3. SYNQ-MCR Penthouse
£450,000 75 square metres 2-bedrooms
“Located in the absolute heart of the UK’s most dynamic city, SYNQ-MCR is a new, high-quality residential development designed by IDP, one of Manchester’s leading architects. The development covers 8 floors with ground floor commercial units, communal facilities, and a rooftop garden. Just one minute walk from Market Street, Manchester’s main shopping street, yet located within Manchester’s hip Northern Quarter, the development is in an unrivalled location within the city – rental demand will be exceptionally high.
The scheme has been designed to appeal to the rapidly growing rental market as well as offering units attractive to owner-occupiers – exceptional rental demand and a strong resale market. Local property prices are predicted to rise by 19.3% (Savills) during the construction phase of the project, allowing purchasing at today’s prices with the potential for significant capital growth before completion. Apart from the shortage of potential development projects in the M1 postal district, most city-centre development is being pre-purchased by Institutional / Private Equity PRS funds providing little or no opportunity for the individual investors or owner-occupiers to purchase a property in super-prime locations in this buoyant market.”
The penthouse apartment features a huge roof terrace space with exceptional views over Manchester. The enclosed terrace sits at the front of the penthouse with gated access. The apartment itself has two bedrooms and two bathrooms with 75 square metres. The building is situated directly behind Market Street, a stone's throw away from Debenhams. The premium location and high end finish of this property is what truly makes it stand out from the other penthouses in Manchester.
2. LOCAL Blackfriars Penthouse
£450,000 (off-market) 80 square metres 1-bedroom
“The next level in luxe city living, Local Blackfriars is a gated community comprising 380 apartments, townhouses and penthouses across two striking towers. These are architecturally blended into a Grade II-listed former public house – the Black Friar – which has been repurposed as a gateway entrance. A substantial communal garden space is complemented by second-to-none amenities that include a 24/7 concierge service, bistro, bar, gymnasium, yoga and dance studio, cinema room and fully equipped laundrette.
Local Blackfriars’ location raises the bar for luxury residential developments. Just five minutes’ walk from Manchester’s bustling shopping district – Selfridges, Harvey Nichols, the deathlessly hip Northern Quarter – and the glossy nightlife of Deansgate and Spinningfields.”
The one-bedroom penthouse apartment at LOCAL Blackfriars is incredible. The apartment spans two levels across 80 square metres. The upper level is an open-plan pod with floor to ceiling windows, trendy industrial style exposed concrete and two large terraces; one with stunning city views and the other looks across to the Pennines. There is also a full-length balcony overlooking the city to the lower level as well.
Underfloor heating to both floors and an entirely marble bathroom are just two of it’s upgraded features. The apartment has a host of bespoke specifications making it a unique opportunity within the development. At an off-market price of around £450,000 with planning permission in place to convert the upper level into a second bedroom, this would add another £200,000 in value to the property.
