Maple Grove Developments acquired and re-developed the former Eagle Star House at 58 Mosley Street, in the heart of Manchester city centre, to become the new home for Cobbetts solicitors.

The previous 7 storey building was demolished and a striking new 8 storey building with basement developed in its place.
The new building provided 9,475 sq m (102,000 sq ft) of offices on 7 floors and 865 sq m (9320 sq ft) of retail accommodation in four units on the ground floor.
The development was forward sold to Alanis, with funding from Anglo Irish Bank. Whilst the whole building was leased to Cobbetts Maple Grove Developments took a lease back of the retail units for a period of 10 years, so currently remain responsible for the letting and management of them. This is an illustration of the company's flexible approach to development and disposal and the benefits of being part of the Eric Wright Group.
