Development of The Downs Quarter, Altrincham

A joint venture between The McGoff Group and Consensus Property has been formed in order to deliver The Downs Quarter development in Altrincham. Both companies are family owned companies based in Altrincham within the northwest property sector.

The Thompson family began to gather the land approximately 19 years ago and proceeded to build and sell 15 apartments together with six commercial units along the frontage of The Downs and continued to prepare the infrastructure for 39 more properties at the rear of the site.

This part of the development was then sold to House Crowd in January 2019. However, House Crowd Development subsequently collapsed in March 2021. Derek Thompson consequently bought back the site from administrators with the McGoff Group becoming involved at the beginning of 2022 in order to move the project forward.

The Downs Quarter will comprise of a collection of 39 flats and townhouses together with a commercial unit. McGoff Construction are to complete the design and build of the development using in-house resources from group companies, Panacea Building Systems (drylining) and McGoff Group Facilities Service (M&E, passive fire & joinery). McGoffs residential arm, Villafont are to handle sales.

Brendan Caloe, head of special projects said: “Having commenced with the detailed design we anticipate the build of the project to take approximately 61 weeks”.

Manchester’s Beyond Corporate is advising on the build contracts with Brabners handling the conveyancing and plot sales.
