Developer Fortis Group Holdings is close to finishing the final phase of its £90m residential scheme in Salford, with residents expected to start moving in later this month.
Adelphi Wharf is Fortis’ third newbuild housing scheme in Salford, following the completion of the 53-unit Bridgewater Gate in 2017 and the 22-unit Bridgewater Point in 2019, both on Ordsall Lane. An additional two schemes are under development at present – Fortis Quay, planned to have 898 apartments, and Bridgewater Wharf with 376 apartments.
Comprising 602 apartments and townhouses, Adelphi Wharf is among the largest of Fortis’ projects. The scheme north of Chapel Street also includes rooftop gardens, a gym and a residents’ car park.
The second and third phases have included the delivery of 380 apartments in total, while the first phase of townhouses and apartments is already complete.
Adelphi Wharf’s main contractor is Beaumont Morgan and the architect is DMS Architecture. In 2018, Fortis secured a £20.7m loan from lender OakNorth Bank to help fund the development of the scheme. Completion was originally targeted for December 2019 but was delayed amid pandemic-related disruption last year.
Kieran Moore, director of Fortis Group Holdings, said: “The completion of Adelphi Wharf is an exciting moment for Fortis, being our largest residential scheme to date. We’re proud to be a prominent developer in the regeneration of Salford.”
Xenia Estates has been appointed as the block’s management company once the project is complete.
