Our people are engaged in some of the most exciting and challenging real estate projects in the UK and beyond. Here are just a few examples:
Regenerating the home of Coronation Street
When ITV moved from its Quay Street site in Manchester – the home of the iconic television soap Coronation Street since its first broadcast in 1960 - to MediaCity, Deloitte was appointed to help regenerate Quay Street. We advised on an interim destination for new cultural and leisure uses and worked on a long term strategic regeneration framework for the site.
Here East, London
Launched in October 2016, Here East is a world-leading technology and digital cluster in the Olympic Park. The former Olympics Broadcast Centre is now a well-designed business and innovation space for a 5,300 strong workforce supported by restaurants, shops and other facilities. We secured planning permission for the development including the use of innovative design codes and strategies to deliver the scheme while maintaining high quality design.
The growth in renewable energy sources means that the National Grid has a number of brownfield sites which no longer need to accommodate wrought iron gasometers that were traditionally used to store gas. We worked with the National Grid and the Berkeley Group to establish a Joint Venture to help sell these sites. We continue to be involved with planning their regeneration.
Award winning Manchester residential project
We worked with Manchester City Council to produce innovative, proactive and accessible guidance that encourages high quality residential housing design. We consulted with professional and community organisations, as well as the local community. The award winning document we created as result is a material consideration for applications in Manchester.
