Five star city centre living.

Review Date Jul 2020

The building is stunning inside and out. The apartments themselves are spacious with beautifully designed modern and stylish kitchens and bathrooms. The oak floor is gorgeous and the view is comfortably the best in Manchester.
The lobby is amazing as well and a great place to work or socialise. We’ve enjoyed several residents events as well where we got to meet our neighbours.
The amenities are just opening and having toured them I can say there’s never been anything like it in Manchester.
All the staff were great, Emma showed us around the apartment and made the move effortless. Yasminas been brilliant from the start and taken care of everything we’ve needed. Ali and the concierge team have always been professional and welcoming. Sarah at the gym and amenities Knows her stuff and I can see how excited she is to welcome us all.
I can’t recommend the building enough for people looking for a genuine five star experience.

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

Great location at the start of deansgate. Minutes from most things the city centre has to offer.

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

The amenities building has opened later than planned

What is the best feature of your home:

The view and the amenities building along with the modern design.

Amazing lifestyle choice place to live

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Jun 2020

I moved in a couple of weeks prior to the CV-19 related lockdown – so, just as I had managed to get unpacked and settled in and all ready to enjoy the fabulous facilities of the West Tower development and the lifestyle the location brings, being on the doorstep of everything Manchester city center offers – that was all put on pause.
The teams who look after you as a resident however have been great; keeping us informed, the communal areas spotless and as best as they can in the circumstances, have kept us entertained with lots of online activities and events; including cooking classes, pampering sessions, yoga and online gym activities and activities for kids!
A big shout out to Louise in particular – not just for organising many of the events – but also for being a fabulous host of the weekly virtual pub quizzes – which have been tremendous fun!
Have seen the leisure facilities that come with being a resident being readied for use once easing of lockdown allows them to open and they will be amazing!!
The views from the apartments on the higher floors are also stunning!

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

Great transport links – Deansgate station and Deansgate / Castlefield tram stop minutes away.
Bars and restaurants galore all in close walking distance (when they all reopen post lockdown of course)
And plenty of leisure activities again on your doorstep!

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

The team do a great job of explaining everything to you when viewing the property and in dealing with any questions you have pre signing the contract but equally of demonstrating everything as you move it – so I felt I new everything I needed to know before I moved in.

What is the best feature of your home:

The location, the views and the leisure facilities make this one of the best, if not the best, places to live in Manchester

Hi Wayne

Thanks so much for taking the time and trouble to write a review about West Tower. We really appreciate your enthusiasm and apologies for having to shut things down just after you moved in – nothing personal I promise!

The Club now has a provisional opening date on mid-July and we are also super excited that residents will be able to make full use of it. We also owe you quite a few cups of coffee as the resident lounge shut almost as soon as you arrived.

We are so glad you enjoy the quizzes and yes – Louise has been an absolute star hosting these.

Your comments about the team are also much appreciated and we hope you continue to enjoy all things West Tower.

Best regards .

Excellent in every shape and form

Excellent management team, they’re very understanding and helpful for everything concern you might have. The location is just the best in Manchester, close to everything and anything you want. And the development design is phenomenal.

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

I like everything about this development.

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

given 2 months notice, you get your money back.

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

Nothing, I’m provided with everything I need and want, and it comes with this beautiful apartment.

Design of the development is very modern with the property being well managed by the residents services team. Maintenance issues reported are also quickly attended to.

Lots of facilities are available to residents including a lounge area and coffee machine.

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

Good location with easy access to transport and local shops and grocers.

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

The delay in the local amenities building that was already delayed before the pandemic.

What is the best feature of your home:

Modern design and facilities where available makes it more comfortable.

Hello Malcolm

We are as excited as you for the amenities to open, provisionally we now have a mid-July opening booked. On behalf of the team, it is great to have you here and I look forward to getting the coffee flowing again post COVID-19 lockdown.

Deansgate Square – Why live anywhere else?

The development is simply incredible! The design of the building down to even the decorations in the communal area fits perfectly if you’re looking for a stylish and modern apartment complex to rent. The value you get for your money is unmatched; a gym, pool, sauna, jacuzzi, steamer, yoga classes, spinning classes, spa, private dining rooms for rental, a roof-top bar exclusive for residents and that’s just naming a few! If you’re looking for somewhere to rent in the city centre of Manchester don’t look anywhere else and join the Deansgate Square community.

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

This area is close to everything you need! Bars, Restaurants, Cafe’s, Activities, the Shopping Centre, Historical sights and even more!

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

I wish I had known that the amenities would take longer than expected (However, not their fault) as this might have tempted me to extend my lease for an extra year so I could enjoy the benefits/value for longer.

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

One thing I would change is having a window in the bathroom so I could air it out more and rely less on the light and more on natural light

Hi Reanne

Thank you so much for taking the time to review West Tower. We really appreciate it.

We have a provisional opening date for the amenities of 15 July so I hope you will be one of the first to come and see the finished article, it is truly something very special!

All of the team at West Tower thank you for being so positive and we hope you continue to enjoy living with us.

Best development in the city centre

The design is brilliant, both architectural and interior design. We love the finishes, how good the internal spaces are and how they work with our routines. We also appreciate having a 24 hours service in the building. We are still waiting for the common spaces to be delivered, but we are looking forward to using these areas to exercise and interact with our neighbors.

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

We really like living in this area, because it is easy accessible from public transport via tram and train. Moreover, it is only a short walk to the main area of the city centre, which we really appreciate. The only point to keep in mind is that this is an area going through a massive development, so you should expect minor disturbances from ongoing construction.

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

We would like to have had a better estimation on the energy costs for the building (especially during winter).

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

The management team has always responded promptly to any issues we had. They have came to our flat to sort any issue as soon as it was raised.

Hi J S

Thank you for taking the time and trouble to write a review about West Tower.

We are delighted to learn that you enjoy living with us and are looking forward (as we are) to The Club opening – we have a provisional date for mid-July so not too far away now!

We really appreciate your comments about the team and hope you continue to receive great service throughout your stay with us.

The design is flawless, the apartments are beautiful and the shared areas are also well designed and always clean. The building and property management is excellent, any issues with the apartment have been dealt with in a very timely fashion whilst the property management as a whole is also superb.

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

The property is in an excellent location near shops and restaurants whilst also being located next to a tram stop and train station so you can travel anywhere very easily.

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

Free coffee machine and an excellent concierge service!

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

We moved in at the very start of the property being open to guests so it is a shame the recreation facilities are only just being completed. Having said that any new tenants will get access to what look like exceptional facilities.
