Peel proposes revamp of ‘underutilised’ Salford industrial site
Plans to build a 110,000 sq ft multi-let scheme off Liverpool Road between Eccles and Irlam have been lodged with the city council.
Peel Waters wants to deliver eight BREEAM excellent units ranging from 4,338 sq ft to 39,460 sq ft on a 6.3-acre site immediately north of the AJ Bell Stadium and a short distance away from Port Salford to the west.
Primarily used for storage, the site is currently “underutilised”, according to a planning statement by WSP.
Peel acquired it in 2012 from White Recycling, which went bust three years later. The developer looked at the possibility of delivering residential on the site but discounted it due to viability constraints.
AEW Architects is advising Peel on the scheme’s design.
Peter Linstead, development director of logistics at Peel Waters said: “We are pleased to be submitting this planning application for Halo West; a best-in-class development with excellent connectivity.
“The development of this brownfield site will create local employment opportunities and enable businesses to serve both the local and wider region by making the best use of the location, local infrastructure and the scheme’s strategic proximity to the motorway network.”
