The city centre site sits adjacent to a railways line. Care has been taken to minimise the impact of noise, pollution and overlooking. The scheme houses 417 apartment, 3,000sqm of commercial floor space which includes a proposed gym and small format supermarket plus possible crèche and pharmacy. Resident and gym users parking is provided within a secure basement.

Future tenants will enter off a newly created pedestrian boulevard that will improve links to and from the centre of Manchester. Visitors and tenants will be greeted by a concierge and marketing staff based in the hotel style lobby which houses the entrance foyer and concierge service. Permanent maintenance staff have their own office space, linked to the concierge facility.

At first floor level there is a large triple height atrium space from which residents access communal facilities such as a business lounge, library and south facing roof terrace with bbq facilities.

At the top of the tower there is a dedicated private entertaining space with stunning views across the city, available to hire for residents to hire for parties and events. Each apartment has been designed to allow for maximum flexibility for the tenants with generous double bedrooms, en suite bathrooms and its own winter garden.
