Salboy tops out two Manchester tower schemes

Developer and funding company Salboy Group has revealed that two of its largest residential sites to date have topped out.

The central Manchester tower projects include the first phase of its flagship mixed-use scheme Viadux, and 177-home residential development Victoria House. 

With its dedicated construction partner DOMIS, Salboy has reached the highest point on its 40-storey residential tower that forms a major part of phase one at Viadux. 

Once complete, the Viadux tower will be home to residents spread across its 385 one- and two-bedroom apartments and penthouses. 

The development boasts terrace gardens, a gym, private lounge, bar, and cinema, and is also within walking distance from the city centre and transport links. 

Victoria House — developed in partnership with Forshaw Group — is a 25-storey tower that will bring 177 new homes to Piccadilly Central.

Comprising a community park, co-working spaces, residents’ lounge and gym, Victoria House is targeted at young professionals starting their careers in Manchester. 
Construction schedules remain on track, with practical completion expected on both sites by Q2 2024

Some 95% of properties in both towers — designed by local architects Simpson Haugh — have already been sold.

Simon Ismail, managing director and co-founder of Salboy, commented: “Topping out on any development is always an exciting moment.

“It’s an important opportunity to celebrate what’s come before to get to this point and a chance to really get a sense of the scale and size of the finished scheme to come.

“To top out on two schemes on target and on budget at the same time is doubly thrilling.”

Carmen Ching, head of sales at Salboy, added: “It’s great to see both Viadux and Victoria House on track for completion in 2024.”
