X1 The Exchange Overview

Home to MediaCityUK, the Lowry Theatre and the Manchester Imperial War Museum, Salford Quays is an area that has been cited for future growth, due to the vast amount of regeneration in the area since the BBC moved there in 2011. 

Attracting approx. 7 million visitors, at a value of around £479m, it is little wonder that Salford Quays is at the top of the list for residents seeking good quality properties, in a location that is accessible for both commuters and city centre workers alike. 

X1 The Exchange follows the highly successful formula of sold-out projects X1 Salford Quays 1 & 2. Built to the same high standard and offering fully-furnished options in addition to secure parking spaces, these high-end apartments are certain to be popular.

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.
