The Surrenden Invest team is delighted to share news of our latest development – Ancoats Gardens in Manchester. While full details won’t be released until next week, we couldn’t help but share a few choice snippets about this exciting new investment opportunity.

Ancoats has everything going for it as a property investment hotspot. Market forces are combining to make it THE place to focus on in Manchester right now. When it came to our latest, innovative property launch in the city, we knew that no other location would suffice! The development is going to bring a new standard of urban living to Manchester – and Ancoats is the ideal location to push forward such innovation.”

It’s fair to say that some developments are more interesting than others – and Ancoats Gardens is right up there with some of the most exciting that we’ve worked on. The apartments themselves are simply outstanding, with huge ceilings and an industrial chic vibe that is perfectly attuned to what renters in the local area are seeking. Then there are the on-site amenities. We can’t share full details for another few days, but we can say that the rooftop area is going to be incredible! We’ll reveal more later this week…
The local area is also fantastic. Over the past couple of years, Ancoats has been flagged up by the New York Times as one of the coolest places to live in the UK. On this side of the pond, the Times voted it the second coolest location in the country. So what is it that makes this area of Manchester so exciting? The expert team here at Surrenden Invest have had Ancoats on our radar for quite some time. Bordering the popular Northern Quarter, Ancoats has for some time been drawing in Manchester’s creative types, making a name for itself as the city’s most dynamic, creative district. If you want to start an energetic, disruptor business in Manchester, you head to Ancoats to do it.
The area benefits from a vast amount of home-grown talent, with upwards of 50% of Manchester’s graduates choosing to stay in the city after they leave university. The city is second only to London in terms of the percentage of the UK’s total graduates who work there, according to Centre for Cities. These talented young people have helped Ancoats to develop a distinctive vibe that sets it apart from other city centre destinations. Artisan eateries and independent coffee shops have sprung up to meet demand, creating a unique and inviting area that appeals to young professionals looking to get the most out of the urban lifestyle.
All these independent businesses and SMEs have created a fertile breeding ground for success. Deliveroo and Uber both call Ancoats home. Meanwhile the vast NOMA development – the largest regeneration site in the North West of England and the largest development in the UK outside the South East of England – is creating a superb new business and technology hub that will drive further success. The £800 million project will create a long-lasting legacy from which all those living in Ancoats will have the opportunity to benefit.
Excellent connectivity rounds off the area’s attractions. Surrenden Invest’s new Ancoats project, for example, is just a seven-minute walk from Manchester Victoria train and Metrolink station. Manchester Piccadilly, the city’s most connected railway station, is ten minutes away on foot. Meanwhile, Exchange Square and Piccadilly Gardens Metrolink stations are ten minutes and 12 minutes away respectively.
Ancoats’ myriad attractions make it a superb choice for those looking to live in one of the most vibrant and interesting parts of Manchester. And with the launch of an exciting new residential housing development just around the corner, Ancoats is about to become even more attractive…
