Salford has undergone extensive redevelopment in recent years including Salford Quays and Media City UK
The residential population in Salford is 220,000 and is forecasted to grow by another 20,500 by 2022, the second highest forecast in Greater Manchester. The city has a working population of 139,600 people with over 5 million people within commuting distance. Salford is situated at the heart of the largest sub-regional economy outside of London and the South East. Consequently the city is an attractive destination for a range of business sectors.
The Shopping Centre neighbours Salford University with around 20,000 undergraduate & post graduate students.
New Tesco Extra Adjacent to Centre
The new 130,000 sq ft Tesco Extra Store, adjacent to the centre will undoubtedly draw custom from a greater catchment area.
