Driving, walking or riding past this development at the top (or is that bottom?) of the Bridgewater Way – on your way into town – it’s easy to see how its design has certainly divided people.

Sure, there’s always the same lot who shout about “another block of apartments” etc. but when you look at VOX from ground level, it certainly has a ‘unique’ look to it.

Some people have likened it to an old Soviet block of houses, some to Benidorm’s famous high-rises – me though – I think it looks sleek, retro and rather Scandinavian. I like it – not that I’m an expert or anything!

Construction on the apartments is entering its final stages, but the one thing that you can’t see from the road is the rooftop, and they’ve seemingly gone all out on this one – it includes a gym, garden, a yoga room and best of all – an actual RUNNING TRACK!

I mean, just look at it. Instead of running around the streets of Cornbrook and Trafford on a dark, drizzly night – you can just nip up to the roof and have a jog up there – free from traffic, people asking for change and all of those dodgy pot holes that are everywhere.

If you like the look of the place, stunning 1, 2 & 3 bedroom apartments are available to rent from early 2021 – just head on over to their website to register your interest.
