MediaCityUK is one of UK’s largest media and technology hubs, with 7,500 people now working living and studying on site, enjoying a range of onsite retail, waterfront, leisure and commercial amenities.

Further phases of development over the next decade will see investment of up to £1bn across eight development plots in residential, hotels, leisure and commercial space, which will double the size of MedicityCityUK by 2030.

LIGHTBOX @ MediaCityUK  

The expansion of MediaCity is continuing on site in 2018 with the £35 million Lightbox residential development.  The scheme comprises 238 apartments over 19 storeys situated directly on MediaCityUK’s waterfront, offering stunning views over Salford Quays, the ITV Coronation Street set and the Manchester skyline.

Designed by AHR, Lightbox will see the creation of luxury studio, one, two and three bed apartments, available for private sale.

Bouygues UK is appointed by MediaCityUK as main contractor for Lightbox. Development commenced in 2017 and is on schedule to complete in quarter 1 2019.
