MCFC stars break ground on new CitySuites development

James Milner, Eliaquim Mangala & Bacary Sagna joined Select Property Group COO Trevor Moore to start construction of stunning CitySuites development.

Construction of Select Property Group’s CitySuites development in Manchester officially started this week – and three stars from Manchester City Football Club were on hand to help break the ground.

Taking time out of their team’s crunch end-of-season schedule, England midfielder James Milner and French internationals Eliaquim Mangala and Bacary Sagna swapped the light blue for the high-viz, as they joined the Group’s Chief Operating Officer, Trevor Moore, to officially mark the start of work on the 17-storey development, located in the heart of Manchester city centre.

Part of the city’s Greengate regeneration project, CitySuites is a new concept in luxury, rented living, built for the growing number of affluent business travellers and executives that live and work in Manchester, recently named as the UK’s second city for investment.  Moore and the trio of Premier League aces stepped onto the site on Chapel Street to kick start the work that’s due to be completed next year.

Commenting on today’s ground breaking, Moore said: “With its global supporter base and on field successes, MCFC helps promote Manchester to a worldwide audience on a weekly basis. Manchester’s appeal similarly transfers to the business world, with the region an important European enterprise location. This has seen more international businesses and organisations locate to the city to benefit from a strong economy, fantastic transport links and a rich, vibrant culture.”

“At Select Property Group we identified the need for luxury rental property to accommodate the increasing number of business travellers that are staying in the city for relatively short periods. CitySuites is an exciting new concept in rented property, located right here in Manchester, and it will be a striking development central to the Greengate regeneration project”. Trevor Moore, Chief Operating Officer, Select Property Group.

Manchester City and England midfielder, James Milner, said:

“It’s great to be here with Select Property Group to help start work on the CitySuites development. The plans look amazing and I’m sure it will prove to be an incredibly popular and important building in Manchester.”

CitySuites meets the requirements of the growing number of travelling business executives that live in Manchester city centre, whether on a permanent or short term contract basis. Prestigious studio, one, two and three bedroomed apartments are available on flexible tenancies as short as one month, aligned for tenants that need quality accommodation for short periods.

Boasting the luxury services and facilities of a hotel, tenants will also be able to enjoy a concierge service at this exclusive development. Addressing a current undersupply in the UK’s private rented sector, buyers from around the world have already been quick to purchase property in CitySuites.
