Regeneration

HIMOR specialise in regenerating brownfield sites.

Our technical expertise enables us to find commercially astute solutions for complex sites. We have a strong track record of delivering high quality development at the most challenging sites.

Our approach is to invest time from the outset to understand the nature and extent of constraints on development. Armed with this knowledge, we devise development strategies that exploit opportunities for quick wins and make targeted investments in remediation and infrastructure when they are necessary to realise additional value.

A keen focus on cashflow is key to successful brownfield regeneration. An example of this is at Bradley Hall Trading Estate in Wigan where we released three parcels of land for residential development comprising well over 400 units. This has enabled investment in the retained industrial land and buildings.

At our flagship Future Carrington project, we are promoting over 7,000 residential units and 8 million sq. ft. of commercial property in conjunction with Trafford Council. We have already secured planning permission for 725 residential units and 1 million sq. ft. of employment space. We will soon be submitting a further application next phase of development comprising 1,500 residential units and 2 million sq. ft. of commercial property.

Trafford Council have established a partnership with HIMOR to bring forward the major development opportunity at Future Carrington. HIMOR have worked collaboratively with the Council, using their regeneration expertise to develop a clear remediation, development and delivery strategy and secure planning permission for Phase 1.
