Full description

Tenure: Leasehold

X1 Media City will be made up of 1,100 apartments split evenly across each of its mesmerising glass-fronted towers, and is set to change the Salford Quays landscape forever by increasing the area's already abundant charm, vibrancy and popularity.

This development-with its striking exterior and its equally impressive interior-has set the buy-to-let market alight, with demand skyrocketing for a project perfectly located just seconds from MediaCityUK and just a short journey into Manchester's city centre. It is no surprise that the area is currently enjoying a vast upwards trajectory directly in tandem with the popularity of MediaCityUK, which has gained a reputation as the first bespoke media hub in Europe and is now the home of the BBC and ITV studios, as well as ample bars, restaurants, shops and cultural amenities.

However, it's not just the location which has investors enamoured: X1 Media City is at the forefront of luxury residential living. Each of the development's 100 superb one bedroom apartments benefits from airy living spaces, all of which are fully furnished and complete with a 42" LCD TV, as well as a high-end stainless steel kitchen, a fitted chrome bathroom, and a spacious double bedroom with downlighters and ample storage space. Each one bedroom apartment is, on average, 435 sqft giving its future tenants plenty of light and bright spaces.

As well as high-end living spaces, residents of X1 Media City will have access to a private on-site gym and cinema, underground parking on selected parking and a selection of retail units on the ground floor for the development, put in place for the tenants' ease. In addition, the comfort, safety and state of mind of its residents is a massive consideration for X1 Media City, which is why the development benefits from a state-of-the-art electronic fob-operated door system, complete with video link.

X1 Media City's location is truly unrivalled, just a stone's throw away from the MediaCityUK site and situated against the picturesque backdrop of the Salford Quays waterfront. This development will bring high-end residential living to an area overwhelmed with people looking to live and work in such vibrant community. With a chronic lack of available housing to satiate demand, X1 Media City's 1,100 apartments will help ease the deficit currently affecting the area's ever-growing rental market.

MediaCityUK is a hotbed for employment opportunities. As well as hosting famous businesses like the BBC, ITV and the University of Salford's newest digital media campus, MediaCityUK is also home to all the bars, restaurants and shops you could ever need. Also just a short walk away are other famous tourist attractions, including the Imperial War Museum and Old Trafford, home of Manchester United, one of the most famous football clubs in the world.

Furthermore, tenants are also poised to take advantage of MediaCityUK's excellent transportation network, which spans buses, trains and connections to the Metrolink system, Greater Manchester's light-rail tram network and the largest in the UK. Such an extensive public transport connection means that Manchester city centre can be reached within 15 minutes, and residents can easily travel across Greater Manchester. Furthermore, those with access to a car will benefit greatly from MediaCityUK's almost direct connection to major motorways, and those with an insatiable need for travel will be heartened by the fact that Manchester's international airport is within easy distance by car.
