MediaCity doesn’t stand still. In just ten years we have become one of the world’s leading media and tech hubs.
In the next few years we’ll cement our position as one of the UK’s leading innovation zones. And in the coming decade a £1bn investment will see MediaCity continue to grow. More workspaces, more new homes, more public and green spaces, increased connectivity and tech infrastructure, more inspirational ways to spend precious downtime.
B5 – Commercial
Plot B5 is a proposed signature office building over 18 storeys with views of the gardens and piazza in the heart of MediaCity. The ground floor will provide for high profile, self-contained entrances and a striking retail arcade.
This iconic building completes the crescent on the waterfront at MediaCity and will provide:
- BCO Grade A commercial offices extending to 296,500 sq ft (27,534 m2).
- Having large, flexible floorplates starting at 25,000 sq ft (2,322 m2) on the lower floors reducing to 15,000 sq ft (1394 m2) on the upper floors, offering opportunities for both large occupiers and medium-sized enterprises.
- Ground floor retail of 8,600 sq ft (800 m2).
- Positioned off the striking pedestrian arcade and designed to provide a key link through the estate, this offers a mix of unit sizes and is a great opportunity for high quality restaurant/café operators — both established brands and niche operators with a unique proposition.
Pre-let opportunities are available on either the whole or a significant part of B5.
C3 – Commercial
The iconic, £140 million (GDV), 11-storey, innovation-led development in prime position opposite ITV and The University of Salford media campus, will be best in class, setting out to achieve Net Zero Carbon development status using the UK Green Building Council (UKGBC) Framework, Well Gold, with the goal of reaching Platinum status as well as the world renowned BREEAM Outstanding recognition. It will further bolster the portfolio of MediaCity’s net zero carbon buildings which currently has the highest cluster in the UK.
The highly sustainable development, designed by Sheppard Robson, with its striking glass and aluminium façade, will deliver a further 263,000 sqft of flexible office space to MediaCity with the potential to host a mixture of large corporates and small to medium sized businesses within its ARRIVE co-working workspace. It will be home to 2,200 people as well as three retail and leisure units, spanning 9,400 sqft across the ground floor, earmarked for independent traders.
The attractive development, will feature green balconies on every other level as well as an outdoor terrace overlooking a new, vast 28,000 sqft landscaped public realm which will maximise biodiversity with pathways and seating areas set within extensive trees, shrubs and herbaceous grasses for workers and the public to enjoy.
In line with its green credentials and focus on health and wellbeing for those that use the space, the development will support sustainable travel initiatives with a 283-capacity safe bike hub with changing facilities.
Pre-let opportunities are available on the whole or a significant part of C3.
C4 – Residential
Located in the heart of MediaCity with easy access to all amenities and transport links, C4 offers an exciting and vibrant place to live.
The form of the building is simple and contemporary; a podium and towers which complement existing designs in the vicinity. The plot features 286 apartments around a public courtyard; 18,300 sq ft (1,700 m2) of offices for small businesses and 35,500 sq ft (3,300 m2) of live/work accommodation.
C5 – Leisure
MediaCity is already acknowledged as an exciting and vibrant destination — not only to those already working and living here but also to the wide range of visitors who come to enjoy the regular events, or who just come to relax in the waterside environment.
C5 purposely creates a sense of intrigue and then reveals its function and purpose. The 11,000 sq ft (1,030 m2) plot is to be used for street food markets and events set within a public square.
The entrances are understated, and the internal spaces feature subtle architectural gestures, such as roof lights.
C6 – Residential
Plot C6 is the iconic gateway to MediaCity, particularly when travelling on the extensive Metrolink network.
It will deliver 477 high quality apartments and townhouses and there will be a range of amenities — as would be expected from one of the most significant Private Rented Sector opportunities, available at the centre of a new residential community.
The plot also frames the public square in C5, featuring 9,700 sq ft (900 m2) of retail and leisure space.
D4 – Commercial
Occupying a strategically important second gateway site into MediaCity, the design of the building responds to the radial parameters of the masterplan with the northern edge offering a striking LED digital wall onto Broadway. The plot features 33,000 sq ft (3,050 m2) of offices suitable for small businesses; 10,700 sq ft (1,000 m 2) of live/work accommodation and a multi-storey car park with 1,052 spaces.
D5 – Residential
Located at the meeting point of the Metrolink and Broadway, D5 is a highly visible and iconic opportunity.
Designed as one of the best Private Rented Sector opportunities, D5 extends to 450 apartments in two towers with a private courtyard in between; 18,300 sq ft (1,700 m2) of retail and leisure space at ground level and a multi-storey car park with 260 spaces.
