Following a public consultation earlier this month, One Heritage has wasted no time in submitting a planning application for the 55-storey tower at Salford’s Greengate.
The 545-apartment scheme would be the tallest in Salford and the second-tallest in Manchester if built, and is being developed by One Heritage Property Developments, established by a Hong Kong-based fund to bring forward the scheme.
Designed by OMI Architects, the scheme at New Bridge Street includes a walkway through the base of the podium, and public realm.
At the consultation event earlier this month, the developer’s representatives told Place North West the project would start on site next year, subject to planning.
Sales of apartments are being co-ordinated by One Heritage Holding Group. In the UK, One Heritage is led by Jason Upton, based in Manchester, and Yiu Tak Cheung, based in Hong Kong.
Euan Kellie Property Solutions is advising on planning. Layer Landscape Architects is developing the public realm and riverside link. The professional team also includes Crookes Walker Consulting; SK Transport; GIA; Omega Fire; Box Clever Consulting; and DP Squared.
Awais Shahid, director of Atzaro Real Estate and project director for One Heritage said: “We are delighted that our landmark regeneration proposals have now been submitted to Salford City Council, the project team have created a truly unique building which will be a welcome addition to the skyline.
“I would like to thank residents who attended our recent consultation event and it was great to see the strong levels of support for our project and the benefits that it will bring to Greengate and the wider area. We are already in talks with a lead contractor to deliver the project and we hope following a successful determination, we can commence construction in late 2020.”
Nick Berry of OMI Architects added: “It’s fantastic to see plans for One Heritage Tower take a step forward today with this planning application and that local residents are supportive of the iconic design we have developed for the scheme.
“We have worked closely with Salford City Council to create a building that not only ties in with Salford’s aspirations for the area but will make a significant contribution to the skyline of this emerging quarter of the city.”
