Developer LPC Living has won consent for a £50m residential-led project on the site of the former Radclyffe school in Salford.
The scheme will create a 50,000 sq ft Morrisons superstore, 25,000 sq ft of non-food retail/commercial units around 300 affordable homes.
Alastair Shepherd, director at Liverpool-based architects of the scheme, Falconer Chester Hall, said: "This is great news as the scheme will really help to improve the lives of people in Ordsall. We consulted extensively with local residents before designing the scheme and their opinions and ideas are reflected in the final proposals."
The scheme is part of the £150m Heart of Ordsall Development framework and proposals include a tree-lined landscaped boulevard sweeping up to St Clement's Church, offering superb views of the development. Homes available include houses, duplexes and apartments with 50% offering three-bedrooms and aimed at a family market.
LPC Living has already delivered 340 homes across Ordsall Estate, also designed by Falconer Chester Hall, and a further 56 townhouses are due on site in early 2010.
