Live at
First Street

Not just a great place to work, visit and enjoy, this is your chance to live in one of the city’s coolest residential districts.


Already home to some of Manchester’s finest student accommodation at VITA, the long-term vision for First Street includes the creation of high-quality residential apartments that people will be proud to call home. Joining with our neighbours at Deansgate Square also means residents will be part of an already flourishing community where everything’s on your doorstep. We’re not sure city centre living could get any better!


Co-living specialists Downing are proposing a brand-new residential development at First Street, which will provide a vibrant new residential neighbourhood for those looking to live in one of the city’s coolest destinations.

But this development won’t be just about spectacular looking apartments. Downing’s wealth of experience in the industry means they understand the challenges that customers face when searching for a home to rent, from affordability and connectivity, to convenience and security and quality.

Their aim is to professionalise and innovate the concept of shared living into affordable, purpose built, city centre living spaces and they’ve chosen First Street for their next development knowing it’s the perfect place for live, work and play.
