The building will be 15 storeys set in 1.5 acres of landscaped grounds and comprise of 174 one and two bedroom apartments. The flats will also offer luxury features including floor-to-ceiling glass windows and balconies.

The development will be less than a three-minute walk to Trafford Bar tram stop, providing access to Manchester city centre and Salford Quays. The scheme is surrounded by local shops, food outlets, with Old Trafford Cricket Ground and Manchester United football club in close proximity.

There will also be private car parking with 90 spaces.

Chris Taylor, managing director at Regency Residential, said: “Trafford Plaza is a unique development in the heart of Old Trafford – the building offers fantastic views over the ever-changing Manchester cityscape and the increasingly favoured area of Old Trafford.

“It is no surprise that properties in the area are getting snapped up; year-on-year growth, recent regeneration of the area along with its ideal location just outside the bustling city, combine to offer something for everyone. From shopaholics to football fans, Trafford Plaza is a desirable purchase for those seeking new build properties.

“Access to key transport links give easy access to the popular surrounding suburbs of Chorlton, Didsbury and Salford Quays while the city centre is just a short journey. The apartments are ideal for first-time buyers, families and young professionals, providing plenty of space compared to city centre alternatives.

“With rental yields attaining almost 7.5 per cent year on year, this will be an attractive proposition.”
