Countryside Properties’ NV Buildings in Salford Quays has just won another accolade of ‘Best Views in the North West’ to add to its growing recognition. The development which was hailed as the Best Apartment scheme in 2004 by the Manchester Evening News, has now been recognised by the University of Manchester as the residential buildings with the views which are ‘probably the best in, and of, the North West.’
According to Michael Bradford, Professor of Geography and Pro-Vice Chancellor of the University of Manchester: “Having looked at other developments around the region, most have been in dense areas where it is difficult to have a really good view.
“A great view consists of many components that really make it a feast for the eye. Where NV Buildings is situated provides a great opportunity to enjoy a truly enviable panoramic view, probably the best in, and of, the North West. The water of the Quays adds to the tranquillity, reflecting the pink, blue and white of a canal bridge and the green of the trees during the day. At night, the lights of The Lowry Centre and the Imperial War Museum really are breathtaking.
“From the terraces of the apartments, one half of the panoramic view is framed by The Pennines and the Peaks with colourful sunrises for the early-risers.
“To the West lies the coast, the Welsh Hills and dramatic sunsets behind the distant Fiddler’s Ferry power station. To the North is the Lancashire landscape while to the South the Cheshire plain stretches out beyond Manchester Airport.”
According to Countryside Properties Sales & Marketing Director, Ann Lever, the exercise was carried out with the University to confirm the developers’ belief that NV Buildings did, in fact, have the best views in Greater Manchester.
“Given our location and our height at 150 feet, we believed we may be able to claim that. However, when we were told that we could claim probably the best views in the region, we were both surprised and delighted!
“Although everyone knows you cannot really buy the view, our purchasers, particularly at the penthouse and duplex levels, can be assured that they have the privilege of being able to enjoy the best panorama in the North West as well as the most spectacular sunrises and sunsets from their windows, terraces and balconies.”
