Plans in for 400 homes at Ordsall Lane
ForViva’s housing arm, ForHousing, has submitted a full planning application to build 394 homes on a 2.8-acre site on Ordsall Lane and Fairbrother Street in Salford.
The application, which was first submitted in 2017 with designs from Purcell, has since been revised. The initial application sought 375 apartments in three blocks reaching up to ten storeys but the revised scheme details plans for an additional 19 homes at a maximum of nine storeys.
The development will be situated on the site of former warehouses next to the Manchester Ship Canal, in a £48m project named Dock 5.
The residential component includes a mix of studio flats, one-bed, two-bed and three-bedroom apartments, and townhouses.
The scheme also comprises 3,272 sq ft of commercial space on the ground floor, intended for a variety of uses including shops, bars and restaurants and offices.
In addition, the application details plans for an onsite car park with 96 spaces, as well as cycle storage for 188 bicycles. The project is expected to complete by 2023.
The architect is Falconer Chester Hall and the planning consultant is Zerum. The parties have been contacted for further information.
Dock 5 will sit alongside developer Fortis’s 375-apartment development, Bridgewater Wharf, and close to Eutopia Homes’s proposed 500-apartment Ordsall Road scheme, for which plans were submitted at the end of last year.
