In May 2020 McGoff Construction completed the build ofDowntown, its £85m 374 Manhattan-inspired apartment development on the banks of the River Irwell in Salford, 14 months ahead of schedule. Located on Woden Street, the development was designed by Leach Rhodes Walker Architects and built by McGoff Construction, part of the McGoff Group. Partners during the build programme included Heyrods and HE SIMM.
Right from the start, Downtown has been a huge success for the McGoff Group, with all properties sold off-plan. The range of one, two and three bedroom apartments, combined with its convenient location on the Salford and Manchester border, resulted in high demand for the properties from overseas investors, with the sales secured in Hong Kong, Singapore and Dubai through Alliance Property. UK investors as well as owner-occupiers keen to reside at the city centre’s most desirable residential address also snapped up the apartments.
Downtown is an iconic building in Manchester’s skyline featuring six statement blocks, interlinked, with each boasting a stunning exterior that has been cloaked with a glistening façade of gold coloured panels. View the development video below;
