Fortis completes latest Salford scheme

Developer Fortis and its sales partner Knight Knox have announced the completion of work at Bridgewater Point, an already sold-out residential scheme on Ordsall Lane.

Valued at £29.4m, Bridgewater Point follows neighbouring project Bridgewater Gate, which completed in July 2017.

Bridgewater Point comprises 207 apartments, ranging from studios to a single four-bedroom dwelling, and 13 townhouses. Facilities include a landscaped communal garden and a gym for residents.

Andy Phillips, commercial director at Knight Knox, said: “We are delighted by the completion of Bridgewater Point. Salford is one of the most in-demand areas in the UK and apartments of the quality found at Bridgewater Point are in short supply.

“With both Manchester city centre and MediaCityUK so close by it is no surprise that the development has proven so popular, especially amongst young professionals moving to the area.”

Kieran Moore, director of Fortis Developments, said: “Following the success of Bridgewater Gate we had high hopes for Bridgewater Point and it has exceeded all our expectations. We are proud to be playing a part in the ongoing regeneration of Salford and have already welcomed the first residents into their new homes.”

Fortis and Knight Knox have now worked on 20 completed developments together, the partners said. Fortis has become a prominent developer in Salford particularly, with Bridgewater Wharf, a £72m 376-aoartment PRS scheme starting on site in September 2018. Other projects include Fortis Quay and Adelphi Wharf.

Typically shambolic in it’s vulgarity. To point out, there’s a gym within a 5 minute walk, another way of developers to add value to something not worth the effort of construction. If this stands in 15 years, Salford hasn’t achieved.

It already looks 10 years old! Poor architecture.

Salford Council really do need to kick their planning department into gear. Stuff like this can’t be allowed in future if Salford’s ambitions are to be realised – cheap rubbish. The masterplan for Ordsall Riverside is for an ambitious riverside area. If they carry on allowing stuff like this, the reality will be far removed from the promise.

Cheap and awful! This will look dreadful in a few years

Cheap Tat!!

It’s not complete. No gym in site. Car park is not ready for residents to use. Garden is now where near finished

By Resident

A great looking development that is assisting in meeting the housing crisis in Salford at the moment. Without development such as this the demand will far out strip the supply only contributing to the rising property prices in the north west.

Sad to see Salford going for more lowest-common-denominator crap. The authority with possibly the most positive development potential in inner GM, yet it keeps shooting itself in the foot

This development is far from finished, has anyone been to see it lately? It’s covered with scaffolding and fences – there is clearly much more work to be done. It seems to of been a terribly managed project from the start, not to mention how tacky it looks.

By Tom

This is a joke! It isn’t completed, there are no gym facilities, no gardens the build quality is terrible, mould on walls etc.

This company should be disgusted

By A resident

The real news story here is that residents such as myself are living in unsafe and unfinished accommodation. Black mould on walls. Massive leaks. No water for days. No parking. Garden still has diggers in it. I have been paying for facilities over the last 5 months (such as a parking space) that hasn’t even been finished!
