Renaker launches Trinity Islands consultation
The SimpsonHaugh-designed scheme consists of four towers ranging from 39 to 60 storeys, as well as a considerable amount of public realm.
Trinity Islands, if approved as illustrated in the consultation, will create 2,000 new apartments. The apartments would have a mixture of one, two and three bedrooms.
Ground floors on the towers would host residential amenities. Initial layout illustrations show only two commercial units for the scheme.
The development is divided into two sites. The first, labelled C by Renaker, is 2.2 acres and would hold two diamond-form towers, each with a crystalline façade. C slopes downward to the north, where it is bound by the River Irwell. It sits on the west of Trinity Way.
The second site, known as D, is also 2.2 acres. Located on the east of Trinity Way, it slopes towards the River Irwell on its northern and western sides. The two towers on D would have curved façades.
Both towers would have discrete car parks. Renaker said it would be following a sustainable transport strategy for the project, providing around 30% car parking that would include 10% EV charging points. There would also be potential to increase that EV charging point amount in the future. Plans also call for 100% delivery of the cycle parking provision.
TPM Landscape is the landscape designer for the scheme. Deloitte LLP is the planning consultant.
Trinity Islands has been years in the making, with planning approval secured by original developers Allied London in 2017 for five residential towers ranging from 25 to 65 storeys.
Renaker purchased the 4.4-acre site in 2018. It said on the consultation site that the company wanted to improve those original plans by providing better access to the riverside walkway and boosting sunlight conditions at the ground level.
Renaker aims to submit a planning application for Trinity Islands this autumn. Consultation on the scheme ends on 26 August.
