Full description

Tenure: Leasehold

X1 Media City will consist of 1,100 apartments evenly split across each one of the four stunning glass towers, each of which will enhance the Salford Quays landscape forever, adding to the area's charm, vibrancy and popularity.

Demand has been overwhelming for such a striking buy-to-let opportunity. Naturally investors' interest has been piqued for a development in such a thriving and sought-after location, just seconds from MediaCityUK and a short journey into Manchester's city centre. Europe's first bespoke media hub, MediaCityUK has gone from strength to strength since its grand opening in 2011, and is celebrated as the home of the BBC and ITV broadcasting studios, as well as a wide array of bars, shops, restaurants and cultural attractions.

Furthermore, it's not just the location that is drawing people in. X1 Media City has prided itself on redefining luxury rental living, boasting 150 high-specification two bedroom apartments furnished to the highest of standards. Every two bedroom apartment benefits from bright and expansive living areas (complete with 42" LCD TV), a high-end kitchen and integrated appliances, a fitted chrome family bathroom, and two large double bedrooms, the master with an en-suite. If that's not enough, these apartments come with beautiful views of the stunning Quayfront, MediaCityUK, or the beautiful Salford skyline, and boast an average square footage of 661.

As well as the stunning living spaces on offer at X1 Media City, residents are also perfectly placed to take advantage of the development's expansive selection of on-site amenities, including a private gym and cinema, underground parking on selected units, and a selection of retail units on the ground floor for maximum convenience. Additionally, the security of X1 Media City is second-to-none, boasting a state-of-the-art electronic fob-operated door entry system with video link.


Just a stone's throw away from X1 Media City is its namesake, MediaCityUK, situated against the picturesque Salford Quays backdrop. With demand high from an abundance of tenants desperate to live and work in such a vibrant community, X1 Media City is the perfect solution for an area with an influx of workers looking for high-end rental accommodation, especially in an area with a chronic undersupply of available supply coupled with an ever-growing and almost insatiable tenant demand.

As well as specialising in the TMT (Technology, Media and Telecommunications) sector, MediaCityUK is a regional centre for employment opportunities since it plays host to over 200 businesses. The site's most famous inhabitants are undoubtedly the BBC and ITV broadcasting studios, with other big presences including Bupa and the University of Salford's new digital media campus. In addition, MediaCityUK is home to more bars, restaurants and shops than one would ever need, as well as being just a short walk from tourist attractions like the Imperial War Museum and Old Trafford, home of one of the most famous football clubs in the world, Manchester United.

Another feather in MediaCityUK's cap is its excellent transportation network, which spans across buses, train and the Metrolink system, Greater Manchester's light-rail tram network, which is the largest of its kind in the UK. Each connection means quick and easy access to Manchester city centre, as well as the ability to traverse easily between Greater Manchester's additional towns and cities. Those with vehicular access can also benefit immensely from MediaCityUK's great access to major motorway networks, as well as being an easy distance away from Manchester International Airport by car.
