Manchester tower to launch

Developer Salboy is starting to sell apartments in a 40-storey residential tower at Viadux, Manchester, with units going on sale next month.

Salboy director Simon Ismail said he’s been contacted by investors both in the UK and overseas who are interested in the properties.

Designed by SimpsonHaugh Architects, construction is scheduled to take four years.

Ismail said: “Viadux will be Manchester’s premier address, in the heart of the city, close to the historic Civic Quarter and with great transport connections.

“The demand for ultra-high-quality living in the best city centre locations remains constant, and for so many reasons Manchester continues to be the choice within the UK for both investors and people buying to live.

“Rural properties may be back on the agenda but we are seeing the opposite. People are still wanting to buy and live in Manchester and share in the city’s growth and success.

“This is a long -term investment in Manchester and from the level of enquiries we know many people are very confident in what Manchester will look like in four years’ time and want to be part of it.

“It was important for us that local people are able to be part of the launch, share the vision and secure their future home in the city.”

The first phase release will see one and two-bedroom apartments and penthouses, with off-plan sales handled directly by Salboy’s in-house sales team.

Situated next to Manchester Central Convention Centre, the residential tower at Viadux promises generous living spaces, luxurious finishes and state of the art technology

It will be surrounded by private gardens and residents will have access to a gym, yoga studio and cinema with tiered seating.

There are also plans to expand the amenity offering into the Grade II listed viaducts, offering spaces alongside new independent retail and coffee shops adjacent to the main entrance on Great Bridgewater Street.

Prices for a one-bedroom 546 sq ft apartment start at £265,000 with two bedrooms available for £350,000.

The first phase of apartments will be launched on 8th August 2020.
