Merchant’s Quay was one of the earliest residential developments at Salford Quays, having been constructed in the mid-to-late 1980s. The development, situated at East Wharf South between piers 6 and 7, consists of 100 residential properties, which are a mixture of terraced town houses, mews properties and low-rise apartment blocks.
The properties benefit from generous parking allocations and beautiful garden areas. Its waterside location also means that it is something of a wildlife haven, with swans, geese, herons and even kingfishers being spotted regularly here. Being situated slightly separately from the majority of Quays developments, this quieter location is ideal for families or those studying or working from home.
Salford Quays has benefited from extensive regeneration over the past twenty years. Now a thriving business district, residential area and culture zone (being home to MediaCityUK, Imperial War Museum North and the Lowry arts complex), it’s a great alternative to living in Manchester city centre. The growing number of shops, bars and restaurants means that it is favoured by young professionals, mature students and families. The Quays are particularly popular with commuters due to the high number of developments with parking spaces, the proximity to the motorway and excellent public transport links, including several Metrolink stations.
