X1 Salford Quays Phase 2 Overview

Located in an area of huge regeneration, Salford Quays is one of the most vibrant places in Manchester to work, live or play.  On the doorstep of the brand new Media City site; now home to the BBC and ITV studios, the area is thriving as a host of new businesses, restaurants and retail outlets continue to move in, capitalising on the increased population in the area.

All apartments are finished with high-specification fixtures and fittings, including a double-sized bed, a mattress, a wardrobe, bedside tables, a sofa, a coffee table, a full TV set, a shower bathroom, a dining table and chairs.

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.
