With unrivalled public transport connectivity, a seasonal events programme and a thriving community, Plot 9a is the 4th phase of development to be brought forward and features winter gardens and roof terraces.

Minister Jeremy Quin broke ground on the Government Property Agency’s new First Street Hub in Manchester today.
When the hub opens, 2,500 civil servants will be based in the new office, taking the total number of people working at First Street to around 6,000.
It’s great news for Manchester too as the move of civil service roles to the city is expected to generate £30m for every 1,000 government roles located here.
Having worked with BAM successfully over the past five years, delivering a number of high-profile schemes across the North West and North East, we are continuing that positive relationship with the recent appointment of this trusted contractor.
The site preparation of Plot 9a which will become the GPA’s Manchester Hub has now completed enabling construction to get underway.
This expansion of the First Street Estate is due to be ready in August 2024 with the GPA moving in at the start of 2025.
