The Valuation team at Eddisons is celebrating another successful instruction on behalf of Amicus Plc. after we advised on a £9m property loan that was agreed by the specialist lender - secured against the Former Freemasons city centre Lodge adjacent to Spinningfields.
Amicus’ Manchester office approved the facility for the Manchester Hall scheme, which enables the redevelopment and refurbishment of a grade II listed former Masonic Hall in the city centre.
Amicus provided the funding in order to enable the completion of the ongoing works by developer/borrower Vision Investments. Ultimately the iconic Grade II listed building in the heart of Manchester city centre will be restored to its former glory and will comprise of restaurants, conference and events facilities, boutique bedrooms and roof terrace bars – complete with 360-degree views of the Manchester skyline.
The property is located in the heart of Manchester city centre and received a gold medal certification from the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) for its design in 1930.
Phil Deakin, Valuation Director at Eddisons, said: "Eddisons were delighted to be able to advise our clients on another high profile and complex property loan”.
Other notable instructions Eddisons have advised Amicus on since appointed to their panel in June include Winckley House and Guild House in central Preston which are to be redeveloped to provide 122 apartments.
