MediaCity doesn’t stand still. In just ten years we have become one of the world’s leading media and tech hubs.
Thirty years ago, Salford Quays was just an idea.
What would become a vibrant waterfront community was an empty dockyard full of industrial relics, with water so polluted that little could survive its depths. By 2020 it had become one of Europe’s most successful waterside regeneration projects. Home to a global media and tech hub. A place where people live and work, and thousands visit.
The journey for MediaCity has only just started. Peel L&P and Salford City Council are working closely to establish a joint vision for the significant growth of the MediaCity community as a place to live, work and enjoy. The scale of opportunity for the emerging expansion of MediaCity is significant and has the potential to be one of the UK’s largest and most forward looking urban developments.
The iconic, £140 million (GDV), 11-storey, innovation-led development in prime position opposite ITV and The University of Salford media campus, will be best in class, setting out to achieve Net Zero Carbon development status using the UK Green Building Council (UKGBC) Framework, Well Gold, with the goal of reaching Platinum status as well as the world renowned BREEAM Outstanding recognition. It will further bolster the portfolio of MediaCity’s net zero carbon buildings which currently has the highest cluster in the UK.
The highly sustainable development, designed by Sheppard Robson, with its striking glass and aluminium façade, will deliver a further 263,000 sqft of flexible office space to MediaCity with the potential to host a mixture of large corporates and small to medium sized businesses within its ARRIVE co-working workspace. It will be home to 2,200 people as well as three retail and leisure units, spanning 9,400 sqft across the ground floor, earmarked for independent traders.
The attractive development, will feature green balconies on every other level as well as an outdoor terrace overlooking a new, vast 28,000 sqft landscaped public realm which will maximise biodiversity with pathways and seating areas set within extensive trees, shrubs and herbaceous grasses for workers and the public to enjoy.
In line with its green credentials and focus on health and wellbeing for those that use the space, the development will support sustainable travel initiatives with a 283-capacity safe bike hub with changing facilities.
Pre-let opportunities are available on the whole or a significant part.
