Trio of apartment properties launch in Manchester's Castlefield

A multimillion pound development of build-to-rent apartments has opened its doors in a rejuvenated inner city area of Manchester, complete with unrivalled facilities and amenities.

Over £53m has been invested to create The Trilogy in the heart of Castlefield, which comprises 232 pet-friendly one, two and three-bedroom apartments ready to move into.

Spanning 165,000 sq. ft. the striking development is located on Ellesmere Street and is set across three buildings known as Trilogy North, Trilogy West and Trilogy East; all centred around a landscaped courtyard.


Residents will be catered to extensively with facilities including communal gardens, a fully equipped gym with Apple TV, a residents lounge with co-working space plus free tea and coffee, cycle storage and 75 car parking spaces. Ultrafast fibre optic broadband will be available throughout the development.

Notable lifestyle perks setting The Trilogy apart from other apartment schemes include a resident services team on hand 24 hours a day and security. Additionally, a social calendar of events and a partner programme will open up opportunities for local businesses from personal trainers and beauticians to restaurants and bars.

Each apartment, available with or without furniture, has been spaciously designed to achieve a sleek, contemporary interior filled with light, and features an open-plan layout. The same aesthetic has been realised within the shared spaces by Manchester’s SpaceInvader Design.

Residents will have access to the whole of Manchester via great transport links which are nearby; Deansgate is a three minute journey on the tram, Cornbrook Metrolink Station is a three minute walk from the development, MediaCityUK is a 12 minute commute and there are regular connections to Piccadilly which is also 12 minutes away.

Build-to-rent offers hassle-free living and a high-quality rental with a professional landlord and flexible lease terms. Plus, a tech-first approach will mean the whole letting process can be completed online through Allsop’s Virtual Agency, a revolutionary portal facilitating virtual tours and allowing prospective residents to book viewings, reserve a property, make payments and sign and complete all documentation.

Dougie Orton-Wade, General Manager at The Trilogy said: “The Trilogy is located in Manchester’s most exciting area of regeneration, making it perfectly suited to professionals working in the city, as well as couples, recent graduates and young families looking to settle away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre, yet still be within close reach.

“Conveniently-connected Castlefield is a gateway to the city with cobbled streets, scenic canals and converted mills reminiscent of the industry that thrived here and the Urban Heritage Park provides green spaces on the doorstep of our development.

“We pride ourselves on offering ‘more than just a home’ and facilities both inside and out have been designed with the resident in mind, to the highest of standards. The Trilogy will be a meeting hub where new connections and friends can be made with fellow residents.

“We’re confident the location and lifestyle we have on offer will be in popular demand. Show apartments are now open and reservations are being taken, with our first residents having taken occupation. Enquiries can also be made via the website, email or by telephone.”

The development is being delivered by Moorfield Group and professionally managed by leading UK property consultant Allsop.
