BRINGING INDUSTRY BACK TO WHERE IT ALL STARTED Mayfield is one of the leading regeneration schemes in the UK and was selected in 2020 as a beneficiary of the Government’s £900m Getting Building Fund. A £23m grant enabled work to begin in December 2020 on the 6.5-acre Mayfield Park which will sit at the heart of our inclusive and progressive mixed-use development. Designed by a team of internationally recognised architects, Mayfield sits at the heart of one of the most competitive, progressive and forward-thinking cities in Europe. This 24-acre brownfield site has a history of innovation dating back to the start of the Industrial Revolution when Thomas Hoyle built his textile printing mill on the banks of the River Medlock. Over the next three centuries Mayfield became home to Victorian public baths, parcel depot, all housed in beautiful Edwardian architecture. Mayfield will bring positive change to Manchester through clever urban development that retains much of the historic industrial infrastructure alongside new, sustainably designed, market-leading buildings in 14 acres of new, green public realm including Manchester’s first new park for 100 years. 13,000 new jobs across tech, professional services and the creative industries will find a home there. First time buyers, professionals and families will find homes in 1,500 new houses and apartments surrounded by bars, cafes, shops and leisure spaces. Conveniently positioned on the doorstep of Piccadilly Station - which welcomes 22 million passengers a year thanks to its excellent connections to Manchester Airport, Birmingham, Liverpool and London - Mayfield is about to become one of the best connected and most compelling new urban districts in the UK.

MORE JOBS FOR YOUNG PEOPLE IN MANCHESTER PHASE ONE COMPLETE 2022-23 In the past decade half of all new UK jobs went to London and the South East, compounded further by the effect of the Covid-19 pandemic impacting Manchester’s labour market at a pace and scale unprecedent in living memory. During the peak of the first wave of the pandemic the number of people in the city unemployed and claiming benefits rose by 91% and youth unemployment doubled. Manchester is at a critical point of recovery and must act to bring economic productivity back to the city-centre. Phase One of the Mayfield development is on site. The first two commercial buildings will provide 320,000 sq ft of office space for thousands of new jobs. It will deliver: • The 6.5-acre Mayfield Park, designed by Studio Egret West • Poulton, a 75,000 sq ft, Grade A office building designed by Bennetts Associates, aimed at MSMEs in the innovation and creative sectors • A 581-space multi storey car park which will serve the whole development • Republic, a 244,000 sq ft, Grade A office building designed by Morris+Company, aimed at medium to large enterprises with large, flexible floorplates
THE RIGHT PLACE AT THE RIGHT TIME LEVELLING UP IN THE NORTH The past year has highlighted significant regional inequality of economic opportunity. Studies show that cities and larger towns in the South East of England are among the most productive, prosperous and happiest places in Europe, while areas of the North have fallen behind. Manchester is leading the change and Mayfield is pivotal to that opportunity. It’s a scheme that will contribute significantly to Manchester’s position as one of the fastest growing globally-important economic cities. In recent years, the city has dramatically reinvented its industrial past to deliver a hugely exciting future. For international visitors Manchester remains the most popular destination in the UK after Edinburgh and London.
HIGH QUALITY MIXED-USE DEVELOPMENT FUTURE PHASES COMPLETE 2024-30 Mayfield will be home to more than 2,500 residents and 13,000 daily workers across a range of industries. The future phases of development will include: • 1,500 new homes • Five further commercial buildings, two of which have been designed by AHMM, totalling 1.3m sq ft • A plaza of 56,000 sq ft of retail, leisure and food and drink outlets which in the historic depot that currently houses our on site live music venue The amenities on site will support the new community of residents, workers and the wider public and tourists who will come to enjoy all that Mayfield has to offer.

Mayfield began with Sir Thomas Hoyle and his textile printing works. He chose Mayfield because he needed access to water to power his machinery, and the need to be in Manchester due to its commercial credentials. People and skills were nearby and good transport infrastructure was on the doorstep. As a result, his innovative business thrived and led the world.
Fast-forward to the 21st Century and the reasons that made Mayfield an interesting place to live, work and play then, are the same now. Only now the river won’t be powering machinery, it’ll be generating the wellbeing of the talent that will work here.
