ODOS Properties and Partners are happy to announce that we will now be selling new build apartments at Manchester Waters, Pomona Island, Manchester. Find out more by clicking here.
The Manchester Waters scheme will regenerate a former 26 acre dockland site located between the residential neighbourhood of Castlefield and Salford Quays. The scheme forms a key part of the Northern Powerhouse and has a formal masterplan approved and adopted by both Trafford and Manchester City Councils’ with the capability to develop over 2,500 new residential homes. The regeneration plans for Manchester Waters and the adjoining Cornbrook Hub will create a new destination which includes city – living style residential apartments up to 20-storeys in height along with multi-tenure development opportunities for young professionals and families alike.
Located on the north-eastern gateway to Trafford - with a close proximity to the regions most successful and fastest growing business and employment location – Manchester Waters holds a significant strategic role in the Cities’ growth. X1 Manchester Waters is the first phase for the transformational Pomona Island development, delivering 742 homes for private market rent across five residential towers. It is the 20th X1 scheme to be delivered in Manchester.
Aside from being one of the leading cities in the Northern Powerhouse – Manchester’s local buy- to-let market is leading the way in UK Property
Investment and was revealed as the UK’s best buy –to- let – destination by LendInvest in December 2017. As the 6th largest city of the UK with a population of over 530,000 , Manchester has the second largest economy in the UK with the population continuing to grow as young working professionals look to move away from London and to the UK’s second city for work and pleasure. Over the past 10 years alone, some of the leading
international companies such as BBC, Deloitte, Kellogg’s , Barclays and Siemens have moved their offices in and around Manchester with an
increasing number bringing their regional offices to Manchester, including Technology giant Huawei who have just opened their first office in Media
City, Manchester. According to Salford’s City Mayor, the digital tech industry alone has turned over £4.98 billion in the North West and greater Manchester has the largest number of digital workers in the UK outside of London, which looks to continue its upwards growth. It is expected that the pace and level of job creation in Manchester could outnumber that of Berlin, Tokyo and Paris between 2015 and 2020.
Previously dubbed as Manchesters ‘hidden Island’ and laying untouched for years, we are delighted to be helping to breathe life back in to Pomona Island with the delivery of our 5 phase development – X1 Manchester Waters. The island, which was once home to the Royal Pomona Palace and Botanical Gardens later, became docklands to serve the Manchester Ship Canal. X1 Manchester Waters is a key element – and the first being delivered – as part of a 10 year master plan for the area. Occupying the south portion of Peel L&P’s wider 26-acre Manchester Scheme, each tower will bring stunning waterfront apartments to the Island located between Castlefield and MediaCityUK. The location is truly unique and will offer residents stunning waterfront views along with excellent travel links to Greater Manchester –
with the Pomona Island tram stop located just two minutes walk from the development. During one of his first outings as PM, Boris Johnson has pledged to ‘unleash the productive power of the Northern Powerhouse’ and visited Pomona Island as part of a visit for the new Trafford Centre Metrolink extension. The new 5.5km line will extend the current Eccles line to the Trafford Centre, including 6 new stops with £350m of funding from the Government.
With the rate at which both employment and population continue to grow within Manchester, it is not surprising that the City Centre is experiencing a period of wider growth and set to include Pomona Island - one of the last major sites within commutable distance of the City. Backed by Peel L&P – leading regeneration developers – X1 Manchester Waters is perfectly
positioned to offer itself as one of the first responses to the City’s housing needs. Exclusive apartments and quality onsite facilities will make this an extremely desirable location for residents looking to enjoy all of the benefits of City Centre living from a luxury waterside retreat on Pomona Island.
