Student Developments Driving Out Coventry's Businesses
20th Jul 2018
Former Manchester United footballer Gary Neville, has revealed plans to open a new nightclub and university next year as he looks to add to his portfolio of interests after football.
Despite protests over his St Michael's development, the former United star has big plans for Manchester.
In conjunction with fellow legend Ryan Giggs, Neville is behind the 700,000 sq ft high-rise St Michael's scheme located in Manchester's city centre. The property includes a five-star hotel, 153 apartments, office space and enough room for retail and leisure units.
The development was defended by Council Leader Sir Richard Leese amid concerns that it was too large in relation to nearby heritage assets such as Manchester Town Hall and Albert Square.
Neville already has more plans in the pipeline including a nightclub.
"In the next months, I'm also involved in a university for business, media and sport."
Speaking to an invited audience at Insider's 42 under 42 event, the former United player suggested that his success was down to the work ethics learnt from Sir Alex Ferguson and that he didn't believe in out of office replies.
