Trafford Council has appointed the Bolton-based contractor to deliver an £18m residential scheme, including affordable homes, on the site of the former court building on Washway Road.
Trafford bought the 2.4-acre site in 2018 for an undisclosed sum before appointing contractor PP O’Connor to demolish the buildings.
The court was left empty in 2016 after closing as part of a Government cost-cutting initiative.
Last July, Trafford began the search for a development partner to build out the scheme. The council expects the project to take three years to build.
Cllr James Wright, Trafford Council’s executive member for housing and regeneration, said: “This is a flagship scheme in the centre of the town and meets the council’s policy of building more housing on brownfield sites.
“Along with the delivery of new homes, the project will contribute to the regeneration of Sale town centre ensuring that the type of development delivered will provide the greatest benefit for Sale and its residents.”
Ted Macdougal, development director for Seddon, said: “Our involvement in this key residential development presented another opportunity to work alongside Trafford Council to build much-needed new homes for people in the area.”
