Plans in for high-rise Greengate flats
Silverlane Developments has submitted a planning application for a 310-apartment scheme in Greengate, Salford.
The scheme, called Norton Court, was designed by Jeffrey Bell Architects.
The development will replace a surface car park near to the River Irwell and Abito Building with two residential towers, of 34 and 14 storeys, and includes landscaping and basement parking.
The proposed scheme will provide 300 apartments, through a mix of one, two and three bed units, totalling 275,000 sq ft. There will also be 5,000 sq ft of commercial space.
Additionally the development will link into the riverside walkway along the River Irwell which runs to the north east of the site.
Indigo Planning advised on the application.
Greengate is identified as the historic centre of Salford and is made up of a mix of uses, including industrial, commercial, residential and retail. The site is part of a wider residential-led mixed use regeneration strategy led by Salford City Council promoting 1,826 homes in the area over the next 15 years.
Jeffrey Bell, director of Jeffrey Bell Architects, said: “The Norton Court scheme is an identifiable landmark development providing 300 residential apartments within the Greengate Quarter. A development that epitomises Salford’s confidence and creates a distinctive identity for this part of the city.”
The application is due to be determined by Salford City Council towards the end of October.
Other members of the consultant team include Royal Haskoning, Croft Transport Solutions, TACE and WML Consulting.
