These images show how a project dubbed the region’s ‘largest luxury development’ will look.

The four tower blocks, at Salford Quays, will include 1,036 plush pads, along with a private gym and cinema for people living there.

The project, called X1 Media City, have been given planning permission by Salford council and work on construction will start in February 2015.

A mix of one, two, and three bedroom apartments will be on offer in a joint-venture by Knight Knox International and X1 Developments.

As well as spectacular views across the Salford and Manchester, the towers will, according to the developers, be finished ‘to a standard associated with boutique hotels’.

The development is in the heart of phase two of MediaCityUK, new home of the BBC, which has 800 businesses on the site.

X1 are also currently transforming the former Salford magistrates court building at Bexley Square into 116 flats.

Samantha Jones, head of marketing at Knight Knox, said: “Investor appetite has grown in line with confidence in the UK buy-to-let market, and we have seen heightened interest in the local market over the past 18 months.

“Since launching our first joint venture with X1 Developments back in 2012, we have sold out eight sites and demand for X1 projects is extremely high, mainly due to the quality of the build and the professionalism of the lettings and management team. X1 Media City is certain to become an iconic development for Salford Quays and will rival anything located in the city centre”.

In July, the M.E.N reported that 60 luxury apartments still under construction at Salford Quays by the same partnership had been snapped up in a month - and demand is so great another 60 are being built nearby.

All of those apartments on Trafford Road, near to Fit City Ordsall sports centre are also targeted at the buy-to-let market.

The properties proved so popular that the first of three phases sold out after 10 months on the market - and the second phase, currently being constructed, went in just four weeks.

Now the developer has announced plans to build the third phase - another 60 apartments nearby as demand is so high.
