I have found a place I can call home.

Review Date Oct 2020

I must say this is hands-down the best apartment building ever. I had lived in many nice apartments in London over the years but none quite like this. The building is brand-new and looks stylish and spotless. There is a fantastic Clubhouse available exclusively for residents should you feel like hanging out with friends, playing pool table or simply chilling. Residents have also access to a compact yet functional gym. I have found a place I can call home!

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

The area in which this outstanding development is located is without a doubt the one reason why you should move here tomorrow. The Whitmore Collection is perfectly positioned in the heart of the city of Birmingham, the Jewellery Quarter. This area is vibrant, young and stunning. I’m in love with the marvellous water canals, with the countless choices of restaurants and bars as well as the modern and immaculate architecture. Everything is within walking distance, including the enchanted Brindleyplace, which is exactly what I wanted.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

At risk of sounding like a broken record, I’m going to once again praise the neighbourhood. Safe, full of amenities, lively and clean. In short, extraordinarily charming.

What is the best feature of your home:

I genuinely didn’t expect the development to be located in such a strategically extraordinary area. There is an infinite amount of amenities within walking distance. My absolute favourite has to be the enviable canals.

Bless you Andrea,
As I read, I found myself thinking, “Best apartment building ever? Ever, Ever?…Ever, Ever? Wow, I wanna live here!”
-Reality check- I work here.
And just as you call us Home, we consider you Family.
Thank you.

Ultra-modern city centre home

West Tower is an ultra-modern development with a lot of convenient facilities and services. The staff are very friendly and helpful, making you feel very welcome. The apartments are all very cleverly designed and equipped with high spec fittings and technology. The provided furniture is of high quality and seems very durable. My particular one-bedroom apartment, which is the smallest available size, offered surprisingly more space and storage opportunities than I initially expected, and for the price, is definitely a winner! I am very excited for the amenities that are due to open in early 2020, which will surely improve my experience at West Tower even further!

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

West Tower is very conveniently situated right next to all available transport links, making it easy to move around Manchester City centre. The development is situated between my favourite areas/ neighbourhoods in the city – First Street and the Castlefield Canals. Within 10-20 minutes you can reach anywhere in town by foot.
The only downside is, although you may get a prime view over the iconic Deansgate, the street never sleeps. If you keep the windows closed, you can enjoy peace and quiet, however with the windows open, you will often hear traffic, trains/trams and ongoing construction work.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

If possible/affordable, I would suggest to move higher up in the building to avoid noise from the streets.

Highly recommended place to live in Manchester City Centre

I have lived here for nearly 2 and 1/2 years and I absolutely love it!

South facing riverside view, pet friendly for my doggie, gym and prompt maintenance (thanks Terry!)
FOH team are absolutely brilliant too (Carl, John, Martin & Trudy)

Option to personalise the apartment so feels like my own home with furniture options (fully, semi, non furnished), can put up art/ pictures etc.

Beautiful riverside views with lots of wildlife which is unusual for the city centre.

Yes, there is quite a bit of building work going on around here at the moment but having seen the development plans (Factory arts/theatre centre etc, canal walkway) this is definitely going to be the area to live in in the not too distant future and only 5/10mins walk from Deansgate/city centre.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Plenty of good places to eat and drink nearby, plus local convenience stores (Tesco, Sainsbury’s, M&S)

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

There is quite a bit of building work going on in the area at the moment but after seeing the developments over the past 2 years and having lived in Manchester City centre for over 10years I think this is something you will experience anywhere in the city centre at the moment but this is definitely going to be the area to live in really soon (although it counts as Salford 😉

If there is one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be:

The only thing I would say is as it’s by the riverside it can get a bit cold in the winter if there is bad weather so maybe proper radiators rather than electric panel heaters

Great place to live!

The design and interior are absolutely beautiful! Staff who work there onsite are SUPER friendly and the communal areas are always kept clean and tidy. They collect parcels on my behalf as I work away a lot and keep them safe for me until I’m home which is an invaluable service! Only reason I didn’t give 5 stars is due to when moving in, we were showed visitor parking bays but once we moved in they told us that actually we aren’t allowed visitors to park and we pay a lot of money for the car parking space to not be allowed visitors. However, this is only minor as everything else is great!

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Dislike no parking if you wish to have visitors. However Town is only a 20 minute walk away so great location!

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

I wish I had known we were not allowed visitors parking. Other than this, everything is perfect and the purpose built flats have thick walls so we never hear our neighbours beside or above us!

Best place ever

I have lived in different rented flats in Manchester and I have to say that the slate yard is just the best.
It is a very nice place that is located next to the calm Irwell river (I always sit on the sofa and stare at the river! It makes me really calm and the sofa is way too comfy!) We’ve got 24/7 security and the staff and neighbours are so friendly and helpful. The design is simple and good, which is my ideal interior design style. Gym is also provided and the maintenance team is the best! When something went wrong, they just come and fix them as soon as possible every time. Lastly, the common area is soooo good!!! I really love the style that I can both work and relax there.
The only cons is traffic. It should be the reason of this is a new developed zone so the buses are not fully developed (I mean the variety of bus routes), but there’s a train station next to us.
In large, everything’s good and it’s so convenient to buy food and hang out. It’s a very good experience to live in there

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Good location that I can walk to Selfridges and good variety of restaurants around here. Marks and Spencer’s and coop are just 5 minutes walk from the slate yard. But traffic is still a problem. Traffic jams in peak hours as one of the highway entrances is jus next to us. And if there’s more buses to the Chinatown, the university, Piccadilly and salford would be way better.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

None. Here’s just perfect for me.
