It really is the last chance to become part of the developing story of this iconic new landmark; the next generation in service-led apartment living and a pioneering flagship development that will result in the creation of a dynamic and exciting new urban community on the Manchester and Salford border.

Exceeding all expectations, Downtown offers Manhattan-inspired apartment living on a level not yet seen before in Manchester.  Superior living spaces and a host of five star hotel-style services provide residents with the absolute ultimate in city living that is especially designed to enhance their demanding lifestyles and meet their discerning needs.

Saving the best until last, the Alchemy at Downtown is a bespoke collection of just 55 two bedroom apartments with city and river views that are situated in a premier location on the development close to the Metrolink station at Cornbrook and the pedestrian footbridge that connects residents with Castlefield and the Spinningfields business district of Manchester in a short five minute walk.

Architecturally designed, the 14 floor statement Alchemy tower is home to Downtown’s stunning lobby, full service concierge and dry and cold storage rooms for deliveries.  All of the development’s facilities are located here, including the state-of-the-art gym, business suite, postal centre, private dining room and media room.  Alchemy even boasts its own rooftop terrace with stylish chill out areas and a private and secure landscaped garden in which residents can relax.

A typical two bedroom apartment at Alchemy is 700 sq ft and offers exceptional living space. 

Fully glazed floor to ceiling windows maximise natural light and make the most of the fabulous views, and some have beautiful terraces providing residents with their own private outside space.

Facilities and services for residents at Downtown are unrivalled, and the foundation on which the scheme was conceived.  The business centre and postal room take homeworking to a new level and the communal areas, complete with statement lighting, luxurious fixtures, fittings and furnishings and landscaped external spaces, have purposely been given a high end boutique hotel feel.

At around 1,500 sqft, Downtown’s spa and fitness zone is generous in size and provides an exclusive lifestyle experience for residents that is rarely found in the UK.  Fully specified with the latest machines, free weights and other fitness equipment, it offers a gym, gym studio and sauna and steam room to enhance wellness and promote wellbeing.

Location and the quality of communal services have been major factors in the decision to buy at Downtown for many investors, and this is even more so with the final properties at Alchemy.  A stunning riverside setting, contemporary and spacious apartments with great views, hotel-style services, high end communal areas and a position that is just minutes from the city centre have impressed purchasers from across the globe.

Manchester has a world class, multimodal, integrated transport infrastructure which provides connectivity across the immediate conurbation and wider North West region and direct access to the rest of the UK and world.



Manchester Airport is the largest airport outside London flying to more than 225 destinations worldwide. Served by all major airlines, Manchester is truly internationally connected and Manchester Airport is the North’s only major international gateway.

Bus & Metrolink

The North West and the inner city centre are served by an extensive bus and tram network, with Metrolink now the largest tram system in the UK.



Manchester offers fast and regular connections to surrounding conurbations and all major UK destinations, with high-speed rail services to London Euston, Birmingham, Liverpool and Edinburgh and a selection of cross country services.

The new rail link will boost economic growth and further open up commercial opportunities for businesses in the North, with journey times from Manchester to London reduced to one hour. There are also plans for a multi-billion pound regeneration project in the city, with the creation of a ‘new look’ Piccadilly Train Station; a ‘gateway quarter’ modelled on Amsterdam and New York.
