Nuovo – Sarah Point – Ancoats
Great Ancoats Street, Manchester, North West,
Sarah Point was meant to be a residential development consisting of 166 apartments in Ancoats in Manchester. The project was abandoned when property developer Basahr Issa went bankrupt owing £39m. In 2011 the site was acquired by UK Land and Planning who renamed the scheme Nuovo and they received a £2.5m grant from the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA). The project was meant to be finished towards the end of 2012 but shortly after starting the redevelopment, UKLP stopped work due to escalating costs. The building has been sat abandoned ever since. This is a prime site which could be transformed into apartments and commercial space yet it is just an eyesore in Ancoats. Do something about it!
