Insignia finds itself at the heart of the Trafford Civic Quarter that lies within Old Trafford, an iconic urban centre in Greater Manchester that features an abundance of world-class amenities. First and foremost, the area is known for its renowned sports facilities. The new residential complex is cradled between the legendary Old Trafford Stadium and Old Trafford Cricket Ground, both of which can be reached in under 9 minutes by foot. Those who are not big fans of sports might be glad to know that the area bustles with vibrant cultural facilities, such as O2 Victoria Warehouse, Ordsall Hall, and IWM North.
The new development is surrounded by a wide array of green spaces, including Gorse Hill Park, Seymour Park, and Nansen Park. Residents of Insignia are spoilt for choice when it comes to leafy retreats, where they can enjoy an occasional stroll, a jog, or a friendly gathering. In addition, the residential complex is nestled right next to Manchester’s canal network, providing plenty of waterside footpaths to amble along while soaking up beautiful sceneries.
The presence of the legendary stadium nearby ensures excellent connectivity. Insignia benefits from close proximity to Metrolink and railway services, including Old Trafford Tram Stop and Manchester United Football Ground Railway Station that can be reached in less than 10 minutes, providing easy access to the rest of the city and beyond.
The high-rise development is stretched along Warwick Road, making a great addition to the neighbourhood. The contemporary-style façade presents a mix of traditional grey brickwork and sleek panelling. Moreover, the building is generously peppered with floor-to-ceiling windows that are grouped in equal rectangles, accentuating Insignia’s silhouette. The exterior features different shades of grey that brighten up the elegant façade.
It’s planned to include a “wellbeing route” flowing along Talbot Road that will provide shared surfaces for vehicles, a cycle lane, and a running track for those who pursue an active and healthy lifestyle. Considering the close proximity to the iconic sports venues, the new development is a perfect place for sports enthusiasts. Insignia also comes with secure gated parking for residents’ vehicles. As for security measures, the building is equipped with an intercom system.
The new residential complex offers a total of 90 units, including one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments. All homes boast floor-to-ceiling windows that flood the living areas with ample natural light and provide stunning views of the city. The kitchens come with an integrated dishwasher and under-cabinet lighting that bathes the worktops in soft illumination. In addition, each apartment features a bath for soaking in hot water after a long day to relieve some stress.
