Cert submits 30-storey Salford tower application
Manchester-based Cert Property aims to build 402 apartments in its community living scheme on Clippers Quay.
Plans for the OMI Architects-designed Clippers Quay tower have been submitted to Salford City Council by planning consultant Enabl.
If built, Clippers Quay tower would have 261 co-living studios, 126 apartments and 15 penthouses. There would also be three floors of resident amenity space and a sky bar, which could be open to the public.
The amenity space would include a café and lounge, restaurant, meditation spaces, fitness and yoga studios, co-working space, games and cinema room and auditorium. Plans also include a cycle storage and repair workshop, roof terrace and sustainable allotment.
“Community living at Clippers Quay aims to recreate the community spirit of old, in a contemporary environment,” said Cert managing director Howard Lord.
“We envisage a new way of living, not just a place to live but an entire lifestyle – one that puts the residents of the building at the heart of everything.”
“Our community living vision has been two-years in the making and we’re really proud that Clippers Quay is the first location we will be bringing our vision to life,” Lord said.
“We want to recapture that civic and community pride like you would find in the terraced streets of old in Salford and many cities and towns across the UK.”
The submission of the Clippers Quay application comes after a public consultation, which led the project team to refine its visuals to show the design and materials of the tower better. The first 11 stories of the building are covered in red bricks with grey balconies, while the top 19 floors are unitised glass.
Domis Construction is the contractor, which would also include landscape designs by Layer Studio. Artal is the project manager.
The development team for the project also includes structural engineer Renaissance, fire engineer Design Fire Consultants, M&E engineer Ridge and SEC Newgate.
