Residents can now move into the first 121 homes of the Salford scheme, which will ultimately have a total of 394 furnished and unfurnished apartments and townhouses for rent.

The homes sit on 2.8 acres off Ordsall Lane, near the River Irwell. Rents start at £700 per month.

The entire development is slated to complete in September 2022, a year earlier than had previously been expected. When finished, residents will be able to enjoy a gym, communal work-from-home spaces, parcel lockers, and pet-walking and cleaning services.

“It is fantastic to see our vision for Dock5 come to life,” said For Living strategic lead Mark Edwards. “This is an exciting time for Ordsall bringing together an amazing legacy for the area with a bright future.”

“Welcoming the first residents to the neighbourhood is a significant milestone for the community and for the scheme,” he continued.

“The development reflects Salford’s buzzing personality and is perfect for those wanting to enjoy city centre living without the expensive price tag.”

Architecture firm Falconer Chester Hall worked on Dock 5. Planning consent for the project was garnered with the help of planning consultants Zerum.
