Downtown Manchester

Downtown is a high profile and prestigious new residential development located right next door to the historic quarter of Castlefield on the banks of the River Irwell.

This landmark development will consist of 368 one, two and three bedroom apartments, contained within six statement blocks ranging from 3 storeys up to 14, creating fabulous views across the Manchester skyline.

Luxury specifications are the hallmark of Downtown. Taking its inspiration from Manhattan’s iconic landscape, Downtown is a new ‘hotel-style’ development that is aimed at Manchester’s discerning and aspirational young professional market. Boasting a wide range of hotel-style services such as concierge, gymnasium, spa, media room, rooftop terrace and al fresco seating areas, Downtown is set to take city living to a whole new level.

With ample parking and packed with added value features, the superbly appointed apartments benefit from large glazed windows with excellent natural light and fantastic views. The exterior of the development is highly impressive too with its high grade panels and curtain walling providing an attractive and eye-catching façade.

Enjoying a prime position in one of Manchester’s most fashionable quarters, Downtown is setting the benchmark that other developments aspire to follow.



Manchester is quickly becoming one of the most dynamic and exciting metropolitan cities in Europe. With a thriving cultural, entertainment, sporting and business scene, it’s easy to see why Manchester has become the flagship for the Government’s Northern Powerhouse initiative. Downtown will raise the bar in luxury city living and provide people who long to live in the heart of the city with a fabulous location in which to reside.

Situated on the banks of the River Irwell, Downtown’s prime location benefits from its proximity to the multi-million-pound generation of Chapel Street and Manchester’s very first ferry taxi service. The neighbouring footbridge also provides a direct link to the historic Castlefield Quarter, Cornbrook Metrolink station and the commercial heart of Manchester city centre.



Why invest?

Manchester is one of the UK’s youngest and most exciting cities. With an ever-growing young professional market and rents at an all-time high, the timing is absolutely perfect to invest in the booming Manchester property market.

With the UK Government keen to target cities outside of London and the reality that cities command a much greater rental audience, Downtown is ideally placed to maximise on the demand for high quality rental apartments in the centre of Manchester.

Home to two of the world’s biggest football clubs, the largest student campus in Europe, and 60 FTSE Top 100 companies, Manchester is an economic and entertainment heavyweight that continues to attract investors.

Rental yields that can be achieved in Manchester are amongst the highest in the UK and Downtown represents a superb opportunity to invest in one of the top investment hotspots not only in the UK but in the whole of Europe.
