ForLiving wraps £53m Dock 5 in Salford

Construction has completed on the 394-home co-living community in Ordsall, which was designed by architect Falconer Chester Hall.

Main contractor Bridgestone Construction finished work on the first phase of the £53m project in 2021. Earlier this month, the final 121 apartments and townhouses completed and transitioned to being on the market.

The recently completed final phase also included the community’s amenities, including a private cinema and a gym.

Studio Henderson was the interior designer for the project.

Set on 2.8 acres off Ordsall Lane, Dock 5 comprises three blocks of between four and eight storeys.

Apartments range from 375 sq ft to 1,065 sq ft and are available for between £850 a month and £1,100 a month depending on the size.

Mark Edwards, strategic lead at ForLiving, said: “Demand for quality homes at rents people can afford in Salford and Manchester has exploded in the past five years, so we knew how important it was to stay on track.

“The past two years have presented lots of challenges for the construction industry, with supply chains and labour all being impacted.

“But we chose to push on with Dock 5, finding ways to work around potential problems and hiring local people wherever possible.”

Maybe FCH could have a word with Crosslane about getting their co-living scheme on site at Liverpool`s Baltic.
