Coming home to the Blackfriars, Manchester’s latest residential apartments, is an experience. Certainly, the entrance alone makes quite the impression, and there is a subtle sense of nostalgia as one walks through the repurposed Grade II-listed entryway, formerly a pub known as the Black Friars. Indeed, a fine conversation piece for first-time guests.
Beyond this entryway are 380 one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments and a private internal garden, designed to capture maximum sunlight. Alongside the terraces, BBQ areas and WiFi-enabled breakout spaces, this contemplative garden is designed to foster a strong sense of community. Residents have, at their doorstep and convenience, access to a fully-equipped gym, cinema room with surround sound and laundrette.
Just five minutes’ walk away is The Lowry Hotel, Harvey Nichols, Selfridges and the main Manchester shopping district, as well as the busy Deansgate with all of the major recognised brands for food and beverage. Manchester Victoria train station and the MEN events arena are also both within a five-minute walk.
