Forshaw plans latest Ordsall homes in £35m tower

Plans for a £35m building next to the River Irwell in Salford have been revealed by Bolton-based developer Forshaw Land & Property Group.

The proposals located on Derwent Street in Ordsall, would provide 183 apartments, range from 11 to 27 storeys, and include a cinema, gym and retail kiosk for residents.

Plans were submitted to Salford City Council by Lichfields on behalf of Forshaw earlier this month. DLA Design is the architect.

The scheme is near to another project by Forshaw also recently submitted for planning approval, a £40m development across three residential buildings, on Worrall Street.

Lichfields said the Derwent Street build would take place over an 18-month construction period.

Nathan Matta, associate director at the Manchester office of Lichfields, said: “This is an underused brownfield site located in a highly sustainable urban area.

“The proposals fit in with the goal of transforming the Ordsall Riverside Corridor, and this gateway location means the development can become a landmark building on the Salford side of the River Irwell.”

The flats are a mix of one, two and three-bedroom apartments.

If approved by the council work will start on the development in 2018.
