November 2018 marks 100 years since the end of World War I and there’ll be a number of events across the borough to commemorate the centenary.
The major public event will be on Remembrance Sunday (11 November), starting with the Act of Remembrance in the morning, followed by the Service of Remembrance in the evening alongside a ‘Stockport Parade of Light’ and the ‘Lighting of the Beacon’.
Stockport War Memorial Art Gallery will play a significant role in the commemorations. The exterior façade of the Art Gallery will be illuminated with a poppy projection; there will be new exhibitions in the galleries and a community art project where people can get involved.
I am really pleased to share with you my first 360 video tour of a property I have just brought to the market. This is one of several marketing tools that we have at our disposal here at Julian Wadden!
It has been reported in Place, North West that Wellesley House is set to be converted in to residential accommodation.
Wellesley House, a prominent 46,000 sq ft office block in Stockport town centre, could be converted into 77 apartments under plans put forward by developer Mandale Homes.
The seven-storey office block fronts the A6 and sits around 500m from the Merseyway shopping centre, and is also near Junction 1 of the M60.
Former tenants include a Job Centre on the ground floor, and the Department for Work & Pensions, but the building is now largely empty. Space on the seventh floor was previously marketed by consultancy Hallams.
Mandale Homes is proposing to convert the building into a mix of 51 one-bed flats and 26 two-beds. Existing access from both Laurel Street and the A6 will be retained, as will the building’s existing 83 car parking spaces, and cycle parking will be added. The professional team includes TPS as transport consultant. The developer, Mandale, is based in Stockton-on-Tees.
Office-to-residential projects have become increasing prevalent in Greater Manchester in the last 12 months, particularly around Old Trafford where a number of lower-grade office buildings are being converted into apartments or student accommodation.
