The astronomer has room for ten people for dining, four in the bar, four around the kitchen island and six people in the lounge.
It comes as Circle Square development moves into its final phase.
The £ 250 million build-to-rent project at the BBC’s former site was supported by the Greater Manchester Pension Fund.
It comprises 683 apartments spread over 37 and 17 storey buildings, with facilities including communal lounge areas, co-working spaces, fitness centers and private entertaining spaces.
The apartments are at the top end of the market, with one bed starting at £ 1,120 a month.
But Vita says that since its launch in January 2021, Vita Living East is ‘near full occupancy, with only a handful of the 266 apartments available’.
It has also been announced that Symphony Park, a new green space in the city center that is open to the public and visitors, is complete.
The Vita says the space ‘will form the backdrop to the city’s best cultural events, celebrating all that Manchester has to offer and will soon begin to welcome artisan markets, live performances and activations.’
The boutique fitness studio TRIB3 has also now officially opened its doors to the public, along with a number of retail and leisure brands such as Canvas and Hello Oriental, all of which are entering their final stages of fit out ready to open.
They join Circle Square’s thriving urban village of quirky independent retailers at Hatch, which has been busy since it first opened in 2017 and now welcomes over 55,000 visitors each month.
After completing the development, Vita Student with its 1,100 luxury student apartments is fully let for the academic year 2021/2022, confirming Circle Square’s ability as Manchester’s destination for the city center. “
Vita Groups Mark Stott said: “The sheer sense of opportunity really hits you when you arrive at Circle Square, now that the park is open and the work is nearing completion.
Symphony Park, Manchester’s first public park to open in decades, creates a harmonious escape from the hustle and bustle of Oxford Road.
“Vita Living North completes the puzzle and boasts some of the very best luxury apartments in town with unrivaled views.”
“The amount of investment that has gone into Manchester’s Circle Square is something that has not been delivered in a city outside of London, and Vita Living North Apartments offer the very best in terms of location, facilities and location.
“As such, we expect unprecedented demand as these apartments are launched on the market for the first time.”
