Salford Quays is conveniently located for one of Europe’s largest employment and business hubs – Trafford Park – where over 40,000 people are employed. Salford itself is set to grow significantly in the coming years, with population growth expected to be higher than Greater Manchester, the Northwest and national averages up to 2025. There are similar strong forecasts for economic growth. According to Halifax, Salford was the biggest property hotspot of 2015, with the number of property sales jumping by 23% compared to the previous year.

A major infrastructure boost benefiting the area has recently been announced with the Government giving the green light to a new £350 million Metrolink line, providing a direct link to the Trafford Centre, a popular shopping destination. The route, with six new stops, will run from the existing Pomona station and is part of a £1.5 billion expansion programme that will see the Metrolink network double in size.

The BBC’s move to MediaCityUK, home of the creative and digital businesses including the BBC and ITV, sparked a demand that now sees Salford as one of the UK’s foremost property hotspots.

Now, MediaCityUK is set to double in size with planning approved for up to ten new buildings with a development value of more than £1 billion, creating hundreds of new jobs for the area. The expansion will include new TV and studio space, shops and offices and a new 330 bed hotel.
