Manchester City Council has reappointed Avison Young to advise on 60,000 sq ft of commercial space at the Royal Mills scheme following a highly competitive process.
The real estate’s management team has looked after the Royal Mills instruction for over six years and has renewed its contract on the site to deliver property management, including facilities management, agency and lease advisory services.
The Grade II listed Royal Mills scheme located in the city centre’s Northern Quarter 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.
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, added: “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.”
The contract award follows 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.
