Two towers comprising 562 apartments are due for completion by April, while demolition to pave the way for the construction of another pair of residential buildings is imminent.

The four blocks that make up Fortis Group’s Fortis Quay development are called Northill, Amplify, Mariners Quay and Victoria Quay. In total they will provide almost 900 homes.

Mariners Quay and its neighbour Victoria Quay are to be constructed on the site of two former Bruntwood office blocks, Furness House and Custom House. 

Fortis Group had originally planned to repurpose the existing buildings, converting them into apartments. 

However, having stripped the former offices back to their concrete cores, Fortis rowed back on that plan amid viability concerns and instead opted to demolish the existing buildings. 

Salford City Council approved the change of tact in March this year and demolition work to clear the site for the new-build blocks is imminent, Place North West understands. 

Aspen Woolf, a property investment firm, has launched Mariners Quay and would-be residents can now reserve apartments within the building. 

“Mariners Wharf offers one of the last true Quayside opportunities in Salford,” said Russell Midgley, director at Aspen Woolf. 

“Property at this growing iconic Manchester location is becoming harder to find. Greater Manchester has become one of the hottest property markets in the UK, experiencing a 47.6% increase in price value over the last five years alone.”
