Located just a short walk across the river from Manchester city centre, the 2nd phase of landlord ForLiving’s £53m Dock 5 development sees the unveiling of 152 more stylish furnished and unfurnished apartments and townhouses.

Named in reference to Salford’s former docklands, the site has opened up and given way to an expansive piazza of landscaped gardens. As well as creating the perfect balance between vibrant city life and open green spaces, the scheme echoes the area’s former glory as Botanical Gardens where fashionable Victorians would visit.

The team at Dock 5 says the green space, combined with its riverside location, will entice residents outside to make the most of long summer evenings spent relaxing and exercising outdoors.

On top of that, Dock 5 is working with local small businesses to run wellbeing events for residents and locals; so far, Yoga Sessions and Prosecco & Pizza Nights have been enjoyed by residents, and BBQ’s are on the cards for the summer.

Dock 5 is also in talks with local attractions in Manchester and Salford, like Ordsall Hall, meaning there will be even more events to look forward to.

Finally, a good work/life balance will be easy for residents to achieve thanks to stylish co-working spaces.

Mark Edwards, Strategic Lead at ForLiving, said: “Throughout Dock 5’s development, our future residents’ wellbeing has been a key focus for us. We’ve really tried to approach it from all angles – whether mental, social or financial – and facilitate that with beautiful surroundings and social events.

“We’ve put people at the heart of every decision we’ve made here, which has helped us add in those extra touches which will make lives easier – like parcel lockers, cleaning services, an on-site gym coming later in the year and even pet-walking services.”

The scheme will be complete by Autumn 2022, bringing with it access to a state-of-the-art gym, a cinema room and dining options.
