The next level in luxe city living, Local Blackfriars is a gated community comprising 380 apartments, townhouses and penthouses across two striking towers.
Local Blackfriars’ location raises the bar for luxury residential developments. Just five minutes’ walk from Manchester’s bustling shopping district – Selfridges, Harvey Nichols, the deathlessly hip Northern Quarter – and the glossy nightlife of Deansgate and Spinningfields.
A substantial communal garden space is complemented by second-to-none amenities that include a 24/7 concierge service, bistro, bar, gymnasium, yoga and dance studio, cinema room and fully equipped laundry.
Entering the development via the repurposed Grade II-listed Black Friar pub, you find yourself in the main residents’ hub. Here you’ll find a reception area – one of three within the scheme – management offices, a lettings desk and concierge services run by the acclaimed Urban Bubble.
There’s also an expansive private ‘party room’ – complete with its own kitchen and WC – that’s exclusively available for residents to book out for entertaining guests. Residents can even book stopover rooms for visitors to spend the night in, should they need to.
Local Blackfriars’ 380 living spaces include top-floor penthouses with wraparound balconies offering widescreen cityscape views; ground-floor Manhattan-style townhouses with pavementlevel access; and dual-aspect apartments that receive maximised sunlight levels throughout the day.
