Bridgestone to build Salford Dye Works

The Hyde-based contractor is due to start work on Primus Property Group’s 165-home scheme on Worrall Street in Ordsall. 

Designed by Tim Groom Architects, Dye Works was approved by Salford City Council last year. 

Now, a letter sent to local residents indicates Bridgestone is due to start construction of the £36m residential scheme imminently. 

Earlier this year, Bridgestone completed the construction of Dock 5, a 389-apartment build-to-rent scheme for ForViva. 

Dock 5 is also located on Ordsall Lane, a short distance from Primus’ Dye Works. 

The Dye Works site was previously earmarked for a 232-home scheme by Forshaw Land & Property. Plans for that project were approved in 2017 but withdrawn the following year.  

Landowner Latitude then sold the site to Primus, paving the way for the latest proposals to come forward.  

Primus’s scheme features 153 one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments and 11 two- and three-bedroom townhouses.  

Industrial buildings on the site, previously occupied by J and JM Worrall’s Dye Works, would be demolished under the developer’s proposals.  

The site, located close to the Manchester Ship Canal, is bound to the south by Worrall Street and straddles Dyer Street to the east. 

To the north of the site, electrical manufacturer Selectric is developing the 196-apartment Merchant’s Wharf.   

Euan Kellie Property Solutions is the planning consultant for Primus’ scheme and Layer.studio is the landscape architect.  

GIA, Renaissance, Hann Tucker, Wardell Armstrong, SCP, and Tim Claxton Property are also instructed.

Quality urbanism. Well done (once again) Tim Groom Architects and Layer.studio


Tim Groom knock it out of the park again. Other Manchester architects should be taking notes.

Looks very similar to Middlewood Locks to me.

Excellent – a scheme I can get on board with 🙂

Nice to see large useable balconies to every unit.

This is what we should see over the border in Manchester but don’t because of the aesthetic preference of someone in the planning department.
