Local Blackfriars is situated in Greengate, a 13-hectacre regeneration area which was the original historic medieval core of Salford and is now a prime hotspot for high-rise developments.
This includes 100 Embankment, a £65 million 166,000 sq. ft. nine storey office block. It is one of the few Grade A office space developments currently under construction in Manchester, scheduled to complete in mid-2020.
The development is also a short walk from Spinningfields commercial district, described as "the Canary Wharf of the North", as well as the trendy Northern Quarter.
