Domis primed to start Anchorage Gateway in January

The contractor will start the demolition of a vacant office building on the site in the new year, paving the way for the construction of developer Cole Waterhouse’s 28-storey Salford apartment block. 

The main phase of construction of the 290-apartment development, next to Anchorage tram stop in Salford Quays, will begin in May and completion is scheduled for July 2023, according to a construction management statement prepared by Domis. 

Cole Waterhouse bought the Anchorage Gateway site from COIF Charities Property Fund for an undisclosed sum last August before submitting plans to redevelop the site.

Architect Chapman Taylor designed the L-shaped development, which features 4,000 sq ft of commercial space as well as public realm.  

There will be two landscaped terrace gardens for residents, on the mezzanine and at level 19. The rooftop penthouse apartments will have private terraces.  

Outline consent was secured for a tower of up to 31 storeys last November but the height of the building has since been reduced to 28 storeys.  

The project team for Anchorage Gateway includes structural engineer Renaissance, mechanical and engineering contractor Novo, landscape architect Exterior Architecture, project manager and quantity surveyor Henry Riley, and Ward Hadaway providing legal advice.  

Nearby, Domis is close to completing the £72m No1 Old Trafford for Cole Waterhouse. The 354-apartment development, located opposite the new Wharfside Metrolink stop at Trafford Quays, topped out in July.

God what a terrible looking building, another eye sore in the making

Another ugly “luxurious” tower.

The future of office blocks is to build them into swanky appartments. There will be a lot more office blocks being turned into flats next year because a lot more office workers are now working from home.

More of the same abysmal architecture encasing ‘luxury’ flats.
