Trailblazing property developers Capital & Centric recently gave locals first dibs at PHOENIX, the first apartment building to be completed in the up and coming Piccadilly East neighbourhood.
Those who move into Phoenix will also be the first ever residents of the much anticipated new neighbourhood - and due to such high demand they have been forced to announce a THIRD open day at the location.
Investors will be banned from mopping up apartments when Phoenix finally completes in the spring – something C&C also did when they launched their adjacent Crusader Mill development in 2017.
The firm recently released their vision for the area which is fast becoming Manchester’s most sought after destination – which will eventually be home to further apartments, as well as independent cafes and bars.
New ‘first look’ images have been revealed of the completed show apartment.
Designed by award winning architects shedkm, the new images show how the raw industrial elements, including exposed concrete and pipework, sit alongside stylishly minimal interiors in the ten-storey building.
The best thing about Phoenix is that it is also part of the Help to Buy scheme, meaning buyers will only need to find 80% of the apartment price.
Where people aren’t using Help to Buy, Capital & Centric are taking no deposits on exchange. Prices start at £195,000 and the apartments will be ready as soon as May 2020.
Speaking about the development, co-founder of C&C, Tim Heatley said: "Piccadilly East is soon going to rival the Northern Quarter and Ancoats as the place to be.
"The area’s already become a hub for independents, like Track Brewery, Chapeltown Picture House and Cultureplex, and it’s a great time to invest in one of the City’s most hotly anticipated neighbourhoods.
"But rather than investors being the ones to benefit from buying early, we’re giving that opportunity just to the people that want to live here."
Sheona Southern, managing director of Marketing Manchester said: “It’s no secret that Manchester City Centre has flourished in recent years and a big part of that has been investment in building new neighbourhoods where people want to live, work and socialise.
"Piccadilly East occupies an area of the city that has been unloved for years and, especially being on the doorstep of Piccadilly Station, it’s undoubtably one to watch in terms of the next place to be.”
The one and two bed apartments on Chapeltown Street will be on average 35% larger than other properties in Manchester. Over half will benefit from spacious balconies, with roof gardens a striking feature on the top floor.
Residents of PHOENIX will also be part of the community forming at neighbouring Crusader Mill with access to its lush, green courtyard, fire pits, barbeques and WiFi. They will also share Crusader's 24/7 concierge and be dog friendly.
The £25m development will be CAPITAL&CENTRIC's first residential development to complete in the city.
