A truly unique collection of one- and two-bedroom apartments on the banks of the River Irwell, Uptown will offer residents private and peaceful living just a few minutes’ walk away from the city centre, key transport links, the Arndale shopping centre, high end bars and restaurants, and the city’s main business districts.
Suitable for owner-occupiers, or those looking to expand their buy to let property investment portfolio, Uptown will also provide a level of luxury and specification of finish currently in huge demand but in chronic short supply.
What’s more, Uptown is also one of the first buildings in Manchester to be built with environmental concerns at the forefront of the design. As a result, it boasts several features that will work to lower carbon emissions and reduce energy consumption - in turn reducing resident's household bills by 20%.
Situated on the banks of Manchester’s River Irwell, Uptown delivers the convenience of city living from a stylish waterfront location.
This luxury waterside accommodation is ideally positioned; residents can explore Manchester’s waterways on foot or by bike and are also a short riverside walk away from the centre of a bustling and vibrant city.
Diverse, energetic and overflowing with character, Manchester is one of the most exciting destinations in Europe. Manchester is celebrated for its warm, friendly and welcoming personality and is called home by citizens from around the globe. The city’s student and business populations are thriving, and a growing number of high net worth individuals are taking residence and investing in this multicultural city.
During Q2 2020, we encountered an issue within the structural design of our Uptown, Riverside development. Following assessment, we were advised by our Structural Engineer that remedial works involving demolition works to the concrete core were required. Specialist equipment was delivered to site during the August bank holiday weekend so that it could be safely and securely stored ahead of any potential demolition work.
We worked closely with Salford City Council keeping them fully informed of all activity taking place on site, and have consulted with the representatives of the local residents committee. Letters were hand delivered to people’s homes informing them of our plans and we provided contact details for key staff members, including our chairman, so that local residents could raise any concerns with us directly. Safety is always the first and foremost consideration for us here at PAG, so Demolition exclusion zones and appropriate control measures were put in place prior to the works commencing. The neighbouring Trinity Way was closed during the two days of these work as an additional precaution.
We are pleased to say that we our team of experts have concluded a revised design that will allow us to resolve the situation and press on with our works on site. We have been able to draw on our extensive network and benefit from experts in their field. Our teams have worked tirelessly to rectify this issue with the best possible outcome. We erred on the side of caution throughout, taking actions that went above and beyond what was required in order to resolve the issue as safely and efficiently as possible.
Additionally, construction of the individual apartment modules continued off-site throughout the process, lessening the impact on the construction programme as far as possible.
The development, although in its early stages has already been shortlisted for Best Use of Timber Technology in The Offsite Construction Awards 2020. We look forward to announcing further awards for this development next year, as Uptown, Riverside nears completion and is recognised for its sustainable qualities and smart home system.
Next update is due week commencing 21st December 2020
