This brand new build is the 80th development from the developer as well as the first phase of a flagship development named Fortis Quay – of which three out of four have been tremendously successful. The development is situated right in the Heart of Salford Quays and is perfectly placed beside the waterfront in one of the UK’s best rental markets.
The development has proven incredibly popular on the investor market, thanks to the development’s incredible location close to Salford’s Media City UK and Manchester’s Spinningfields. It is within easy reach of Manchester city centre via the nearby Metro link tram service, as well as being only a short walk from the beautiful Salford Quays waterfront and all of the bars, shops and restaurants which can be found there. Alongside their ideal location, the apartments are designed to make the best use of natural light and come equipped with all modern fixtures and fittings alongside a fitted kitchen and contemporary bathroom. This will do well in providing residents with a premium modern living experience overall. Facilities will also include a landscaped communal garden and an on-site gymnasium to further enhance the rental experience for tenants.
MERGING THE PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE…
The Fortis Quay concept was formed to recognise the history of the now iconic Salford Quays waterfront, with a nod to the area’s illustrious past as one of the UK’s most popular ports despite its inland position.
The canals that still exist to this day give Salford Quays a unique identity, and make them a picturesque and peaceful place to live.
The four distinct phases of Fortis Quay will each take the name of a type of anchor in honour of the waterways which give Salford Quays its personality, and will each focus on a key area of Salford and why the area has become a key tenant destination.
Although these four phases exist as separate and distinct entities in their own right, together they make up Fortis Quay, a collection of desirable residential apartment buildings offering future tenants the best in quayside living.

MEDIACITY UK – SALFORD QUAYS
A world-leading media and tech centre
Greater Manchester is one of the top property hotspots in the UK and, within the region, Salford is leading the way. This has been particularly apparent at Salford’s waterfront which has been injected with £560m worth of investment, regenerating the site from underused docklands into a business hub with world-class facilities and a rich cultural offering.
Population growth in Salford Quays is set to soar with the second phase of MediaCityUK agreed last year which will bring a £1bn cash injection to the area, doubling the services available to residents and making the area increasingly attractive. More than 60,000 people already work in the creative and digital industries in Greater Manchester, and this is forecast to grow 27% by 2034, making new developments like Herreshoff Apartments vital.
The local economy has been growing rapidly and the population is expanding to match. The influx of people moving to the area is putting a strain on the local rental market and there is a shortage of high quality accommodation.
The regenerated Salford Quays area is an enormous success, with not only Salford, but Greater Manchester as a whole benefitting from the first phase of the booming MediaCityUK site. Key features include the University of Salford’s on-site presence, occupying a 100,000 sq. ft. site, as well as a beautiful waterside piazza which is perfect for accommodating large-scale events for up to 4,000 people.
With planning permission granted in 2006, Phase 2 of MediaCityUK is now well underway, and will feature additional residential, commercial and leisure developments as well as more open public spaces. The second phase of MediaCityUK will complement the infrastructure that is already in place with buildings linked together by the spacious community public areas which define MediaCityUK as a premier destination to live, work and invest.
