Mayfield will be delivered by The Mayfield Partnership, a public private joint venture partnership between LCR, Manchester City Council, Transport for Greater Manchester and regeneration specialist U+I. Together, we have a vision for a bustling, buzzing, inclusive world-class urban neighbourhood that’s like nowhere else in the city. We want to create an area with soul that’s a magnet for families, businesses and visitors. The long-term plan for Mayfield is to create an iconic, £1bn mixed-use community over the next 10 years, including a 6.5-acre public park, outstanding office space, and unique shopping and leisure experiences. Rest assured, as partners we’ve got the skills, experience, intelligence, imagination and audacity to turn the Mayfield vision into a brilliant reality that everyone in Manchester can be proud of.
