A great place to live

Verified Resident

Review Date Sep 2020

I live in the south tower which is the tallest building in Manchester. The building design is superb offering various sizes of apartment. The building feels like a 5 star hotel and this is highlighted by the lobby area which includes various seating areas.

The highlight of living in Deansgate Square is the amenities and in particular – ‘The Club’. This is the communal building at the centre of Deansgate Square. This building includes a 2 story gym, pool, jacuzzi, sports hall, massage room and access to the rooftop gardens which can be used for social gatherings.

The building staff are highly professional and friendly.

Since moving in to Deansgate Square I have been impressed with all aspects of the complex and would recommend it as a place to live.

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

The area is ideally located. It is located approximately 3minutes (by foot) away from deansgate station. It is a 5 minute walk to the heart of Spinningfields.

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

Due to the development being brand new it doesn’t appear to be on google maps yet. As such delivery drivers / uber drivers are struggling to locate us.

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

The have been some minor issues with hot water / wind noise.

Best flat(s) in Manchester!

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Sep 2020

Deansgate square is simply amazing, inside and out. As soon as you enter Manchester you can see the 4 massive high rises standing strong. They look visually amazing and we are proud to be able to point and say “we live there!”.

The facilities are endless, a swimming pool, state of the art gym, tea room!? You literally don’t need to leave the site at all, everything is here.

The management is amazing, nothing is too much trouble. The Conceirge team, especially in south tower make everything run so smoothly.

Our landlords (although private) are amazing also, if only everyone’s landlords were as nice as ours.

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

Everything you need is on site, gym, swimming pool, tea room, sports hall, social lounge, 24hr Conceirge. However, there are myriads of other offerings just on your doorstep. Deansgate is a 2 minute walk of which the world is your oyster, shops & restaurants galore.

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

My only concern before moving into somewhere like this was feeling out of place, with these kind of flats I assumed people would treat other people differently. However, I was completely wrong. Everyone is amazing, don’t worry about it.

What is the best feature of your home:

The views, the flat is amazing but being able to look out onto Manchester’s ever expanding skyline every morning is a true blessing.

Great area and location and development

Review Date Sep 2020

development is great. Amazing gym and pool. Shame covid had to limit usage. The gym hall is always booked though so a better booking system is needed. Lifts are really fast which is great. Receptionists are lovley. Delivery instructions are a bit weird given the developer has blocked off the road and expect us to coordinate when furniture will be delivered

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

Really nice area. Close to local supermarkets but would wish there was a closer megastore

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

the building rocks and becomes creaky in the wind. It is by design, but quite loud

What is the best feature of your home:

living room area is great. Lots of sunlight and space

Review Date Sep 2020

The development is great. There isn’t a downfall for me. The facilities are 10/10, great staff, safety, people etc. Couldn’t recommend it higher. The location is the best feature of the apartment.

The only suggestion would be integrated AC but not essential.

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

Great area. Easy access to all stations / shops / bars etc. It’s great.

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

Non ac

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

Quickly and effectively. We have had 2 minor problems but these were resolved smoothly.

Stunning development, not without its issues

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Sep 2020

The building itself, as well as the amenities, are absolutely beautiful – designed with care. Building management seems to be reasonably well put together in most cases, with a few hiccups here-and-there.

The apartments themselves are also high-quality, quite satisfied overall.

That said, when I got my “welcome pack/document” detailing how to best use the apartment, they’ve mentioned that you cannot switch away from ScottishPower, so I didn’t. I’ve then received a £580 bill from them, for about 40 days of usage, and took weeks to sort out, only to realize that legally, you can move providers whenever you want.

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

The area appears to be very safe, close to the city. That said, we’re just a couple minutes away from a few areas not so nice, like Hulme park and the plethora of council houses.

There’s also quite a bit of active construction going on, as well as a highway, so noise might be an issue for one when the windows are open.

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

Switch away from ScottishPower.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

Reasonably quickly, although there weren’t a lot of issues.

Will be fantastic

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Sep 2020

The development will be something spectacular. Sadly, it isn’t there yet – the surrounding areas are a building site still. The club facilities are fantastic – we have access to a professional two floor gym, full size residential swimming pool, but our main concierge connecting building is still being built, meaning we have a much longer walk to use the facilities.
The garden is massive and beautifully kitted out.
Flats are far too warm – they should have AC throughout.
Buildings are amazing! When finished, this will be something amazing! Very excited to see the outcome

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

No local grocery store, good walks by canal

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

How hot the flats get, how light the bedroom is

What is the best feature of your home:

Floor-to-ceiling windows, neff appliances, the club facilities.

Exceptional modern apartments in the heart of Manchester City Centre

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Sep 2020

The development is extremely modern and high-tech, making the property worth its price. Also, the amenities is worth the extra fortune each month.

Building management is of a good service, everyone at the concierge is always on hand to help with whatever is needed.

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

The area is extremely close to the city centre therefore, there’s plenty to do on your doorstep. The main issue would be congregations of young adults who don’t live in the property. Although they don’t cause harm it tarnished the value slightly of the prestigious building.

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

One thing we wish to have been informed on is the noise from labour across Deansgate Square’s complex throughout the day

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

Extra storage space in the one bed apartments as our storage cupboard is full.

Living the high life in Manchester

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Sep 2020

The design and interior of the properties is finished to a very high standard and the properties are very appealing, being modern and convenient. Facilities inside the property are also finished to a high standard and are super modern – the wine fridge and LED lighting in the kitchens of each apartment are particularly nice touches. There is a spectacular gym which I must say is like a country club – there truly is a focus on health and wellness which I absolutely love about this development.

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

Tenants and staff are very friendly and the location is great as you are right on Deansgate meaning you have shops, restaurants and transport links right on your door step!

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

I wish I was made more aware about the building work that is still going on as it is extremely noisy.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

The service is not good enough. Agents have been the only downside to living in this development.

A variety of facilities provided. Spectacular and modern design of the apartments, overlooking the nearby areas and a nice view of the city. Good management of the place, and the people working there are really helpful! Most importantly, it’s quite and homey.

Good location, there’re restaurants and shops nearby.

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

There is a gym! and a roof garden. The rest met my expectations.

The design and layout. Though the furniture seems to be not long-lasting.
