From a property investment standpoint, this is excellent news. A prime location, backed by a superb quality build, in an area packed with potential for capital gains thanks to the extensive regeneration work taking place, is the ideal combination for those looking to profit from buy-to-let.
The local area features a host of key developments, including the University of Salford and the Crescent District. The Greengate regeneration is reviving 13 hectares, in order to reconnect the historic centre of Salford with Manchester’s modern, vibrant city centre. Meanwhile, Irwell River Park is creating an international waterfront destination that will benefit from a range of environmental and access improvements, creating opportunities for sustainable transport, as well as commercial and residential development.
In addition, the Bridgewater canal corridor will feature the restoration of key heritage sites, as well as public realm and access improvements, along with new residential, commercial and leisure amenities. On the commercial side of things, Digital Village is home to a new business development that will mix historic features like Ordsall Hall with modern economic opportunities. Business, creativity and leisure opportunities are also blended at the nearby Soapworks. Then there’s the tri-modal inland port facility and distribution park development known as Port Salford… whichever way you turn, Middlewood Plaza is at the heart of a prime regeneration location that clearly marks the future direction of the Greater Manchester area.
