Cinema room and gym add finishing touches to Salford’s newest waterside community

The final phase of the “oasis”-like waterside Dock 5 development in Ordsall, Salford, has come on the market, with 121 new apartments with a private cinema room and onsite gym available.

ForLiving, a Salford-based developer which pumps profits back into the local area, has opened lettings for the final phase of the 394-home scheme on the banks of the River Irwell.

The new facilities add to the existing co-living spaces including a fully accessible lounge, co-working space and kitchen.

The final phase of the scheme has also revealed the expansive inner courtyard, providing the perfect green space for relaxing, socialising and letting pets play.

Residents have already been getting to know their neighbours through a series of wellbeing events and activities being planned in the space throughout the year. A Pride party, summer BBQ and yoga sessions have all been enjoyed by residents over the summer.

Mark Edwards, Strategic Lead at ForLiving, said: “We’re really excited to see the final residents move in and join the new community here at Dock 5.

“The cinema room where residents will be able to chill with friends and gym will allow residents to get the headspace they need, when they need it.

“There are also perks like parcel lockers, bike storage and pet-walking services. We want residents to enjoy hassle-free living in a beautiful waterside location they can call home.”

The building now includes 394 apartments and townhouses, alongside multiple shared spaces for residents to come together, work, exercise and enjoy social events.

Residents also have 24/7 access to a concierge service for cleaning, dog-walking and other advice via an exclusive residents’ app.

Just a short walk or cycle ride down the river from Manchester city centre, the £53m riverside development is ten minutes from MediaCityUK and Exchange Quay tram stop.

“Our fantastic location means residents experience the best of two cities – you can make the most of vibrant city life in Salford and Manchester and open green spaces in the Dock 5 courtyard and the Ordsall area more widely,” Mark added.

Residents can also be confident that their home makes a positive impact. Any profits from Dock 5 are reinvested into the local community, with fighting homelessness being a key priority for ForLiving.

Rents at Dock 5 range from £850 for a one-bedroom to £1,100 for a two-bedroom apartment, making the homes more affordable than city-centre living.

Interested flat-hunters are being encouraged to book viewings now to avoid disappointment.

Mark added: “Manchester and Salford are still seeing high demand for accommodation from creatives and professionals, university grads and local people, so we’re so proud to be opening the final phase of Dock 5. We’re helping provide more much-needed affordable and quality, modern homes.”
