Danforth is a 113 unit apartment building within Fortis Quay, which is set to provide a fantastic village-like environment due to it comprising of five unique developments; Danforth is currently phase two out of five. The concept was formed to recognise the history of the iconic Salford Quays waterfront alongside its illustrious past as one of the UK’s most popular ports despite its inland position. The canals give Salford Quays a unique identity and make it a peaceful and picturesque place to live overall.
The luxury apartments spread over this 15-storey tower will prove popular amongst the large number of young professionals who live and work in the area (which so happens to be a vibrant business centre and beautiful recreation area). In addition to this, Manchester city centre is only a short journey away which is a big draw for tenants.
Each apartment comes complete with an en-site bathroom, communal garden as well as access to an on-site gym, concierge and resident’s car parking. Residents will benefit from being located only a few minutes’ walk away from a Metrolink tram station which will give them convenient access to the entertainments on offer in Manchester city centre.
Salford Quays rental market is currently booming and this is set to improve with the addition of the new HS2 line, a high speed railway which will reduce journey times to London to just over an hour. Cities such as Leeds, Liverpool, Sheffield, York, Newcastle and London (the capital city) are currently only a few hours away by train.
The Northern Powerhouse is the UK’s buy-to-let hotspot and Salford Quays is right at the forefront of the UK property investment market. The area offers both strong capital appreciation and high rental yields, making it a favourite choice for investors around the world. Salford Quay’s economy is booming and the last five years has seen the total number of businesses in the city increase by a fifth and the economy grow by 15%. These figures make Salford second only to Manchester in the region and future projections put Salford ahead of Manchester over the next two decades; economic growth of a further 86% and a further 24,000 jobs are expected to be generated.
Economic expansion generally drives the population growth which in turn, pushes up property values and rental yields. Salford Quays is home to media giants such as the BBC and ITV, making it a particularly desirable area for professionals as well as other relocating businesses’. As well as this, Port Salford is currently being renovated and once completed, will bring mass shipping back to the Quays. Until then, residents can indulge in the many shops, restaurants, water sports facilities, recreation centres and places of employment on offer, which all help in driving the value of the area up and no doubt, offer a lifestyle like no other location in Manchester.
TRAVEL AND NEW INFRASTRUCTURE
Manchester Airport is only a short drive away down the M60, the gateway to the national motorway network linking Salford Quays to other major cities. It is the largest airport outside of London and the only one apart from Heathrow to operate two full-sized runways. More than 22 million passengers currently pass through the airport every year to travel on more than 150,000 flights to over 200 destinations worldwide.
But this isn’t even the best news! The airport is undergoing an £800m improvement scheme at present which will only improve its status as a key national transport hub. Right now, media professionals from across the country are moving to Salford Quays to be part of the excitement. So, why not join them?
