Henry Boot Developments has been selected as the preferred development partner for the £100m transformation of Manchester’s Deansgate Station.
The redevelopment will see the existing grade II-listed building – which was completed in 1849 – retained, with works undertaken to enhance the entrance, refresh the layout and improve accessibility.
Details for the wider commercial scheme have not yet been revealed.
Adam Brady, director and head of Henry Boot Developments’ Manchester office, said: “There is such a lot happening in this part of the city and this site really stands out as a missed opportunity. This is an incredibly exciting project with huge potential.
“It’s a transformation that will deliver a vastly more pleasant experience for passengers travelling through the station, and also something really special on the adjoining land and buildings.”
The developer has invested heavily in Manchester city centre in recent years, with several high-profile projects underway including Kampus, Silk Works, Equitable Building and Island.
