We were particularly interested in the Fort George site which, once completed, will help to transform and revitalise the City’s riverfront.

“The Fort George Site will also be the location for the construction of the Project Kelvin Telehouse, an exciting development which will have the potential to bring economic prosperity and much needed jobs to the North West.

“As well as information on current projects, today’s briefing from Ilex highlighted a number of exciting future plans to regenerate the city. The Committee looks forward to keeping abreast of all developments and to revisiting the city in the very near future.”
