The creative north
Living at the centre of it all. Our High Definition development in Manchester's Media City is one of the UK's most exciting centres for the digital and creative sectors.
At the centre of it all
Located in the centre of Manchester’s Media City, our High Definition development is only a stone’s throw from the businesses leading the charge for the North’s creative industry.
Originally starting as one of the world’s largest industrial ports, which connected Salford and Manchester to the rest of the world, Salford Quays has continued to evolve.
Famously, the BBC and ITV set up shop in 2010/11, making Media City the number one producer of TV programmes in the UK.
Since then, many other businesses have followed suit and Media City now hosts an explosion of digital start-ups, global brands and leading media companies. High profile names such as Kelloggs, Vodafone and Ericsson work alongside 250+ local businesses, making Media City one of the country’s leading creative hubs.
Over the next decade, it’s estimated that a further £1bn will be invested in Media City. The delivery of a second phase of development will see Media City double in size, bringing with it a raft of leading and burgeoning creative enterprises looking to employ the best creative and digital talent from across the North. With more than 7,500 already living, working and studying in Media City, it’s clear that it will continue to be one of the UK’s most exciting centres for the digital and creative sectors.
Living in Media City at High Definition will bring all this opportunity right to your doorstep, offering you the chance to rub shoulders and exchange ideas with both globally renowned brands and thriving local independents.
Media City’s five acres of public space overlooking the water creates a welcoming natural environment for everyone to meet and mingle in and you will be there with some of the country’s best digital and creative talent. It could be those working in Dock 10 (the leading TV studio facility in the UK and home to the BBC Philharmonic orchestra), or it could be with new friends and colleagues who spend their days innovating in The Landing (home to 120 start-ups and small tech-related businesses). For anyone looking to be right at the centre of some of the UK’s most exciting industries, living in High Definition at Media City is hard to top.
