This should be a great addition to the Quay's, looking at the City Loft's scheme in the Prince's Dock L'pool,this will be just as good.

Thanks cotton but I think those renders are the previous version. The latest is the one on my initial post which are much, much better looking although the basic shape will be similar. There used to be a larger, daytime one knocking around but like I say its disppeared since Citylofts changed their website.

All cityloft building in Manchester have been class so far - Chruch St, 38 High Street and Vantage Quay. I'm sure this one'll be just as good.

Here we are.



The quality of design evident in City Lofts Salford Quays exterior, full-height glazing, aluminium panels, slate walls, white render and timber cladding is carried through to the attention to detail within the apartments themselves.

The majority of apartments have south or west facing living rooms, with balconies to most with dockside elevations and, elsewhere, floor to ceiling windows. Six top floor apartments have access to extensive roof terraces.
Salford Quays is firmly established as a cultural hub of the north-west – a critical mass of art, entertainment, retail and leisure venues in a thriving waterfront quarter. Now two linked 19 and 9-storey residential towers, developed by City Loft Developments and designed by architects Conran & Partners, bring that confident landscape to life for people who want to live independent, high-energy lives against a background of light and space, air and water.
This should be a very nice development enhanced by quality cladding too, by the sounds of things.

There should be quite a nice new cluster on that side of the water when all three NV's and this are complete, and assuming that the Harbour City towers are approved.

I've just been reading the planning application and it does look quite well thought out. Inspired by Milans Pirelli Building and Paris Tour Montparnasse, apparently. 61m tall, half way between Sovereign Point and the NVs.

Sales Office

The citylofts sales office onsite is almost complete. I was only down the Quays 2 weeks ago and noticed that groundworks had started. The site is coming on well with the sales office being worked on and the citylofts boarding is now wrapped around the site.

Oh and I noticed we have a 2nd crane going up at Old Trafford.

Don't mind that new render.

There was a half page ad in todays Sunday Times announcing first phase released for sale on 16th June. I don't know the area at all, but with the volume of apartments going up it must be developing quite rapidly.

I think it will turn out better than the NV's... I just really despise white cladding, it looks so cheap

I like the way all these building are going up one at time. You have the Nav's going up one by and just when you its all over another its just about to pop up next to it. Keeps it all intresting, lets just hope it keeps going.

Always thought the NVs were among the better finished and detailed of our recent buildings, apart from their backs which are just bland.

Yeah, I like the way that all the building projects are just so different from each other. Makes it interesting to look at.
