X1 celebrate their latest Topping Out Ceremony

If you’re thinking, what is a topping out ceremony? Don’t worry; you are about to find out!


On Thursday we celebrated the progress of our latest development in Manchester, X1 The Plaza. Located adjacent to X1 Eastbank, X1 The Plaza will become our brand new residential development for 2018!

As with any outdoor event in the UK, the rain was there to celebrate with us on the rooftop of X1 The Plaza. With the Etihad stadium as the backdrop, X1 along with our contractors Forrest, DK-Architects and sales agents Knight Knox, celebrated a topping out ceremony on the roof of the building.

Sticking with traditions, each company signed their name into the concrete before placing a tree on the top floor, which is believed to bring good luck to the development.

This was a fantastic day, which marked another milestone for X1!
