• We do property,

  • We do property,

Northern Group is a privately-owned company that doesn’t churn out spaces that look the same as everyone else’s. Our ethos when we’re developing is to look, question, find solutions and in every instance, bar none, ask ourselves, ‘Would I want to live or work in this space?’

We truly believe that if you produce an excellent product, in any industry, customers will find and choose you. The immovable driver for us is to create quality, legacy buildings, to the highest specifications, so that we will always be proud of them – and they will always serve you, our clients. That means that we play the long game. We choose to develop thought-out, design-led, durable spaces that break the mould and stand the test of time. And if you’re an investor looking for us to manage your own portfolio, you can trust us to do it to the same unmatched high standards that we do our own.

Every part of the Northern Group customer journey, from designing properties that will meet your needs, to showing you round them and keeping them maintained, is carried out by our own in-house team, so renting with us means coming to know us and rely on us.

And we know what we’re doing. Like our city, we are industrious and while we don’t shout about who we are - because we're getting on with the important job of managing your space – we have been successful for a long time now, quietly going about our business since 2008 and playing a driving role in the spectacular regeneration of Ancoats, the base that we call home.
