High Definition – spearheading a city living renaissance

2022 is set to be the year where city living makes a real comeback and High Definition will define the future of an aspirational urban lifestyle.

Located in the creative hub of Media City, High Definition is perfectly positioned to meet the rising demand for high-quality urban living we’re already seeing. Offering access to quayside living and the award-winning green spaces of Media City, alongside the fantastic employment opportunities with major employers such as the BBC and ITV, High Definition is a class apart.

The development offers all the traditional benefits of a slick city apartment but with lessons from the pandemic built in too. Co-working spaces are ideally suited to the new hybrid working policies adopted by many companies.

A stylish pavilion and Club HD lounge provide the places that help transform a development into a thriving community. And its location by the quayside means High Definition provides access to exceptional public spaces and watersport activities which help those living here prioritise their health and wellbeing.

In its conception and design, High Definition is forward looking. An exemplar of the future of high quality-city life. It’s because of this that the development is perfect not only for owner occupiers but for property investors too.
