Inner-city locations delivering luxurious quality for the modern lifestyle

Salboy is a Manchester-based property developer, financier, and equity provider. Its roots are firmly in Manchester and, with a fantastic relationship with both Manchester and Salford councils, Salboy is helping to unlock some of the most promising brownfield sites in the North West of England. Further afield, the company has around 2,000 units under construction countrywide, either under its name, via joint ventures, or as equity partnerships.

Salboy – property development experts in Manchester

Salboy provides the financing, design, and construction of what many consider to be the best schemes in the best locations in Manchester with the best quality materials. With more than 1200 residential units under construction in Manchester city centre, Salboy is currently the largest developer on site in the city.

The Salboy team is Manchester born and bred and believes in the buzz in the city. It is passionate about helping Manchester grow while maintaining its heritage. It aims to aid the development of Manchester for the city to reach its full potential, as a globally recognised city.

Lending, developing and partnering

The founders and core of the company come from a development finance background, and this is how Salboy started its life – as a financier of quality developments. Salboy partners with experienced property developers and investors, providing the equity to kick-start and complete exciting commercial and residential property developments in key city locations throughout the UK.

To deliver its vision of quality of location and build, Salboy created its own construction company, Domis Construction. Together with its partnerships with award-winning architects 5Plus and IDP, Salboy prides itself on delivering high-quality and locational ideal residential developments.

Three Salboy developments you shouldn’t ignore

Salboy is undertaking some of Manchester’s most ambitious property developments. They are all designed for modern living and in exceptional locations. Here are three examples of what Salboy is creating in Manchester.

Local Blackfriars

A gated community of 380 apartments, townhouses and penthouses across two striking towers, which have been designed to blend with a Grade II listed former public house that is repurposed as the gateway entrance. Open living spaces are perfectly aligned with open green spaces. Units are light, spacious, and airy.

Everything that modern lifestyle living needs is here: a substantial communal garden space and top-class amenities that include a 24/7 concierge service, bistro, bar, gymnasium, yoga and dance studio, cinema room and fully equipped laundrette.

The development is just a five-minute walk to Manchester’s shopping district and vibrant nightlife.

M One Central

Partnering with one of the top inner-city property developers in the North West, Salboy is delivering 119 one and two-bedroom apartments in a 12-storey tower in this highly sought-after Northern Quarter location.

Salboy’s relationship with developer Factory Estates goes back years and leverages the experience and expertise of both partners – financing, land acquisition, design and planning, construction, and sales.

Here at M One Central, the Great Ancoats Street development will deliver quality residential units for the private rented sector, with features that include a roof level terrace, ground floor gym, and landscaped public square. Again, while the feel of the building will be modern, benefitting from up-to-date quality and style, it will remain sympathetic to the period architecture of its local environment.

Tib Street Manchester

Just one minute by foot from Market Street in the city centre, Tib Street is the ideal location for residents who want to live where they work and play. The development will deliver 183 apartments as part of a near £30 million mixed-use redevelopment on the site of a former car park and the Tib Street Horn.

Like M One Central and Local Blackfriars, there will be a host of communal facilities, and internal courtyard and a rooftop garden. And like all of Salboy’s developments in Manchester, units are selling fast.

Live with passion,
