About LOCAL Blackfriars

Blackfriars is a hugely popular development right on the outskirts of Manchester City Centre, in the Greengate neighbourhood of Salford.

  • Manchester’s main shopping centre, the Arndale.

  • Plenty of theatres, museums and music venues.

While remaining in a more peaceful location off the busiest roads. Blackfriars is a best-of-both-worlds scenario for residents.

About LOCAL Blackfriars

Design choice: a designer finish

This development had the ambitious aim to combine opulence with practicality. Giving residents that feeling of luxuriousness, elevated beyond normal accommodation while keeping the development easy to live in - comfortable, durable and not pretentious.

It’s a modern development with fantastic amenities for residents to enjoy, including a gym, concierge and cinema room. The apartments needed to match this level of richness, which was one of the key design themes LOFT chose to highlight in our interiors and furniture choices.

Why LOFT was chosen

For Blackfriars, LOFT furnished 146 apartments, ready to be sold.

LOFT has worked with Urbanbubble and Salboy for over 5 years. We’ve enjoyed a successful relationship thanks to the level of trust we’ve built over many developments due to our shared values - putting the resident at the heart of any property.

At LOFT, we apply this People-First mentality to all our interior designs. So that the future residents feel immediately at home in accommodation which had been designed with them in mind.

For Blackfriars, the developers once again chose LOFT thanks to our high levels of stock availability. Due to the location of our two UK warehouses, we were also able to deliver and install the furniture when needed.

Why LOFT was chosen

"The design is perfect"
