Eyes down for Donard’s Salford Bingo site homes
The former Buzz Bingo Hall in Pendleton is to be redeveloped into 268 homes under plans lodged with the local council.
Following a public consultation earlier this year, Donard Affordable Homes is pushing on with the 100% affordable development on the corner of Hankinson Way and Belvedere Road close to Salford Shopping Centre.
The scheme, designed by POD Architects and known as Albion Court, proposes 117 one-bedroom apartments, 137 with two bedrooms, 10 three-bedroom flats and a quartet of three-bedroom maisonettes.
It is Donard’s intention to transfer the completed homes under a lease-based finance arrangement to a housing association, according to a planning statement prepared by Euan Kellie Property Solutions.
The company is developing a similar scheme in Bristol where it plans to develop 244 homes on the former Bart Ingredients site off York Road.
The project team for the Salford development includes Hoare Lea, Layer.studio, SK Transport Planning, E3P, Currie & Brown and Hydrock.
