Very good

Development is lovely, looks great, is cosy and modern. Looks like it would be a good social place to live. It was great customer service from the development and was very friendly. Explained all the development and prices thoroughly and answered any questions we had.

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

Transport links seem out the way and no restaurants except fast food close. Sainsbury’s is close which is useful.

Convenient location

Verified Resident

Spacious flat that has high quality finishes compared to other in its price range. We moved from the city centre and are now paying less rent but have more space to live in and a much quieter are; it was a win win! The building management are very helpful and are always keeping us up to date with what’s going on and if there are any issues in the flat.

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

Convenient to get into the city centre by walking or bus and there is a great retail park only 5 minute walk away. The nearby canal is relaxing and there is a lot of greenery unlike the city centre.

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

That the internet provided was free! We have a contract with BT that we started just before we moved, but it’s no longer needed.

Great!

Verified Resident

Close to Manchester’ city centre. Nice quiet area, will be even better with the bar and Co-op when they are open.
Apartments are well sound proofed from outside and above/next door.
Will be a nice vibrant place in the summer once full and local amenities are finished.

Amazing property

Verified Resident

Moving into the complex was made effortless and quick. The location is perfect.

So far the property management has been good and we haven’t had enough problems. I really enjoy living in this building and would recommend it.

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

The apartments and surrounding area is beautiful.
Great space to live.
However noise travels through the flats making privacy difficult

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

I wish I knew how badly the sound carried in the flat

Ms Fiona C review

Verified Resident

For my first flat out of uni, Its been amazing! The management has made it a really smooth transition and helped wherever they could! (Going above and beyond what I was lead to expect from landlords whilst at Uni.)

The apartment itself is lovely! Warm, cosy and efficient. It has excellent bathroom facilities and kitchen equipment. I love in particular the oven and hob and built in storage! Super easy to keep clean and given everything is brand new so it’s amazing value for money.

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

I don’t think I can fault the flat.

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

Get living were really transparent and informative before and during our viewing. So I wasn’t surprised about anything when I moved in.

A place to call home

Verified Resident

The apartment is gorgeous, we were hooked the second we walked through the door. All of the appliances and furniture are brand new and top of the line. The building is warm and cosy and boasts fantastic security measures. Multiple keyless locks and a video intercom all come standard which is amazing and really makes you feel secure. On top of this, there is 24-hour security on-site as well as multiple cameras covering entrances. We are 25 minutes walk to the centre of Manchester and 20 minutes walk to Media City so everything you could ever want to experience is practically at your doorstep but you’re far enough away to avoid the crazy rush of the city which is perfect.

Get Living as a company is also amazing, they do everything they can to make sure that you feel welcome and that you can call this place your home, Having spent most of my adult life struggling to deal with slow replying landlords or agencies, its immensely refreshing to be with people that actually seem to care about their tenants and what they feel.

All in all, a fantastic place to call home and without a doubt something to make the most of whilst they are still available.

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

At the moment, the surrounding area is under heavy construction. This is because Salford is really an up and coming area and in the next few months, the place is going to be booming! Currently, there is still plenty to do and everything you could need is within walking distance! 25 minutes to the centre of Manchester and 25 minutes to Media City, this really is the perfect location.

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

Because this is a new establishment, the postal service has a lot of trouble finding the place. Local post is fine but any deliveries made by third parties (UPS, DPD) have a hard time locating the place.

Modern, well located apartments

Verified Resident

I like how the apartment is bright, modern and makes good use of space.
Conveniently located near to Sainsbury’s and will be even better once the on site co-op and brewery which have been promised open.
Downsides are the access to car park via number plate recognition doesn’t always work well. Also the construction on other blocks prevent access to roads nearby and mean there is only one side of the road to get both in and out of the car park.

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

Development is well located, close to the city centre but also far enough away for some peace and in a nice location near the lock.

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

The get living team did a great job of setting up the tenancy and showing us how everything worked on site.

My first 3 months

Verified Resident

As far as my experience with viewings come, none were better than when I saw my current flat at New Maker Yards, however it was the style of the new builds that enticed me to rent this apartment as the design is amazing with a lovely kitchen, and stylish bathrooms. My only concern would be for those who may feel they would struggle with the primary color of white, as the flat is mainly white and can lead to a potential mark or two as your time goes on, I had noticed a few prior to moving in, but I hope the managers have made a note of this, or have an easy fix for when dealing with how to remove them for the next tenant.

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

The area is fantastic and not too far away from the city center which is ideal.

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

I wish I had known that I would have to save money each month due to the bills & council tax not coming yet, it has been 3 months and I am worried how high the bill may be, and if I have saved enough.

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

Any query I have raised has been answered within the hour.

Nice home

Nice quiet area, interior is really nice, dislike our view as it’s a construction site so it could be better. Bathrooms are stunning and love how broadband is included also. Still waiting on the co-op and the brewery to open.
