Stop press: JR Development Update May 2019
United legend now turned entrepreneur, Gary Neville, and his team of architects provided a update on the St Michael’s Manchester Development to Shul members at the year’s AGM. It is now likely that we will be vacating the premise for our temporary home at the neighbouring Friends Meeting House in Q4 2019. Building is likely to commence in Q1 – Q2 2020 and the new synagogue will probably be ready to move into two years later. The development will include offices, “the best apartments Manchester has ever seen”, a retail area and a five-star hotel.
