Muse and Place to collaborate on powering up the North
The developer and media organisation will work together to showcase the North’s vast potential, including the game-changing regeneration schemes taking place across the region.
Muse is leading many of those projects, including Salford Central, Birkenhead Town Centre, Prestwich Village, and Blackpool’s Talbot Gateway in the North West.
In Yorkshire, schemes include One City Park in Bradford, Forge Island in Rotherham, and Merchant Gate in Wakefield.
Heading to the North East, the placemaker is behind the £300m Northshore neighbourhood in Stockton-on-Tees, The Word in South Shields, and Newcastle Quayside.
“2023 saw us working with our partners across Yorkshire and the North East to build a brighter future for our towns and cities, along with entering in to an exciting new partnership to unlock the potential of Bradford City Village,” said James Pitt, managing director of Yorkshire and North East at Muse.
“We’re looking forward to continuing this momentum and growing further through large-scale, long-term partnerships,” he continued.
“Place Yorkshire and Place North East are perfectly placed to complement our existing partnerships and forge new relationships, all with a focus on people-focussed placemaking and regeneration,” Pitt said. “We look forward to working together to achieve our vision.”
Showcasing the potential of the North West, Yorkshire, and North East – and championing the region’s property industry – is at the heart of Place North’s mission.
Dino Moutsopoulos, managing partner and head of commercial at Place North, said he was thrilled to work together with Muse in 2024.
“Muse is one of the foremost developers in the UK,” Moutsopoulos said. “Muse’s track record across the North is excellent and as such we are delighted that they have chosen to collaborate with Place North in 2024.”
Moutsopoulos continued: “We look forward to shining a light on the excellent Northern schemes coming forward from Muse and supporting them and their partners.”
Muse has offices in Salford, Leeds, London, and Birmingham. The company is part of the Morgan Sindall Group.
