An off-plan residential investment opportunity

Welcome to Transmission House, formerly known as SYNC NQ. Transmission House is a brand-new residential development based in the heart of Manchester and as the Managing Director of O'Connor Bowden, I will be assuming the role of Project Director and will be responsible for the initial marketing and letting of our client's new investment properties.

At O'Connor Bowden, we have been working on this new apartment scheme, since its initial conception back in 2014 when we were appointed by the Development Company, Factory Estates, as their Sales & Marketing Consultants. We have been involved at every stage and have assisted the Architects with the design requirements, set the asking prices, projected rental incomes and developed as affordable service charge for our investor claims.

In December 2015, through our own investment services division and a small number of appointed, trusted partner agents, we finally launched the apartments "For Sale" on exclusive off-market terms.

With the building nearing completion, we are now preparing the next phase of our Marketing Strategy:

  • Ensuring apartments are advertised for rent from February 2019
  • Reserving and Referencing Professional and Corporate Tenants in readiness for occupancy upon completion
  • Arranging handover of your property from the Developer and full snagging service
  • Arranging the order and installation of our clients chosen furniture packs
  • Setting up your Service Charge accounts

As always, we strive to deliver a first-class service to you and I will welcome the opportunity to discuss your requirements in more detail. Feel free to get in touch any time on 07702 649623 or email:

The Development has been designed to appeal to the rapidly growing rental market as well as offering units attractive to owner-occupiers, the exceptional rental demand and strong re-sale market. There is a choice of studios, one, two and three bedroom apartments as well as 5 spectacular 3 bedroom penthouses with private garden areas.

It is extremely rare that individual investors are afforded the opportunity to purchase an off-plan apartment in Central Manchester's M1 post district, "slap bang" in the middle of the UK's hottest rental market. Located in the heart of the City Centre and when we say "heart of the City" we mean at the centre of it all! Just a few seconds walk to Market Street and King Street, this is prime location between Manchester's trendiest neighbourhood: the Northern Quarter.

The Northern Quarter is the most vibrant and cultural area in the City and rental demand will be extremely high.
