A planning application has been submitted for a 31-apartment block off Higher Road in Urmston.
The site is occupied by a two-storey office building and the vacant single-storey Urmston Evangelical Church, both of which are to be demolished under the proposals from developer Challenger Building Services,
The 24,000 sq ft scheme comprises nine one-bedroom and 22 two-bedroom apartments over four floors, plus a 1,700 sq ft roof terrace.
The development aims to tackle a shortage of housing in the area and make up for a 53% shortfall in the delivery of housing since 2015, according to the planning documents.
Satplan is the planner and Howard & Seddon is the architect.
A planning application for 29 apartments was submitted by Levertech, former occupier of the two storey office building on the site, in July 2017 but was subsequently withdrawn in October 2018 amid concerns over the cost of the project.
