ECF’s £12.5m Valette Square completes
The scheme, comprising 33 townhouses on Adelphi Street, was built by John Turner Construction Group and forms part of the development consortium’s £1bn Salford Central masterplan.
Named after artist Pierre Adolphe Valette, the £12.5m development features three- and four-bedroom properties and is located next to Timekeepers Square, a similar cluster of townhouses that completed in 2017.
Buttress Architects designed both Valette Square and Timekeepers Square, which are located close to the Farmer Norton car park, in line to be redeveloped into housing under English Cities Fund’s Salford Crescent masterplan.
The fund, a consortium made up of Muse Developments, Homes England and Legal & General, is prolific in Salford and is also delivering New Bailey, a commercial scheme comprising five new-build office blocks.
New Bailey falls within the 50-acre Salford Central masterplan, of which Valette Square is a part, that will deliver 850 homes once complete.
Leon Guyett, development director at the English Cities Fund, said: “Despite the challenging times we’re in, Valette Square is almost sold out, with only a few homes still available.
“Building on our success in Salford, we believe that Valette Square will further add to the vibrant and diverse community being created here, as we continue to develop the district into a unique and sustainable neighbourhood.”
Within the same masterplan, the fund is also nearing completion of the 173-unit Atelier on Chapel Street. The project topped out last October.
