Corridor Manchester is a strategic vision for the region due for completion by 2025. It includes the creation of a smart, original knowledge-based place to live and work, which aims to be in the top 5 innovation districts in Europe.
The main Manchester Teaching Hospitals are within 5-10 minutes walk, as well as the Royal Manchester Eye Hospital and Manchester Royal Infirmary. To cater for the neighbouring students, the area also has a multitude of sporting facilities including gyms, tennis courts, squash courts, indoor and outdoor football pitches and the Manchester Aquatics Centre, which hosted the swimming events at the 2002 Commonwealth Games. All the facilities are within a 5-10 minute walk.
The development is adjacent to the Oxford Road Corridor, which has vehicular transport links straight into Manchester City Centre or to its wealthy suburbs in the opposite direction. The development is also a 10-minute walk to Oxford Road Train Station, which connects to Piccadilly Station within 5 minute journey time. Alternatively, Piccadilly Station is within a 20-25 minute walk.
