Select Property, a leading property developer, operator and investment specialist, has launched One Port Street – a landmark residential destination in the heart of Manchester’s vibrant Northern Quarter with construction due to begin imminently.
Construction is due to begin in early 2023, the development process will create at least 59 jobs and bring an estimated £28.07 million of economic impact to the city by the point of completion. The construction process will also provide the opportunity for new training and apprenticeship opportunities for local people.
Comprising 477 premium apartments, it will be the first development in Select Property’s flagship residential brand the ‘Prestige Collection’, which centres around high-quality amenities and resident experience. Apartments range from one-bedroom to three-bedrooms.
Located in Manchester’s world-class creative district, the Northern Quarter, known globally for its street art, eclectic food scene and support for local businesses, it was recently named by TimeOut as one of the ‘World’s Coolest Neighbourhoods 2022’. It also neighbours the popular area of Ancoats – named ‘Foodie Neighbourhood of the Year 2022’ – and is just a short walk to Manchester Piccadilly station and the popular Arndale shopping centre.
Launching One Port Street – and our Prestige Collection – marks the culmination of decades’ of experience across the UK’s residential market, creating compelling places to live. One Port Street harnesses that knowledge to create the ultimate residential offer, and there is no better city to do it than Manchester. Once complete, the site will not only deliver for its residents, but it will bring greater value for the wider city too, creating an inviting neighbourhood with more green, public spaces and incorporating sustainability measures that will have a lasting positive impact on Manchester and its people for years to come.Adam Price, CEO of Select Property
With a focus on welcoming hospitality and outstanding quality, One Port Street will redefine city centre living providing the amenities of a luxury five-star hotel and the exclusivity of a private members’ club, giving residents the opportunity to socialise in any of the extensive communal areas, or allowing the privacy to enjoy the surroundings alone.
Great care has been taken to ensure that One Port Street becomes a green gateway to the city with significant planting to create over 22,000 sq ft of public green space helping to create a better connection to the Northern Quarter, Ancoats and Piccadilly, as well as promoting greener travel with EV charging points and cycle storage.
Designed by renowned architecture firm, SimpsonHaugh, the 33-storey One Port Street gives a nod to Manchester’s industrial history with the interior design taking inspiration from warehouse and loft conversions without the compromise on quality and layout. The design will blend elegant style with urban renewal and embrace raw architectural elements including wood, metal, stone and fire.
One Port Street will become as synonymous with the Northern Quarter as Beetham Tower has become for Deansgate. Celebrating its neighbourhood in full, the building has been designed to fuse modern luxury living and all the trappings that brings, such as a stunning pool with urban contemporary loft-apartments that Manchester, Brooklyn, and Shoreditch are famous for. Once finished, it’ll be the ultimate place for professionals to live. This paragraph needs some work.Ian Simpson, Partner at SimpsonHaugh
The grand reception area will be reminiscent of a hotel, centred around a 360° firepit with concierge service, ensuring a warm welcome for all. There will also be a 2,000 sq ft leisure suite featuring a private swimming pool and spa pool, a state-of-the-art gym and separate fitness studio. With a focus on resident wellbeing, the new destination will also provide two outdoor spaces – a ground floor urban garden with covered seating to be enjoyed all year, and a rooftop garden terrace.
Continuing the five-star experience, residents will also have access to Paganini’s, a seventh floor club lounge with terrace and dry bar available for hire, innovative co-working spaces with private booths, private dining areas available for hire and a premium ‘grab & go’ food and beverage outlet on the ground floor. One Port Street has been designed with the principles of an exclusive private members club, offering opportunities to socialise or enjoy some time alone.
To date, we have sold over £2.6 billion worth of property across multiple brands to our global investors, but One Port Street is our most exciting one yet – situated in the iconic Northern Quarter of the city, it is a bespoke property offering a five-star living experience. As a first-of-its kind destination, One Port Street will quickly become an in-demand postcode in the city and provide a vibrant new residential neighbourhood.Adam Price, CEO of Select Property
