      Brand New Exclusive high-end Apartment Development in Manchester City Centre. Completion Estimated May 2019. The development comprises of 183 units over 8 floors above ground floor shops and commercial units.

      Never before have had the opportunity to offer a development located in the "Absolute Heart of the UK’s most dynamic City Centre".





      Located in the absolute heart of the UK’s most dynamic city, Transmission House is a new, high-quality residential development designed by IDP, one of Manchester’s leading architects and developed by Factory Estates, one of Manchester’s most active developers.

      The development comprises of 183 units over 8 storeys 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 unrivaled 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 strong resale market. There is a choice of Studios, one, two and three bedroom apartments as well as 5 spectacular 3 bedroom penthouses with private garden areas.

      Local property prices are predicted to rise by 19.3% (Savills) during the construction phase of the project giving investors the opportunity to purchase at today’s prices with potential for significant capital growth before completion.

      Apart from the shortage of potential development projects in the M1 postal district, most city centre development are being pre-purchased by Institutional / Private Equity PRS funds providing little or no opportunity for the individual UK buy to let investor to purchase investment property in super-prime locations in this buoyant market.

      The Northern Quarter is home to a significant number of small – medium sized business and independent operators and a growing digital, media and technology based sector, as well as creative and cultural industries.

      The Northern Quarter has seen the number of digital firms located there increase by 70% over 3 years with Manchester recently being crowned the UK’s “capital of start-ups” with over 2000 firms created in the City in the last since March 2015.

      Transmission House is situated in the heart of this vibrant creative hub. Often compared to London and New York’s Soho districts, the Northern Quarter was historically the centre of Manchester’s cotton industry (the first cotton mill in the city was located in what is now the Northern Quarter) with many cotton mills and warehouses located in the area. These days the Northern Quarter is Manchester’s creative district. The area is home to a variety of independent shops, restaurants and art galleries offering art from local and international artists.

      Often described as a village within the city, the neighbourhood is one of the most vibrant and is considered by many to be the most hip neighbourhood in the city centre, resulting in it being one of the city’s most popular residential markets.

      The Government announced in early 2015 that the Northern Quarter would be designated a “Tech Hub”, given the popularity of the area for digital and IT start-up companies. This has firmly established the Northern Quarter as one of the favourite locations in Europe for digital and IT companies to locate to, driving a strong demand for high quality apartments in the neighbourhood to house the growing population of talented young professionals moving to Manchester to work within a digital or creative business.

      Apartment Design Concept

      O’Connor Bowden have worked with Factory Estates on a number of projects over the past years, including the nearby Oxid House development. The team are proud to have produced yet another superbly designed apartment scheme which suits the demands of the city centre market.

      Given the shift in the UK market place for rental properties, IDP architects have been working on designing living spaces that are suitable for exacting demands of the modern city centre rental market.

      Many of the apartments currently constructed in city centres across the UK comes from a previous understanding of what purchasers wanted when buying an apartment to live. This included having a “master bedroom” and smaller secondary bedroom, which is completely at odds with the modern rental market demands.

      A long standing frustration with many city centre residents is the lack of equally sized internal accommodation especially for tenants sharing, the mainstay of the private rental market. The two bedroom apartment designs at Transmission House provide the solution.

      The two bedroom apartments are designed for sharers. Each have equal sized double bedrooms, each with their own en-suite bathroom; a perfect design solution for tenants sharing accommodation. No longer will tenants have to compromise or squabble over a large master bedroom & small en-suite versus a small second bedroom & a large disconnected bathroom. Furthermore the design is combined with the careful selection of contemporary fixtures and fittings that are both appealing to tenants and hard-wearing to ensure low maintenance costs over the long term.

      To set the development apart from its rivals and not just attract, but retain quality tenants, a range of communal features have been included:

      • Internal shared courtyard area for tenants
      • Roof top garden accessibly by all tenants
      • Secure bike store
      • 24/7 Concierge and large, welcoming reception area

      All of these features set the development apart as one of the best developments in the city, in the best location.
