English Cities Fund has submitted an outline application for the residential-led development of a large part of Salford Central to deliver a further 843 units including a 33-storey tower.
The site on the banks of the River Irwell was initially reserved half for offices and half residential in the outline application approved in 2010 by Salford City Council. The plan is now to satisfy office supply in New Bailey next door, also part of ECf’s wider regeneration programme.
Currently used for surface parking, the land is bounded by Trinity Way and the River Irwell and sits between other developments by Scarborough at Middlewock Locks, Allied London at St John’s and Spinningfields.
There are already two residential buildings under construction by ECf at the site.
The project team consists of DPP Planning, AHR Architects, project manager Buro Four, HED Landscape Architects, highways engineer WSP Parsons Brinckerhoff, engineers Integra Consulting and Hannan Associates, fire expert Exova and acoustic engineer AEC.
