A people-first neighbourhood

Setting itself apart from many urban developments, it has an abundance of green spaces and gardens for residents to enjoy. It’s also styled itself as a neighbourhood, bringing a sense of community and belonging to its residents.

The location

Middlewood Locks is a bustling, canal-side development, located just outside of Manchester city centre. It’s within walking distance of many of the city’s best attractions and a 10-minute walk from Salford Central train station.

Putting the residents at the heart of the development echoes LOFT’s People-First ethos, which influences every project we take on.

LOFT x Scarborough Group

As well as our shared people-first mentalities, LOFT and Scarborough Group have a number of shared characteristics. We are both family businesses with strong roots in the north of England. 

It’s why we’ve enjoyed a successful partnership working together on a number of projects over 5 years. 

For Middlewood Locks, LOFT furnished 25 luxurious apartments.
