Allied London has selected its construction partners for the £1bn (US$1.4bn) St John’s project in Manchester.

Lendlease, the construction company based in Sydney, Australia, was be focusing on the new build, whilst the UK’s McLaren Construction will be based on rebfurbishment.

Lendlease will begin work on a 52-storey tower in the 6-acre plot once enabling works have begun in the coming weeks.

The tower has been designed by SimpsonHaugh & Partners, and will host private flats as well as a Nadler Hotel, and a restaurant.

The firm will also work on the Globe & Simpson work space, located next to the tower, and two 36-storey Nickel and Dime buildings, designed by Denton Corker Marshall.

The Nickel and Dime buildings will feature 610 apartments, adding to the total of 3,000 homes and 600,000sqft of commercial space in the St John’s neighbourhood.


 “Over the past 12 months we have assembled a fully integrated and committed St Johns construction delivery team to work together collaboratively to deliver the brand and the vision for St Johns,” stated Grant Jarvie, Managing Director of St John’s.

“To supplement our existing and highly capable in-house construction team we have engaged Lendlease Construction as a significant component within the team, focusing on the new-build and masterplan elements due to their extensive residential and urban regeneration expertise, and McLaren Construction as refurbishment delivery partner due to their extensive experience in cut-and-carve projects.”

“The combined experience and expertise of the St Johns construction delivery team will provide world-class delivery of the overall St Johns masterplan to industry-leading environmental and welfare standards.”

The Astley & Byrom Bonded Warehouse located in the area will be transformed into a film, TV, media, and tech site for companies.
