LOCAL Crescent is an upcoming development by Salboy on the edge of Manchester city centre and Salford, featuring a prime location and a range of top-notch amenities.
The development is set to provide 399 apartments and seven townhouses across three distinct towers with a range of one, two and three bedroom homes. With its easy access to Manchester City Centre and Salford, LOCAL Crescent provides everything residents need on their doorstep with its prime location and lifestyle-oriented features.
Because of its attractive location and wellness and entertainment amenities provided within the development, residents could save a significant amount of money each month. Below we go into detail about the added value and potentials savings LOCAL Crescent can offer.
Save on the commute
Living at LOCAL Crescent can help you significantly reduce the amount you spend on transport. Manchester city centre is only a short walk away from the development with a six-minute walk to the Central Business District and Spinningfields, the city’s financial centre. The development is also only a five-minute walk from Salford University.
For those working or studying in Manchester or Salford, moving in or near the city centre has been found to save people upwards of £200 on train journeys. When living in areas with a 20 to 30-minute commute by train to the city centre, such as Bury, Todmorden, Bolton, Whitefield and Stalybridge, a monthly season ticket can range from £81 to £172, according to Compare My Move.
If living in towns with a 45-minute to an hour commute from Manchester, such as Blackburn, Wigan, Halifax, and Burnley, a monthly season ticket can cost between £114.50 to £264.60. This is a substantial amount of money that can be saved each month by living in a city centre location with close access to a range of employment opportunities.
Save on the gym
Across the UK, 9.7 million people are members of health and fitness clubs. It’s become a monthly cost many people budget for, especially young people, but many of us have wasted money on a monthly gym membership that we don’t use regularly enough.
A gym membership in Manchester typically costs between £30 and £50 per month. For memberships that include access to other amenities, such as a swimming pool and sauna, exercise classes and a sports pitch, this can cost a significant amount more with some even inching towards £100 a month.
To help save residents money, LOCAL Crescent has a gym, heated swimming pool, sauna and spa, yoga studio and rooftop sports pitch all on-site, so there’s no more need for that pricey gym membership.
Save on the Cinema
As a trip to the cinema can cost between £10 to £15 per person, the cinema room at LOCAL Crescent can add even more value, especially for those who like to frequently go see movies in the cinema.
For those that typically visit the cinema once a week, this could save them between £40 to £60 a month, depending on the cost of a ticket and even more if they have to pay for transport or parking to get there as well.
Having so much on offer within easy reach, residents of LOCAL Crescent will have access to amenities that go far above the usual city-centre offering. These can even save them money on lifestyle-related purchases, in addition to transport costs. The development provides a significant amount of added value and puts a focus on liveability.
The development will also have a laundrette, courtyard gardens, coffee shop and solarium. On top of that, the LOCAL Crescent provides unrivalled views across the River Irwell and easy access to nearby acres of surrounding parkland, providing everything residents need right on their doorstep.
With a range of financial and lifestyle benefits, there’s a substantial amount of added value at LOCAL Crescent with a potential of £100 added value before even including the commuting angle, which can save residents an additional £80 to £270 per month.
