The former Gamecock Pub is located in Hulme on the corner of Booth Street West and Boundary Lane. The current building on the site is a long-redundant public house, which is derelict and is impacting negatively on the local area. Curlew Opportunities are seeking to redevelop the site to create purpose-built accommodation for 259 students, along with a new Gamecock Community Hub for existing local residents.
Curlew Opportunities are a developer with a particular interest in standalone student accommodation proposals and city centre mixed-use projects. The extensive experience and expertise of the Curlew team has already created successful and popular projects.
