Poor quality – wardrobes are small and rooms are small. The king-sized bed is great but doesn’t really fit the room.
Limited parking you have to pay for – there are places that inc. parking for free in the local area
Not as secure as it seems – stolen parcels on a number of occasions! Needs concierge or something similar no camera facing parcels and post.

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

Poor and unprofessional.

Bin area is unkempt and has pests, pet poop everywhere; stairs, lift hallways
Drug dealers and multiple stolen packages from apartments – high crime

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

there doesn’t seem to be a cap one students. Most places cap students but, I’ve been here for under a year and the student population has grown – hence the drugs and parties til 4am

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

Takes weeks to reply or ages to answer the phone – if at all

Hi Natasha. Thank you so much for your review. It’s fantastic to hear of your positive experience so far at New Maker Yards! Please let us know if there is anything we can assist with and the team will be happy to help.

Fantastic development, would highly recommend

Review Date Nov 2021

Building is very clean and tidy, with the apartment furnished to a very high standard. The shared spaces feel safe and very well lit. Walking around the development it feels like a nice community, with everyone being very welcoming. The team onsite have been fantastic and I could not recommend them more highly, big shout out to Sophie, who has been very helpful!

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

Really good development, parking is underground and secure. The staff are really friendly, and will help with any issues. Shops are really close and its only a short walk into town.

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

Shops just round the corner which really helps.

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

I had a small issue with the shower, and the team have been fantastic.

Absolutely perfect, the furniture is lovely and design is great

I have one of the luxury apartments and it’s absolutely perfect, the furniture is lovely and design is great, balconies are a really good size and you have to option to decorate it how you like and that’s really nice! The relationship management team are so lovely, even if you bump into them walking they always say hello and are just really easy to deal with! I think get living do a lot to create a sense of community, the events are great and bring people together. The team are also very responsive, any issue I have had was resolved either that day or acknowledged that day and resolved really shortly afterwards with realistic expectations!

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

Really good selection of local shops, bars and open spaces, lots of greenery and the canal is beautiful. Other residents are friendly and there is a community vibe. Within walking distance from the city which is great! The only downside is the noise from the building works beside us and the sometimes from other residents having parties, I have a canal facing flat so I get no road noise.

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

The flats get very very hot in summer, so you have to sleep with windows and doors open! Invest in a good air con machine!

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

Yes, the team are very responsive and deal with issues in a timely manner – I can also appreciate some issues are out of their control and they are always polite and calm in their responses

Middlewood Locks Review

Verified Resident

Review Date Aug 2021

The design of the apartments is first class with top of the range installations and white goods. The layout is extremely practical, with so much storage. The furnishings are great too and are stylish, but also more importantly comfortable. The beds are brilliant with amazing mattresses.

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

The area and location are fantastic, as it is only a short walk to the city for bars and restaurants. Also having seven brothers so close is a great addition to the neighbourhood. Parking is limited as permits are hard to come by, and the street parking can be very busy.

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

I can’t think of anything vital I wish I’d have known to be honest, the move in team were fantastic.

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

The team always answer any queries within 24hrs and I cannot recall a time where my problem wasn’t resolved.

Handy having building management on site and a dedicated maintenance team (any issues we have had are sorted very quickly). There’s been a great selection of free events while we’ve been here so I’m sure there will be more to come. Love the design of the flats and the building courtyards.

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

Good transport links with busses nearby and the city centre only a 15 minute walk away. Ongoing construction work is noisy but the flats block out sound well. Useful retail park nearby and close to a lot of restaurants/bars in the city centre. Also very close to an excellent park which is rare in central Manchester.

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

That Peel Park is so close by! It’s great to have nice green space nearby.

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

Very quick responses and they’ve kept in touch with updates.

The development is brilliant. Love the location and the amenity to city centre. The management and crew around the development do such a great job making sure it is always clean and a place we want to be and happy to call home.

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

The location is stellar. Close to city centre. Noise is fine, I mean loving close to city centre you are going to get traffic noise but with windows closed you hear almost nothing.

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

Nothing really.

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

Immediately and professionally and always in a coutmrteous manner.

The design of this place is stunning. Whilst most flats have the same layout, NMY did a great job of giving each flat a unique touch. The outside area is also absolutely stunning and looks amazing when the sun weather is nice. The convenience of having a co-op, beer house and retail park is also very handy. I personally would have preferred an insight gym but no other complaints.

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

The great aspect of New Maker Yards is the people. Everyone is so lovely and friendly and it makes you feel at home. The development is also stunning, clean and in an amazing location. The only bad aspect I can think of is how loud the construction work is – hearing that first thing in the morning for hours on end is awful.

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

I hadn’t realised how close the community were here and how involved everyone gets.

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

Yes they have, when our lights weren’t working, they came straight away and fixed it.

Review Date Aug 2021

Such high quality installation and fittings, refurbished before our tenancy enough to make it feel brand new again. Quite pricey living but the experience has made it more than worthwhile and changed our minds about feeling pricey!

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

Closer than expected to city centre meaning easy access to absolutely everything!

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

Nothing. Was well marketed and had a good look round the area before hand.

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

Haven’t had to raise any issues as of yet! Hopefully never have to!
