Lendlease Corp. Ltd. cemented a partnership with Allied London, whereby the former will develop four buildings at Allied's £1 billion high-rise St John's scheme in Manchester, U.K., Construction Enquirer reported, citing St John's managing director, Grant Jarvie.
Following the commencement of enabling works, Australian real estate company Lendlease will start building a 52-story private flats tower, as well as the adjacent Globe & Simpson work space building. The residential block will also feature a Nadler Hotel and restaurant, according to the paper.
Lendlease will also take on the development of two 36-story Nickel and Dime buildings, offering 610 apartments. The 6-acre St John's project will provide 3,000 homes and 600,000 square feet of commercial space upon completion.
The publication noted Jarvie as saying that Lendlease will focus on the new-build and masterplan elements of the scheme, while McLaren Construction is tapped to serve as refurbishment delivery partner.
