Have you ever wondered what it takes to create the UK’s stunning skylines? From MediaCityUK to Liverpool’s waterfront, the United Kingdom offers travellers and residents spectacular views of its landscapes, coastlines and skyscrapers. One of the most influential companies shaping the UK’s most beautiful skylines is based in the North West: X1 Developments.
The corporation is considered a staple name in property construction and area regeneration. Besides building some of the country’s most magnificent skyscrapers, like X1 Cheltenham Place and X1 Media City Tower 3, the group also partners with investors for development projects. It even has a letting management division to ensure tenants receive the finest service possible, thereby bringing in a steady stream of income for investors.
It’s not accidental that X1 is a leading UK-based development company. The business has built a stellar reputation for innovative, exceptional housing projects.
Its footprint can be found in the UK’s most significant tourist hotspots, such as Manchester, Liverpool, Leeds and Kent. If you were lucky enough to admire the MediaCityUK skyline, you surely were amazed by some of their projects.
Gorgeous skyscrapers, astounding ROIs
Tourists are just some of the ones who benefit from X1 Development’s projects. Offering rental return rates of up to 6%, the company has already generated more than £47 million in rent payments for investors. It has poured more than $1.2 billion into completed or ongoing developments.
A striking example is X1 Media City, the largest residential development in the North West, looming over the Salford Quays skyline. It comprises four iconic towers and more than 1,000 apartments. The project has increased in value by more than 44% since it was placed on the market.
The company has received almost 20 awards in the past eight years, including the highly respected “British Property Award” in 2020-2021.
Some of its award-winning properties include X1 Michigan Towers, X1 Cheltenham Place and X1 Manchester Waters Tower B.
X1 Michigan Towers
X1 Michigan Towers are responsible for defining the MediaCityUK skyline tourists see from the skies when arriving in Manchester. It features four iconic towers, each with a stunning design and unique façade.
Modern, beautifully landscaped public spaces surround each tower, along with eateries, retail and office spaces.
X1 Michigan Towers have 30, 34 and 40 floors, making them the tallest buildings on the site. Residents fortunate to live here have privileged access to the best of MediaCityUK and the city centre.
X1 Cheltenham Place
MediaCityUK’s skyline is stunning wherever you look, but it’s even better if you’re lucky enough to see it from the rooftop of a building nearby.
One of the X1 Developments constructions in the area will offer exactly that. X1 Cheltenham Place will provide 353 luxury studio apartments in an action-packed location. Its roof garden is a shared space where residents can socialise without leaving the building.
A complimentary combination of relaxing and greenery areas creates a space that will be a haven of peace above the activity and clamour of the city downstairs.
Whether you want to eat outdoors with friends or sunbathe in the summer, the roof garden is the place to be.
X1 Manchester Waters Tower B
Several areas of Manchester are being redeveloped to become more pleasant for tourists and residents. One of these areas is Pomona Island. X1 Developments is also involved in this project with its signature property, X1 Manchester Waters.
X1 Manchester Waters is conveniently situated between Manchester’s lively city centre and MediaCityUK, making it one of the city’s most desirable areas.
X1 Media City Tower 3
Talking about the UK’s most stunning skylines would be impossible without mentioning X1 Media City Tower 3. This prestigious project includes 275 units comprising luxury studios and spacious one and two-bedroom apartments. Investors looking for high returns should run to this opportunity, though.
This is the project’s third tower built in a highly sought-after area. Towers 1 and 2 are completed and almost entirely rented.
