Anthony has been at the helm of Portergate Properties for over 25 years, successfully developing retail, industrial, commercial, residential and student accommodation.
He is also a director of a number of property investment companies. Anthony is extremely proud of the Riverside House development.
The result is a building which will enhance student living, improve the local environment and create much needed employment in the area.

Hannah, who is originally from the Preston area, has worked as a PA in the offices of major North West legal practices and recruitment companies and has qualifications in business administration.
Steven is in charge of maintenance at Portergate, providing a friendly, efficient first-class service for residents.
Steven’s experience in a whole host of trades – from electrics and plumbing to joinery – is ideal in fulfilling the role of ensuring Riverside House is properly looked after.
Steven works well in a team environment and enjoys helping people. His past experience as a groundsman and handyman has seen him work in woodlands in Cheshire, holiday complexes in Scotland and airside duties at Manchester Airport.
From South Manchester, his formal training is in joinery, but his skills have widened over the years to make Steven a valuable member of the Riverside team.
