Plans in for £75m Adelphi Wharf

Knight Knox International and Fortis Developments has submitted a planning application for a buy-to-let residential scheme in Adelphi Street, Salford.

The 450,000 sq ft development on the bank of the River Irwell will be let and managed by Fortis Lettings & Management.

Adelphi Wharf will be completed over three phases. There are 580 apartments and townhouses included in the first phase, which is due to be completed in August 2016 subject to planning.

Knight Knox launched the scheme to potential investors this morning. Prices for an apartment start at £94,995.

Kieran Moore, director of Fortis, said: "Fortis Developments has worked closely with Salford City Council and Urban Vision to ensure that the design and visual impact of Adelphi Wharf complements the area, whilst incorporating modern architecture along the city's water front.

"A riverside walkway will be created to offer easy access to the waterfront, allowing residents to enjoy Salford's surroundings with ease. Adelphi Wharf is an exciting project, which we expect the whole area to benefit from, enhancing the city's growing reputation and breathing new life into this currently vacant site."

Good to see that walks along the River are to be opened up too

By Paul Blackburn

Good to see Eastern Bloc architecture come to Salford! It is hard to believe that on the back of the "ugly sisters" at Greengate, Salford Regeneration and Planning team’s have managed to surpass themselves with their latest scheme. Salford Council must be delighted to employ team’s of so called experts who continue to deliver schemes such as this! Personally I think they should hang their heads in shame.

By Salford deserves better

Looks like a good development – Tally ho!

Salford Council don’t design schemes, they review them in line with policy… But yeah, very unattractive scheme unfortunately.

They’re safe, though, innit..?

By Roy

Scouseboi I dont think anyone suggested the Council design schemes. However the regeneration and planning teams do have a big influence and if this scheme reflects their vision for the regeneration of Salford over the next 20 years then the people of Salford have once again been let down by the Council.

By Two steps back

Councils don’t have half as big an influence as you might think. What’s wrong with it anyway?

Your appointment at Specsavers is over due!

I think the comment from "Pickles" saying |"whats wrong with it, says more about Pickles than about the look and design of the development. Here is a wonderful opportunity to inject some imagination into a new much needed project. It looks to me like it has been designed with "only" price in mind, I’m sure anyone living there will become depressed quite quickly because of the "look " of the place. The developer could at least have asked some architectural graduates to put forward some suggestions. ????
