The Northern Quarter is home to some of the quirkiest bars, restaurants and shops the city has to offer and is now welcoming its most eccentric residential development yet, Transmission House. This striking 8-story tower contains 183 unique apartments and penthouses, supported by additional communal facilities such as a remarkable rooftop garden, internal shared courtyard, secure bike store and 24/7 concierge service and reception.Standing in the heart of Manchester’s official, ‘Creative District’, we wanted to create a development that embodied everything Northern Quarter represents, community, innovation, originality, and independence. Our revolutionary new venture is the first of its kind in Manchester’s creative corner andoffers a distinctive way of living, this side of town. Straddled perfectly between the two main train stations, main city centre and prosperous neighbourhood, Ancoats, life at Transmission House allows residents to taste everything Manchester has to offer, right on their doorsteps.

#2 The Ivy, Spinningfields

In recent years, Manchester and Salford’s housing market has expanded and evolved across all corners of the city. This drastic expansion has led to an increase of renters and buyers, all of whom are fighting to secure the most lavish homes the city centre has to offer. It was our vision, when designing the 399 apartments, seven townhouses and lavish amenities at LOCAL Crescent, to create a safe, secure, and innovative new way of living for all our tenants and buyers. We wanted to build an exclusive community within the culturally-rich, Salford district dubbed, ‘The Crescent’, where residents can benefit from beautiful surrounding parkland, unravelled views across the River Irwell and easy access to key developments such as Salford University and MediaCityUK.

#3 Royal Exchange Theatre

LOCAL Blackfriars is one of Manchester’s newest and most revolutionary gated communities, comprising 380 stunning, pet-friendly apartments, townhouses, and penthouses across two remarkable towers. Boasting an impressive portfolio of exclusive amenities, renting, or buying a property at LOCAL Blackfriars includes access to their acre-large communal garden, on-site cinema, laundrette, gym, exercise studio, local bar/bistro, and a 24/7 concierge service. Only a five minutes’ walk from Deansgate, this state-of-the-art complex is a stone throw away from the best bars, restaurants, and cafes the city centre has to offer, not to mention its proximity to several of Manchester’s busiest work districts.

#4 Manchester Museum

#5 Printworks

The Press is made up of 66 New York-inspired apartments and townhouses, situated in the luxe new district of N.O.M.A. This up-and-coming district is known for its business and entertainment developments andmerges antiquated 20th century buildings with contemporary and visionary architecture. The Press could not be more central; but a few moments’ walk from Victoria Train Station and several more to the busy city centre. Residents do not have to travel far to reach some of Manchester’s best shops, such as Selfridges, Harvey Nichols, Arndale Shopping centre, Louis Vuitton and many more. And the same can be said for its proximity to Manchester’s coolest cluster of bars- The Northern Quarter. Born from the skeleton of a gorgeous Grade II-listed building, The Press blends the old with the new, retaining its timeless open-brick walls whilst opting for stylish and modern furniture. Residents are therefore invited to create their own future, in a magnificent relic of Manchester’s industrial past.
