MediaCityUK is playing a pivotal role in the growth of the media and associated industries across the North West - Manchester is already home to the second largest cluster in Europe with more than 31,000 companies and nearly 330,000 employees (source: MIDAS).

Providing a home for the new Northern headquarters of both the BBC and ITV, MediaCityUK also sits at the heart of developing new talent and growing smaller tech-focused businesses. Located on the banks of the Manchester Ship Canal, our vision is for MediaCityUK to become a leading international hub for the creative and digital sectors - and a vibrant destination to work, live and play.

Future plans are now in development with our fellow investor and joint venture partner, Legal and General Capital.
