The Hawkins\Brown-designed scheme is next to English Cities Fund’s Slate Yard scheme in Salford, and will feature two towers of 23 storeys joined by a six-storey podium.
The planning application has been submitted for what is currently known as Salford Central Plot C, part of the Salford Central masterplan being delivered over a decade by ECF.
The site sits between Ordsall Chord and the River Irwell, and is designed to be a continuation of the Slate Yard PRS scheme, which is made up of three blocks, rising in height to 21 storeys.
Plot C will total 392 apartments, with174 one-bedroom, 196 two-bedroom, and 22 three-bedroom flats.
At ground level, will be a series of linked public realm areas along the riverside.
In the planning application, architect Hawkins\Brown described the design as responding to the “narrow profile” of the plot, while the wider site was “in flux” as it undergoes a development boom on the Salford city edge.
“The adjacent Slate Yard development is nearing completion and generates the immediate built context. In addition to these buildings, the Ordsall Chord is a significant piece of new infrastructure which creates a striking back-drop to the site.”
Plans also include cycle and walkways to link the Irwell towpath and Princes Bridge crossing into the wider New Bailey site.
English Cities Fund is a joint venture between Muse Developments, Legal & General and Homes England. The planning consultant for Plot C was DPP.
