X1 and its investment consultancy partner Knight Knox has completed phase one at X1 The Campus, located adjacent to the University of Salford's Frederick Road Campus.

The latest development represents X1's eighth student accommodation scheme in the North West.

The project is valued at £24.7m and consists of two blocks of accommodation containing a total of 271 apartments. The site also features a landscaped garden, communal lounges, a gym, cinema room, secure bicycle storage and an underground car park.

Commenting on the development, Andy Phillips, commercial director at Knight Knox, said: "We are extremely pleased by the completion of X1 The Campus Phase 1, our latest student accommodation development. The University of Salford is popular with students from around the world and all of them need high quality rental accommodation during the course of their studies."

"We are confident that the location of X1 The Campus will make it a popular option for students looking to be close to the university but also within easy reach of Manchester city centre and Salford Quays."

The second phase of the project consists of 76 apartments and has a value of £7m, with construction work due to start soon.
