A true Northern Powerhouse success story, MediaCityUK celebrates its tenth anniversary this year. The redevelopment of the previously derelict Salford Quays area has drawn massive investment to the site, which now hosts headquarters of major national broadcasters including the BBC and ITV, as well as dock10, a state-of-the-art University of Salford education centre, the biggest media production facilities in Western Europe, and a host of creative SMEs.

MediaCityUK is a joint venture between Northern Powerhouse partner, Peel, and Legal and General Capital and ambitious plans to double the size of the development by 2030 were approved last September, with a further £1 billion of private investment to come.
