New Look Student Show Home Revealed In Salford

This is the first look at the new show rooms designed for a new class of student accommodation in the North West by Salford student accommodation provider Portergate Property Management.

Students and parents looking for hotel-class luxury in Salford can now get a taste of what’s on offer at Riverside House, built by Portergate Property Management.

The standard of accommodation unveiled in these images of the newly built student residence highlights the ambition for Riverside House, which opens its doors in September, to be recognised as the number one location for UK and overseas students in Salford.

The stylish apartment on show includes a fully-furnished living space and fitted kitchen complete with high-quality appliances, including a dishwasher. En-suite bedrooms are also fully furnished and have dedicated super-fast wi-fi internet.

Riverside House is a unique development of 242 luxury en-suite student rooms situated on the Broughton Bridge riverbank of the Irwell as it flows through Salford and into the heart of Manchester, the UK’s second city.

Set in its own landscaped gardens, the landmark building on Blackfriars Road is walking distance from the University of Salford campus, Manchester city centre and Salford Central train station.

The emerging nightlife scene of Salford’s Greenbank Quarter is on its doorstep, while the vibrant cafes and bars of Manchester’s Cathedral Quarter and Deansgate are also within a 15 minute walk or a short bus journey.

Security and service are paramount at Riverside House. It will have a day time house manager, 24-hour concierge and on-site maintenance. For personal security, each floor and all rooms are accessed by swipe card.

Demand for the accommodation from UK and overseas students is already high. Riverside House, which is on schedule to open its doors for the 2013-14 academic year, represents a £7 million investment by Cheshire-based Portergate Property Management.

The company specialises in developing high-class, purpose-built student accommodation with more than 500 rooms ready to open, under construction or with planning consent across the North West.

The latest addition to its portfolio of developments is a £18 million city centre regeneration project in the Friargate area of Preston.

The company is looking to roll out its boutique student living concept across the North West. Its Preston development is scheduled to be opened for students in 2014-2015.

The Salford showroom is now available to view. If you would like to make an appointment, please email:
