This development sits next door to its sister building, Imperial Point. The 20-storey block was completed in 2005 and is situated towards the rear of the Lowry Outlet Mall, overlooking Central Wharf. The high-rise tower provides a sharp contrast to the low-level apartment buildings at neighbouring Grain Wharf, bringing a contemporary look to the landscape.
The development contains a mixture of one- and two-bedroom apartments, many of which feature water views that are enhanced by the properties’ balconies. The attractive sand-coloured external cladding is mirrored by the ash-veneer finish of the internal woodwork, and the apartments’ open-plan kitchen/diner and living areas offer the flexibility demanded by 21st-century living.
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.
