Whitaker four tower resi plans approved

Developer Daren Whitaker's latest residential scheme has received planning permission from Salford City Council.

The mixed-use development at Wilburn Street Basin includes 491 residential units across four buildings of between eight storeys and 21 storeys in height, set around a communal courtyard.

The apartments include a mix of one-, two- and three-bedrooms.

The development is on land between Ordsall Lane and Regent Retail Park, a 3-acre vacant plot next to the Campanile Hotel.

The proposal was submitted by WB Developments, a company managed by Whitaker. The scheme was designed by OMI Architects.

Paul Butler Associates provided planning advice.

Various companies owned by Whitaker are on site or are in the planning process for residential developments across Greater Manchester. LQ Developments gained planning permission in October for a Hodder & Partners-designed tower in Castlefield, Pinnacle Developments is on site with 500 apartments at Greengate in Salford, and CS Developments is building 282 flats in Cambridge Street as part of the Macintosh Mills redevelopments.
