X1 Media City Tower 1 Overview

Completed and tenanted, Tower 1 was a great success. The development is located in a highly-sought area, with very close links to Manchester City centre. As well as being the first tower to set the standard so high, Salford is pleased to be adding three more towers alongside Tower 1, also featuring luxury studios and spacious one and two-bedroom apartments.

Set in one of the most desirable neighbourhoods in the North, close to MediaCityUK, residents can enjoy the breath-taking views from their window of the city and Salford’s waterfront, whilst taking advantage of the building’s ample on-site amenities including underground private parking, a private gym and an on-site cinema.

Why invest in Manchester?

Manchester is growing and developing at a substantial rate. It has risen 26 places in this year’s Global Liveability Index, making it the top most liveable city in the UK and 28th across the globe. In addition, Manchester is set to see the highest rate of economic growth of all major cities over the next five years with a GVA growth of 16.4% according to Oxford Economics. Rental rates in Manchester are also forecasted to increase by 2.9% over the next five years according to JLL.

MediaCityUK is home to world-class studio facilities making television, radio and digital productions broadcast worldwide. Many media professionals working here also live beside the tranquil Salford Quays. Manchester’s business district Spinningfields is home to several of The Times Top 100 Graduate Employers. So it may be no surprise that the city comes top in the UK outside of London for attracting students and retaining them after their studies are complete.
