New Maker Yards
Phase 1 completed, phase 2 ongoing
1st Get Living real estate project outside London, in Manchester where New Maker Yards is dedicated as a residential community with a special array of surrounding services.
Manchester was once the capital of the industrial world and Get Living’s first neighbourhood outside London – New Maker Yards – is built around the historic canal basins at Middlewood Locks and is bounded by the River Irwell, famously the border between Manchester and Salford. Within walking distance of the regenerated Spinningfields district, New Maker Yards currently offers city living and canal-side green space for 275 homes, with another 546 to be completed in 2021.
Residents of New Maker Yards have access to a residents’ club room with shared working space and regular free social events organised by Get Living – such as free jazz nights at the Northern Quarter jazz club Matt & Phred’s, as well as yoga and weekly fitness classes along the canal path. A new 3,000 sq ft (279 sqm) amenity space will be completed to provide residents with an additional fitness area, a café and a multi-purpose room.
As a champion of the local community, Get Living also supports independent businesses including the Salford-based brewery Seven Bro7hers and the Manchester-headquartered Co-Op.
