First Middlewood Locks homes launched by build to rent operator

New Maker Yards

Build to rent operator Get Living has launched its first 275 new homes at New Maker Yards, within Middlewood Locks, in central Manchester.

Once complete, New Maker Yards – at more than 800 homes – will be the largest build to rent development outside London.

New Maker Yards combines city living and canal side green space with Get Living’s furnished homes and its no deposit, no fees, no hassle approach.

This new build to rent neighbourhood offers secure, yet flexible, three-year tenancies on one-, two- and three-bed apartments.

Committed to making renting as hassle-free as possible, Get Living surveyed Manchester renters to find out how to make renting easier.

More than 30% said that costs were always top of the list for causing stress, so as well as no deposit to pay, Get Living is offering residents their first Summer free – with no rent to pay until September 1, 2019.

Get Living manages 3,000 homes for rent across the UK and is now bringing its experience to the region at New Maker Yards, within the 25-acre Middlewood Locks located between Manchester and Salford.

Neil Young, Get Living chief executive, said: “After more than six years of growth and experience we’re excited to be bringing the Get Living renting and living experience to Middlewood Locks.

“Our new residents can be just eight minutes’ walk from the heart of the city, yet also retreat from it, with our well-sized, stylish apartments offering canal-side living with new independent retailers arriving soon.

“We are passionate about creating brilliant big city neighbourhoods and are proud that New Maker Yards at Middlewood Locks is our first outside London.”

Residents will be able to take advantage of a range of communal spaces, including a residents’ Club Room open from Autumn 2019, which will provide space for resident events and networking, as well as a home working hub and green space.

New Maker Yards is Get Living’s first location outside London, where it has more than six years’ experience and is best known for supporting the growth of East Village, a vibrant new neighbourhood at the former London 2012 Athletes’ Village.
