Cradled between the leafy sanctuary of City River Park and the buzzing city centre, Victoria Riverside is located in the new Red Bank neighbourhood. Lying within Manchester City Centre, the new residential complex puts its residents in prime position to embrace the city’s shopping, art, and culture. A short walk away, you can find a collection of world-class malls, including Manchester Fort Shopping Park, Manchester Arndale, Affleck's, and Barton Arcade, that will bring out excitement in the life of any shopping lover. The area also offers a plethora of grand music venues that attract some of the most popular artists and bands.
Apart from the upcoming City River Park, the choice of nearby parks and other green spaces is wide and varied. Stepped in history and greenery, St Michael's Flags & Angel Meadow Park provides a lovely retreat from the hustle and bustle of Manchester. An 8-minute stroll away from the new development, the historic burial site is peppered with art installations and a few gravestones that make the park a unique place for a tranquil walk.
Placed quite close to Manchester’s major hotspots, the neighbourhood benefits from amazing transport links. An 8-minute walk is all it takes to reach Manchester Victoria station, a combined mainline railway station and Metrolink tram stop that offer local and regional services. Whether you need to reach another corner of the city or make a trip up north, Manchester Victoria will help you arrive at your destination.
Paying homage to the distinct character of the local area, the three towers at Victoria Riverside – City View, Park View, and Crown View – exhibit beautifully designed façades that feature generous glazing, accentuated by striking colours. The scheme ranges from 6- to 36-storey high, with shorter sections opting for a more traditional look with the aid of smooth brickwork. The new development boasts a plethora of enormous floor-to-ceiling windows that let residents enjoy breathtaking views of the City River Park, the city centre, or Angel Meadow Park.
The new residential complex has no shortage of green spaces for its residents to explore. Nestled between City View and Park View, the Podium Garden provides a peaceful, leafy place, where residents are welcomed to unwind, socialise, and work. The garden is packed with a wide array of plants, including sole-shaped raised beds. The centre features two lawns, well suited for yoga sessions and picnicking. Furthermore, those who work from home will find Victoria Riverside’ outdoor work area like a breath of fresh air. Both Park View and City View take pride in their respective lounge areas that give off an international feel with their South American planting, Asian-inspired pendant lighting, and ash wood panelling. Meanwhile, the podium level is home to a state-of-the-art gym, which is available 24/7.
Victoria Riverside delivers a total of 634 new apartments and townhouses, ranging from one- to three-bedroom units. Each apartment takes advantage of floor-to-ceiling, ‘picture-frame’
windows that provide stunning views of the surroundings. The living areas create a soothing feel with their neutral colour schemes and open-plan designs. Available in two colour choices, all kitchens are fitted with a collection of top-notch appliances by Bosch or similar, including an integrated electric oven, a hob with an extractor hood, an integrated dishwasher, an integrated fridge/freezer, and a freestanding washer dryer. Meanwhile, the bathrooms feature a contemporary white steel enamel bath with a fitted shower and a glass shower screen.
