MediaCity UK

MediaCity:UK is a 200-acre development taking place at Salford Quays on land owned by Peel Media, a division of the Manchester-based Peel Holdings. The main aim of the project is to create a dedicated, purpose-built ‘city’ that will become home to a number of broadcasting and new media companies, including parts of the BBC.

As well as world class facilities for broadcasting, which include the largest high definition television studio complex in Europe, it is hoped MediaCity will become a focal point for the local community, expanding upon the commercial and social benefits already brought by the arrival of The Lowry Centre in 1999. Bars, cafes and restaurants will line the development’s central area, which, at twice the size of London’s Trafalgar Square, will be able to accommodate up to 5,000 people.

From the windows of theEword offices, our team has been able to see the MediaCity development taking shape over the past few years. What was once a barren, flat landscape has become home to growing office blocks and ever-busy cranes and workers, providing an impressive vista and talking point for visitors to theEword.

The first, 36-acre, phase of the development is set to open in 2011, with expansion into the remaining area
