Duet Salford Quays Voted Best Residential Development in the UK
Situated in the heart of MediaCityUK, residents rated the development across five categories including facilities, management, location, design and value, scoring the development a total of 4.87 out of 5, the highest of any residential development in the UK.
The build-to-rent scheme is the latest joint project from Moorfield managed funds, developer Glenbrook Property and specialist rental operator Allsop, and is one of Moorfield’s three More. ‘Superenting’ developments, which seek to provide residents with a superior rental experience.
The highly praised development, which spans two 15-storey towers, offers a total of 270 one, two and three-bedroom apartments, with both furnished and unfurnished options. The development also boasts a host of unrivalled perks for residents, including conference facilities, a state of the art gym and fitness centre with access to yoga and personal training sessions, residents’ lounge area, and communal garden spaces with waterside views – not to mention, the property is entirely pet friendly.
The building itself was rated an impressive 4.9 out of 5 by its residents, whilst the provided management services including 24-hour concierge, security staff and resident services scored an incredible 4.95 out of 5.
The development, which is a stone’s throw from the BBC and ITV, with excellent transport links to Manchester city centre, also received a near-perfect rating for its location. Thanks to its prime position overlooking the waterfront and with a host of desirable amenities nearby - including 15 bars and restaurants, six leisure facilities, four shopping outlets, a theatre, cinema, and nursery – the location was rated 4.95 out of 5.
Marc Gilbard, CEO of Moorfield Group, comments: “We’re pleased to hear that our residents at Duet think so highly of the development, it’s operations and approach to hospitality. When we first delved into the build-to-rent market, a huge amount of thought and time went into developing brand standards that we wanted our schemes to adhere to. These standards are fundamental to ensuring a certain level of quality is assured across both design and operations at all of our developments and it’s something we take great pride in; so it’s hugely gratifying to hear that these efforts are recognised by our residents.
“The fantastic team at Glenbrook has played a key role in the detail-driven development of the Duet towers and Allsop’s team continue to drive the success of the development through exceptional operational management.”
Dougie Orton-Wade, General Manager at Duet Salford Quays, adds: “Quality and community is what we strive for here at Duet. A great deal of care and hard work went into the development of the Duet building and continues to be invested in its constant improvement and management to ensure residents have the best possible quality of life here and are as happy and comfortable as they can be.”
