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.
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.
