Developer Glenbrook, working in partnership with Peel L&P, has submitted a planning application to Salford City Council for a 280-apartment scheme at MediaCityUK.
Designed by architect Sheppard Robson, the project is being delivered on behalf of Latimer, Clarion Housing Group’s development arm.
The building is set to range in height from 14 to 17 storeys, and is located on the surface car park immediately next to Booths food store. The £70m development would deliver flats for sale, in a mix of one, two and three-bedroom apartments with residents’ facilities, a gym and retail.
As part of the outline consent for MediaCityUK’s next phase of expansion, the plot previously had planning permission for a 31-storey tower designed by Hodder + Partners.
Ian Sherry, director at Glenbrook, said: “This is the third scheme Glenbrook has delivered with Peel L&P and the first of more developments we plan to deliver with the team at Latimer.
“The scheme’s location on one of the best sites in the internationally recognised MediaCityUK development will undoubtedly be very popular with future residents. Subject to planning approval, we will commence construction in early summer 2020.”
Profits from Latimer are reinvested back into Clarion Housing Group and used to build affordable homes, invest in existing social housing and support communities.
MediaCityUK is a joint venture partnership between Peel L&P and Legal & General Capital. The planner is NJL Consulting.
