All of the flats within the £32m X1 The Plaza in Manchester’s Ancoats have sold within a month of being launched to the market, with five townhouses remaining available at the scheme, according to Knight Knox.
Made up of 196 one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments, in addition to seven three-bedroom townhouses, the £32m development in Great Ancoats Street will begin construction in January 2016, with completion expected in autumn 2017.
Amenities within the 152,573 sq ft scheme include secure bicycle storage, an on-site gym and private parking. Externally, residents will have a private landscaped courtyard, winter gardens, private balconies and garden terraces.
Knight Knox said that the sales at X1 The Plaza were the highest number of apartments in one development the property company has sold in such a time frame.
The development will be let and managed in its entirety by X1 Lettings, while Forrest Construction will act as contractor. DK Architects designed the project.
Other schemes in collaboration with X1 include X1 Media City, a four-phase development, and X1 Eastbank, a scheme comprising of 111 apartments located next to X1 The Plaza. Both sites are currently under construction.
Michael Fenlon, sales director at Knight Knox, said: “Such successful sales of apartments in X1 The Plaza is a reflection of the confidence people have in Manchester as a place to invest. The Ancoats area in particular is set to undergo impressive regeneration and expansion over the next five years, and beyond, as the city’s population continues to rise.”
