The Quays and MediaCity
Salford Quays is one of Europe’s most successful waterside regeneration projects. Derelict docklands have been transformed into a vibrant new town with well-established tourism, employment, retail, leisure and residential functions, taking advantage of the high quality environment and waterside setting.
The development of MediaCity over the last decade has helped to establish a major cluster of digital and media uses at Salford Quays, with potential for considerable further expansion. The area also has a wider business function and is one of the primary office locations within Greater Manchester.
The new town will continue to grow as one of the most important economic locations in the country. It will see high levels of development and will be increasingly recognised internationally as an excellent place to work, live and visit.
