Glenbrook is developing the 17-storey High Definition for Latimer, the development arm of Clarion Housing Group.
Contractor Bowmer + Kirkland has reached the highest point of the 280-apartment Salford scheme ahead of completion in November 2022.
High Definition, previously known as Broadway Square, is being constructed on a former surface car park at MediaCityUK.
Designed by Sheppard Robson, the 231,000 sq ft, two-building development ranges in height between 14 and 17 storeys.
The £70m proposal received detailed planning consent in February 2020 and will provide 132 one-bedroom, 136 two-bedroom and 12 three-bedroom apartments.
Latimer will offer 100 homes for sale on a shared ownership basis, with the remainder being for private sale.
The project is one of a growing number for Clarion in Manchester as it aims to step in to fill the city’s affordable housing void.
The project team for High Definition includes NJL Consulting as the planner, Abacus as the employer’s agent, SGI as structural engineer, Ridge as M&E consultant, and fund monitoring by AA Projects.
Liam Gordon, project manager at Glenbrook, said: “The development is coming forward at a time when people are seeing the true value of living in a community environment and one that is near to green and blue spaces with access to excellent leisure and cultural facilities.
“MediaCityUK offers the full package and we look forward to working with our partners to reach completion in November 2022.”
Richard Cook, group director of development for Latimer, said: “Our commitment to supporting people in achieving home ownership continues and we are delighted at the progress made by the entire team which will see 100 affordable homes available in this location.”
Elsewhere at MediaCityUK, Peel Holdings has consent for six buildings comprising more than 1,000 homes and around 475,000 sq ft of offices.
