Glenbrook readies 653-home Old Trafford proposals
The developer has concluded a consultation on plans for Lumina Village, where it is delivering the residential portion of a wider £208m mixed-use scheme.
Last December, a joint venture between Bruntwood Works and Trafford Council appointed Glenbrook to deliver the residential element of the project.
The JV had won outline consent to redevelop the former 12-acre Kellogg’s site in 2020.
Glenbrook plans to deliver 600 apartments and 53 townhouses at Talbot Road site.
A consultation that ran from 8 to 18 March saw Glenbrook present its proposals to the public.
The plans, designed by Sheppard Robson, feature six blocks ranging from three to 20 storeys. 440 build-to-rent units and 195 homes for sale will be delivered across the blocks.
The homes will be a mix of one-, two-, three-, and four-bedroom properties. The majority, 84%, will have one and two bedrooms, while 13% will have three bedrooms. The remaining 3% will have four.
A total of 5,300 sq ft of retail space will be delivered at ground floor level, as well as 200 parking spaces.
Shannon Conway, director at Glenbrook commented: “We have been working collaboratively with Trafford Council and Bruntwood to create an inclusive scheme that will benefit the environment that it sits in.
“The residential offer forms a core part of Lumina Village and we are proposing to deliver at least 15% affordable housing to provide much-needed homes to this area of Trafford.”
Sheppard Robson is the architect, Avison Young is the planning consultant and Re-form is the landscape architect.
The scheme could generate around £1.2m in council tax for Trafford Council annually.
As well as homes, Bruntwood Works and Trafford Council have consent to deliver up to 200,000 sq ft of offices, a primary school and a 100-bedroom hotel.
The former Kellogg’s headquarters, which closed in 2018 after the firm relocated to MediaCityUK, is located opposite Old Trafford Cricket Ground and forms part of Trafford Council’s wider Civic Quarter masterplan, which includes another of the JV’s projects – the redevelopment of Stretford Mall.
