Award-winning development-led care home operator, New Care, has acquired land in Worsley for a new, purpose built, state-of-the-art care facility.
The one acre site, which is located on Walkden Road and was formerly the Cock Hotel pub, will now be demolished to make way for a ‘new generation’ 71 bed care home, with a value of circa £15million.
New Care has worked closely with planning officers from Salford City Council on the design of the care facility, which will be arranged over three floors featuring fully furnished bedrooms with en suite wet rooms, elegant communal lounges, stylish dining rooms, spa assisted bathrooms, a hair salon and nail bar, plus beautifully landscaped gardens and a first floor terrace.
With planning consent granted, New Care will soon make a start on site, delivering much needed high quality care home beds, with the care home offering outstanding residential, nursing and specialist dementia care.
Chris McGoff, CEO at New Care, comments: “We are delighted to have acquired this particular site and are committed to bringing one of our award-winning care facilities to Worsley.
“Expertly designed, the care home will provide the highest standards of care in a comfortable, safe and stylish home-from-home environment, and will undoubtedly help address the ever increasing shortage of beds in the area as well as provide an invaluable support framework for the local NHS.”
New Care worked with Manchester-based law firm Beyond Corporate on the transaction.
James Flynn, Head of Beyond Corporate’s Real Estate division, said: “This deal is our second with New Care that has been completed under lockdown, and is testament to the power of business continuity, with our Real Estate, Construction and Corporate teams working together with New Care and other parties and advisors to achieve this immensely positive outcome, during what are undoubtedly challenging circumstances. To close any deal at the moment is difficult, to complete a real estate development facility is a credit to everyone involved.
“This new facility will have both a hugely beneficial social impact on the community, freeing up family homes, helping some of the most vulnerable members of society, and supporting the NHS in the most testing of times.”
Nick Hiddleston, Associate Director within CBRE’s Manchester OPRE team, adds: “This site is ideally located for a new, purpose-built high quality care development within Worsley. It is situated close to local amenities and within close proximity to the main road networks including the A580 East Lancs. CBRE is delighted to have brokered the sale of the Cock Hotel to New Care on behalf of Greene King and we look forward to working with parties again in the near future.”
Part of the McGoff Group, New Care is one of the UK’s leading care home providers. Its portfolio of purpose-built ‘new generation’ care centres is fast gaining an enviable reputation for outstanding care that is second to none.
