Developer reveals 250-apartment Salford scheme

Forshaw Land & Property Group has unveiled £40m plans for 252 apartments across three buildings at Worrall Street, Ordsall.

The Bolton firm, which puts the value of the Worrall Street scheme at £41m, has appointed planning consultancy Lichfields to take forward the proposals, with plans submitted to Salford City Council this week. DLA Design is the architect.

Nathan Matta, associate director at the Manchester office of Lichfields, said: “The proposal will create a high quality and well–designed residential development that will result in the removal of existing unsightly industrial buildings and will significantly enhance the local neighbourhood.

“This exciting development responds positively to the council’s aspirations for the area.”

The scheme comprises 124 one-bedroom apartments, 21 two-bedroom duplex apartments, 80 two-bedroom apartments, one three-bedroom duplex apartment and 26 three-bedroom apartments. It will include public space improvements, landscaping and car parking.

Lichfields said that the project will sustain 211 on-site construction jobs and support 319 off-site jobs in construction-related industries over the 18-month build programme.
