Developer Cole Waterhouse’s proposals for a 28-storey apartment building at Salford Quays are set for sign-off by the city council later this week.
Designed by architect Chapman Taylor, the development comprises a mix of 290 one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments.
The proposals, lodged with Salford City Council in April, also feature 4,000 sq ft of commercial space, two shared landscaped terraces on both the mezzanine and 19th floors, and rooftop penthouse apartments with private terraces.
In total, the L-shaped building, which will be known as Anchorage Gateway, will comprise 250,640 sq ft.
Cole Waterhouse purchased the site, previously home to a 21,000 sq ft office, from COIF Charities Property Fund for an undisclosed sum last August.
The office on the site, on the corner of The Quays and Anchorage Quay, was formerly home to Barclays but has been vacant for more than two years.
The project team for Anchorage Gateway includes planner WSP, structural engineering firm Renaissance, mechanical and engineering contractor Novo, landscape architect Exterior Architecture, project manager and quantity surveyors Henry Riley, and Ward Hadaway providing legal advice.
Salford City Council has recommended the reserved matters application be approved having granted outline consent last November.
Outline consent was secured for a tower of up to 31 storeys.
Cole Waterhouse is also bringing forward the two-tower No1 Old Trafford, a 214,000 sq ft residential scheme nearby, being built by contractor Domis.
