The Edge is one of Manchester's landmark city centre developments, The Edge is a handsome contemporary block situated on one of the city's finest riverside sites. These twin 20-storey towers have 275 apartments, most with wide timber-decked balconies and superb views. But it's the quality that really stands out here; cherry-wood flooring, exposed concrete columns, expensive kitchens and bathrooms, the smartest foyer in Manchester and one of the best addresses too. And despite its cramped riverside site it still manages to give most of the apartments unobstructed outlooks, mainly due to its clever cascading wedge design which maximizes light and views. Deansgate is just a few minutes walk away and there are plenty of underground car parking spaces. The Edge.
