The Crescent Fred Done
The Crescent will deliver 405 flats for the private rented sector

Plans in for 450 Salford apartments

Bet Fred billionaire Fred Done’s property company has submitted a planning application for 405 flats on the site of the former Black Horse Hotel, while Portergate Developments has drawn up proposals for a riverside block of 45 apartments in Blackfriars Road.

Known as The Crescent, the development by Property (Done) Limited will deliver 153 one-bedroom and 248 two-bedroom apartments over three buildings, the tallest of which will be 21 storeys. There will also be four townhouses. The scheme includes car parking, landscaping and 8,890 sq ft of commercial space.

The properties will be marketed at the private rented sector.

Euan Kellie Property Solutions is advising on The Crescent, which was designed by 5plus Architects. The project is the sister scheme to Done’s 380-unit Trinity Way PRS development which was approved in March.

Swithenbank Property Consultants is the project manager.

Riverside House phase two Portergate

Riverside House’s second phase was designed by Studio KMA

Meanwhile, Portergate has outlined proposals for a £9m block of flats between Broughton Bridge and Trinity Way, as the second phase of its Riverside House development.

Portergate is seeking planning consent to create 45 one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments, along with a convenience store and café, next to the student accommodation building on the banks of the River Irwell.

The apartments, many with balconies and river views, will be managed by Portergate’s property management arm and are aimed at young professionals, key workers and first time buyers.

The architect is Studio KMA.

Your Comments

Some great new developments, although it is becoming a shame that none of the councils are stopping buy to let developments. Surely they need to step in and allow some of the flats to be bought? How on earth can young professionals eager to get onto the properly ladder buy in or around the city centre if all new flats are built specifically for the private rented sector!

Wasn’t there to be a footbridge over to Peel park? What happened to those plans?

Footbridge would just be muggers escape route…

By Sprinter

The footbridge is still planned although I don’t know when we’ll see it, there are new homes to be built by countryside on the other side of the meadows and the increased student population at Peel Park will see an increase in the numbers who will use this bridge.

Sprinter, this is the wrong website for you.
