These twin circular apartment blocks are both located on the canal and have lovely water views. The spherical shape doesn’t compromise the layouts and the interior spaces are amongst the best in the area. The quality is good and there are balconies to most apartments. All of the blocks in Sport City have lots of wide communal space and The Drum is no exception. The lower floors have quiet water views and the top floor units have panoramic views towards the city centre. This whole area has improved dramatically since the 2002 Commonwealth Games, turning it from a once-deprived area into one of Manchester’s newest and most exciting residential locations. Most people choose to live here for the price; Sport City apartments can be up to 50% cheaper than those in the heart of the city centre.
