Waterfront apartments in Manchester canalside

Attention is turning to Manchester’s waterfront apartments as the famous canals and rivers weave through this bustling city.

Manchester is a complex yet rich city. The area is extensive, its inhabitants are diverse and its hidden treasures are countless.

Beyond the silhouette of a dramatically changing city, a historically vibrant art and music scene, and its world renowned football teams, there lies something distinctively unique about the city of Manchester.

It may well be 40 miles inland, but in the late 1800s Manchester was home to the third largest port in the country.

The River Irwell and the Manchester Ship Canal weave their way through the city. They once supported a bustling trade route between the Irish Sea and Manchester.

The shipping industry evolved and as a result the waterways became symbols of a bygone era.

However, interest in the area has been renewed in recent years.  Bars, cafés and shops have opened up alongside the canals and river, rejuvenating the area.

Luxury living in Manchester’s waterfront apartments

Developers and investors have seen the enormous potential of the land that lies alongside the waterways. As a result, redevelopment is plentiful.

Modern, luxurious waterfront apartments have become the latest must-have. They are ideal for those who enjoy the serenity of nature with the convenience of city centre living.

Property Alliance Group have been property developers in Manchester for the past 28 years. Amongst their portfolio of city centre developments, they have an award-winning luxurious apartment block just five minutes’ walk from the city, alongside the River Irwell.

Uptown is Riverside Luxury near the CBD

Uptown Manchester is an example of premium riverside living. It comprises three strikingly stylish, apartment buildings that rise to different heights. This creates a high impact, staggered impression of the city’s landscape.

Furthermore, Uptown Manchester provides easy access to the CBD and main retail district, and is located adjacent to Victoria Station. The exclusive riverside property includes 156 large one and two bedroom apartments, which have been innovatively designed with floor to ceiling windows, opulent interiors and large communal and private rooftop terraces.

The development was recently voted “Best Overseas UK Residential Development 2018” by Squarefoot magazine.

Tom Russell, Managing Partner of Alliance Investments said, “We designed Uptown Manchester to cater to Manchester’s rapidly growing rental market. It has estimated rental yields of 6% and some of the strongest growth prospects compared to anywhere else in the UK”.

Most noteworthy, the premium waterfront property combines fine build quality with five star luxury facilities. These include a high tech fully equipped gymnasium, roadside and underground bicycle and car parking, and hotel style concierge. The design includes ascending communal and private rooftop terraces that mirror the form of a green river bank gradually sloping away from the city’s famous River Irwell.
