Anaconda Cut, standing at 131 metres tall, making it the tallest building in Salford, has been officially launched.
The 44-storey tower, which features 349 flats, is funded by real estate investment firm, Europa Capital, and is the second tallest Build to Rent tower in the UK after Uncle in London's Elephant & Castle, and Salford's tallest building.
U.S. Build to Rent provider Atlas Residential is managing the development, offering luxury rental accommodation and amenities, pushing the boundaries of those schemes that already exist in the UK, making it far more like something from the hospitality sector.
A foyer with 24 hour hotel style concierge and a mezzanine co-working space sits on the ground floor of the tower along with a resident’s gym offering a variety of HITT workouts and yoga sessions.
The building also has a pet-friendly environment allowing residents to bring their animals along with them and the option to leave them behind with an onsite pet concierge. Parking is situated in the basement over three levels, offering 79 spaces and bicycle storage beneath.
High-level communal roof terraces and seating to relax in has been designed on the 17th floor along with a cinema screening room whilst the entire upper 43rd floor is dedicated to a ‘Sky Lounge’ for all residents to enjoy with unprecedented views over the City of Manchester and stretching as far as the Pennines.
Delivered by Renaker Build Limited, the property is located in the Greengate area on a former disused car park, marking the entry into Salford as you cross the river Irwell from Manchester City Centre and on the western fringe of Media City village.
The wider masterplan for Greengate will see a significant amount of residential developments being delivered over the next decade transforming it into a vibrant new community.
