Salboy and Domis detail vision for 26-storey Salford tower
If planning permission can be secured, the £53m project would see the building of 250 flats and nearly 1,000 sq ft of commercial space on land bounded by Trinity Way and William Street.
Euan Kellie Property Solutions submitted the application on behalf of a Salboy and Domis SPV known as Trinity 2.
Domis would be charged with building the project, which will be known as Obsidian upon completion. Construction is expected to last 2.5 years and has the capacity to generate up to 293 direct and indirect jobs a year, according to the planning statement.
Obsidian has an estimated construction cost of £53m, including contingencies and professional fees. That figure comes from a viability statement prepared by Tim Claxton Property, which explains why the project does not include affordable housing.
Under the proposals, Obsidian would be built on the site of a surface-level car park. Access to the building would be from William Street in Salford.
The Studio Power-designed residential tower would be 26 storeys at its tallest. It would offer 31 studios, 93 one-bedroom flats, 111 two-bedroom apartments, and 15 three-bedroom ones.
Residents would be able to enjoy a list of amenities that includes a private dining room, gym, cinema room, package store, coworking space, and a café.
In addition to EKPS and Studio Power, Obsidian’s project team includes landscape architect LDA Design, SK Transport Planning, Salford Archaeology, Design Fire Consultants, and Stephen Levrant Heritage Architecture.
