Welcome to the temporary home of Progressive Living Developments.

While we are making some exciting new changes to our website, here’s a snapshot of who we are and what we do!


Progressive Living Developments is a mixed-use property development company based in Manchester. Established in 2016 and led by two directors – David Fairclough and Peter Forster – the business has recently completed North Central, a large-scale residential scheme in the NOMA District of Manchester adjacent to the City’s fashionable Northern Quarter. Progressive Living Developments has also purchased an existing office block in Stockport for future development and is soon to submit planning for a significant development in the Greengate regeneration area of Salford.

Our Projects

North Central
North Central is a £15m mixed-use development which completed in August 2019. Located on Angel Street in Manchester’s NOMA district, the eight-storey building comprises 64 one and two bed apartments, basement car park, bike store, and a 3,500sq ft ground floor retail unit which is let to Co-op.
Gorton Street, Salford
In Planning
Current plans for the 0.42-acre site on Gorton Street in Salford are to create a new 36 storey 225,000 sqft tower to provide accommodation for both residential and leisure/hospitality uses. The property also includes eight railway arches that are set to be repurposed for complementary commercial and leisure operations. A planning application is due to be submitted to Salford City Council in the early part of 2020.
Victoria House, Stockport
Progressive Living Developments acquired Victoria House, a 13,000 sq ft office building in Stockport city centre, in July 2019. The 1960’s, part-tenanted property on the corner of Wellington Street and Piccadilly boasts four floors of commercial workspace as well as basement parking. The site was granted planning approval for a conversion into 21 apartments in 2015 and sits adjacent to the Ritz car park site recently marketed by Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council for residential development. Plans for the site are underway so watch this space!
