Location Overview

Originally a joint tourist initiative between Salford and Trafford borough councils, MediaCityUK and Salford Quays now covers over 200 acres of prime waterfront real estate in the heart of Manchester. Designed as a new commercial hub for Manchester, MediaCity is now home to some of the UK's leading media brands including the BBC, ITV Granada and NEP Connect. 

Today, increasing numbers of companies are looking to relocate to Mediacity, and as such demand for rental property in the area is now at an all-time high. For investors seeking to capitalise on the growing demand for high-standard rental accommodation in Manchester, MediacityUK, and the wider Salford Quays area present an excellent opportunity for long-term investment.
