Uptown is a new residential complex perched on a bank of the River Irwell. Located a short riverside stroll away from the bustling city centre, the development puts its residents within walking distance of numerous amenities and the city’s main business districts. The iconic AO Arena that has hosted an abundance of big-name music and sports events is situated an 8-minute walk away from Uptown. Shopping lovers can rest assured that they will find everything they might need within easy reach as Manchester Arndale with its hundreds of shops and a food court can be reached in 14 minutes.
In case residents want to take a tranquil promenade along a stream, Manchester’s waterways are easily accessible and can lead to some of the city’s most precious gems. For instance, a short walk along the River Irwell will take you to Peel Park, a beautifully landscaped green space that accommodates Salford Museum and Art Gallery in addition to a play area and a collection of sports pitches. The park is a perfect weekend destination for people of all ages that seek a leafy sanctuary away from the buzzing streets.
Getting around and out of the city is an easy task for those who live in Uptown. Just a 10-minute walk away from the new development lies Manchester Victoria Train Station alongside a Metrolink tram stop. The city’s third busiest railway station provides local and regional services to destinations in Northern England. In addition, the tram stop is served by 4 lines, including Green, Pink, Navy, and Yellow.
The building amazes passersby with its unique shape and contemporary-style architecture. Uptown includes three triangular-like sections with sharp edges positioned in a way that resembles three waves. The different-coloured blocks are soothing to the eye with their neutral tones, ranging from brown to white. Covered in smooth panels, the modern façade is streaked with rows of large floor-to-ceiling windows and cantilevered balconies with sleek glass balustrades.
The riverside location ensures a perfect setting for morning jogs and tranquil strolls. For those who would like to combine some fresh air with breathtaking views of the city, Uptown provides beautifully landscaped rooftop terraces, where residents can gather, have a drink, and unwind in good company. To help homeowners keep up with their workout schedules, the new residential complex offers a state-of-the-art gym. For maximum convenience, the building is equipped with a voice-controlled internal system for heating, lighting, and security.
Uptown offers a premium collection of one- and two-bedroom apartments with stunning views over the River Irwell that residents of the complex can admire through large floor-to-ceiling windows. Bathed in an abundance of natural light, the units also benefit from the developer’s environmental awareness that has resulted in a plethora of features that aim to lower carbon emissions and reduce energy consumption, which in turn will help reduce household bills by 20%. Meanwhile, the kitchens are equipped with high-end appliances to make residents’ cooking experiments more pleasant.
