The £300m scheme from Salboy is on track to complete in 2024, with construction already well underway.

Located on the site of the former Bauer Millet unit off Albion Street in Manchester, the developer’s Viadux project is aiming to be complete within the second quarter of 2024. When it is done, the city will have 375 new apartments in a 40-storey residential tower to the rear of Manchester Central Convention Centre.

Domis Property Group, the construction arm of Salboy, will soon break ground above the site’s grade two-listed viaducts.

Recently released photos show the construction efforts, giving a bird’s eye view of the site. You can see the photos below.

Work is also ongoing regarding the creation of a lift and staircase linking Great Bridgewater Street and the Deansgate-Castlefield tram stop.

Simpson Haugh designed the Viadux project. Others on the development team include Renaissance as structural, civil and heritage engineers, Ridge as MEP and Artal as the project manager and cost consultant.

Excited to see this happen! Hope the office block gets built as well, as I loved the way a tunnel is created for the tram to go through

This must be a challenging but interesting project to work on. Remembering what was there before it’s hard to conceive how this will all look when finished. The whole area right through to the Great Northern is going to look amazing.
