McGoff completes £85m Salford flats

The McGoff Group has completed Downtown, its £85m apartment development on the banks of the River Irwell in Salford.

The 374 flats are located on Woden Street, which sits on the border of Salford and Castlefield, across six blocks designed by Leach Rhodes Walker Architects.

The project was built by McGoff Construction, part of the McGoff Group. Partners during the build programme included Heyrod Construction and HE Simm.

All the properties were sold off-plan, to a mix of owner-occupiers and overseas buyers after being marketed in Hong Kong, Singapore and Dubai through Alliance Investments.

The first phase of Downtown, totalling 164 apartments, completed in April 2019.  Phase two totals 210 flats, with Manchester law firms Fieldfisher and Beyond Corporate advising on the sales.

Paul Danks, group sales director at McGoff Group, said: “Downtown has been an incredible success story for the group, both in terms sales and the faster than anticipated build programme, which meant the development was completed approximately 14 months ahead of schedule.

“Following the completion of phase two, we are very much looking forward to our continued involvement in the residential asset management of this exciting building, ensuring our residents truly enjoy their stay at Downtown.”

The development includes a 24-hour concierge, gym, thermal suite, media room, postal room, private dining and business centre. It also has undercroft parking, landscaped gardens, residents’ roof garden and terraces.
