The next level in luxe city living, Blackfriars is a gated community. The development comprises 380 apartments, townhouses, and penthouses across two striking towers. These are architecturally blended into a Grade II-listed former public house – the Black Friar – which has been repurposed as a gateway entrance.
Substantial communal garden space is complemented by second-to-none amenities that include a 24/7 concierge service, bistro, bar, gymnasium, yoga and dance studio, cinema room and fully equipped laundry. The contemporary bistro café – open to both residents and the public during normal business hours – further adds to the vibrant communal feel of the space. Blackfriars is far more than a place to lay your head at night. It’s a self-contained neighborhood in its own right.
Blackfriars’ location raises the bar for luxury residential developments and is just five minutes’ walk from Manchester’s bustling shopping district. Some of which are Selfridges, Harvey Nichols, the deathlessly hip Northern Quarter – and the glossy nightlife of Deansgate and Spinningfields.
Manchester’s rise to be a world-leading, modern economy has seen Oxford economists predict that employment growth in the city over the next five years will exceed many international capitals including Paris, Berlin, and Tokyo. A significant investment is being made across Greater Manchester into all sectors of the economy. Significant infrastructure spending will make Manchester one of Europe’s best-integrated cities with seamless transport solutions for its citizens.
Further private and public sector investment across Manchester from both domestic and international investors is a testament to the city’s economic vitality and its status as a world-class business and investment location.
