With a history inextricably intertwined with the rise and the fall of the nineteenth century cotton industry, Ancoats has presented a fascinating template for new investment in recent years.

Rich in a collection of impressive listed buildings including the biggest cotton mills in the world at their peak, this former industrial area has been rejuvenated to house some of the coolest businesses, and the most impressive residential developments in recent years.

Its Italian heritage is firmly rooted within the influx of settlers from that area throughout the industrial age, and is now a definable trait being paid homage to by the new wave of investors. Little Italy, as it has historically been known, is once again the focal point of Manchester.

With a central location, close to everything the wider city has to offer, Ancoats has truly become the place of choice for urbanites.
