Siemens plans to transform Princess Parkway Manchester
The Manchester operation of Siemens plc wants to develop its Princess Parkway site in Didsbury by creating a major new mixed use scheme, which would include a Spire private hospital with training and conferencing facilities.
The project, which will include a private hospital, housing and office space, is expected to create more than 400 jobs if it gets the go-ahead. The scheme will include an office park, anchored by Siemens, targeting businesses in complementary sectors including high tech and healthcare. There are also plans to host quality family and executive housing, while crèches, gyms and possibly amenity-scale leisure and retail, may be incorporated.
Over the summer Siemens will seek the views of the local community and other stakeholders before finalising the development application, which has been put to Manchester City Council. The objective is to deliver the plan in phases and to commence construction in summer 2015.
The existing Siemens buildings, which include the iconic Sir William Siemens House, will also be upgraded as part of the plans.
Stephen George & Partners is pleased to have worked with the consultant team advising Siemens, including Aecom, Jones Lang Lasalle and Blue Sky Planning.
