, David Prichard, of Metropolitan Workshop, London, The Point is one of the most finely-honed new developments in Manchester.
With a unique waterside location that overlooks Manchester’s newest park, it’s designed to be a fantastic place to live, work and enjoy life set in the heart of New Islington, the city’s newest and most exciting residential quarter.
Making The Point
urbanbubble was proud to be involved with The Point from the get-go, working with the developers to make it even more attractive to the go-getting residents the scheme was designed for.
With expert knowledge of aspects of residential buildings that aren’t normally prioritised, such as access controls, internal lighting and car park access, the team helped plan smarter systems that really make sense.
Clever additions such as GSM entry systems that eliminate the need for miles of cabling and smart control lights won’t just save money during installation but also keeps costs down for leaseholders further down the line.
urbanbubble’s excellent relationships with fire safety and landscaping contractors are also used to create economies of scale to achieve more cost-effective solutions to your requirements.
Whilst consultation on flow and layout within the building can help you avoid rectifying expensive mistakes that only become apparent when units within your development are occupied.
Smart move for developers
Working with urbanbubble means developers receive unrivalled support before, during and after construction.
urbanbubble prepares comprehensive quotes for service charges, providing true value for money with no cheapening of service. Their responsive management team will work with you as much or as little as you need and produce a full financial plan for years 1, 2 and 3.
A move in pack can be created in partnership with your sales and marketing teams to produce a high spec welcome for owners that helps them from day one.
We can even use our extensive database to market your properties to our list of Manchester property investors who trust us to recommend new opportunities to them.
Which means that in the end, you have cohesive, well-managed building that owners feel happy to have invested in.
The urbanbubble benefit
Adding the perfect design features to The Point meant looking beyond the blueprints and calling on years of experience in how a residential development lives, breathes and evolves.
So we ensured aspects such as security and CCTV could cope with the sometimes rigorous demands of Manchester city centre, ensured excellent finish quality throughout and even specified extras such as storage lockers in the parking areas to really help the development stand out.
With Phase 1 of The Point now completely sold out and Phase 2 looking set to follow suit, we think adding urbanbubble to your plans makes sound commercial sense ever time.
There’s not been a lot built since 2008 nationally or within the City Centre residential market. The tide is changing and urbanbubble are appointed to several new schemes including Pomona Wharf in Trafford (150 apartments completing 2016), Nuovo in Manchester City Centre (126 apartments completing end of 2014) and Capital and Centric MMU residential plans with aspirations for 500 homes in the City Centre. Many more new residential schemes are due to come on board as plans firm up and developments are approved. Whether you have an idea, a firm plan or nearing practical completion, urbanbubble invites any developer to come and chat about your residential development and how we can make it make it a place people want to live for years to come, whilst not costing the earth in running costs.
“urbanbubble gave our prestigious development an extra level of shine in the city centre property marketplace”
