Salboy and DOMIS draw up plans for 25-storey Salford tower 

Located next to the developer’s completed Local Blackfriars scheme, the building would provide 250 apartments.

Salboy has submitted a screening request to Salford City Council for the 25-storey project, known as Trinity 2.

This is an early part of the planning process aimed at determining whether an Environmental Impact Assessment of the proposals is required.

According to plans lodged with the city council, the scheme would be constructed on a slither of land between Trinity Way and the Audacious Church. Access to Trinity 2 would be from William Street.

Salboy is proposing 1,000 sq ft of commercial space and is also pitching for four vehicular parking spaces to accompany the tower. A car club would have access to two of the spaces, while the other two would be designated as disabled parking spaces. There would also be 125 cycle parking places.

StudioPower is leading on design and DOMIS will build the scheme. Euan Kellie Property Solutions is the planning consultant.

A consultation, which will provide more details on the proposals, is due to launch in the coming weeks.

“Trinity 2 is another great development that we will deliver from the Salboy and DOMIS partnership,” said Simon Ismail, managing director of Salboy.

“We can’t wait to share these plans during the consultation. Incorporating years of experience into this fantastic scheme, which will be our best yet.”

Elsewhere in Salford, Salboy recently completed the Fifty5ive, a 115-apartment project just off the junction of Blackfriars Road and Trinity Way.  

Work is also ongoing on the 500-home redevelopment of the former Castle Irwell Student Village in Lower Kersal. 

In Manchester, the Fred Done-backed developer is working on various major schemes including Viadux, Old Brewery Gardens, and St Michaels.

Beautiful looking piece of architecture! Just the landmark Trinity Way needs

By Joe Hawkins

Hope the council plans to build new schools. The nearby schools are overcrowded.

Can’t see any balconies!!

I think @balcony monitor needs some new glasses or just doing it for attention. This will be a great addition to Trinity Way with a stepped elevation. Good to see new blood coming up with string designs.

By Andrew

All they need to do is sort out the ugliness of the road which is Trinity Way. Manchester and Salford fear of trees continues unabated.

By Elephant

Just what salford needs, more high rise apartments.😡

Hey Balcony fetishist, you are not looking close enough at the image. There are Juliet balconies. Projecting balconies would significantly detract from this well considered piece of architecture.

The bike shop just around the corner is going to be busy and the busses crowded bringing in the apartment occupiers who have parked the cars miles away!!! 4 carpark spaces, get real


Please Salford City Council don’t permit them to close one lane of the inner ring road again for another 2/3 years like you did for the Eden building.

Looks great but can we have some nice affordable housing sometime soon please?

Might I suggest everyone holds back from lauding the architecture until we’ve seen slightly more than a single cropped CGI devoid of context.

They need more public spaces around here for the new residents who may have children or walk their dogs.

Agree re Trinity Way, it’s the same with Chester Road. Just because it is 2/3 lanes doesn’t meant hat it has to feel like an actual dual carriageway running though the city.
London, New York and countless European cities have multiple lane roads right though the centre that just look and feel like normal but wider roads. Why can’t Manchester do this instead of ugly barriers at every junction and crossing.

By Loganberry

Never heard of Studio Power but by the look of this scheme a very talented set of architects! Hopefully we see more of their work over Salford/Manchester!

It it was in Liverpool the council would reject it or make them reduce to 7 storeys

By BuildItNow!

Ugly and overbearing. It will get built though as SCC/MCC will take investment at any cost.

By Heritage Action

@Anon 12:30 balconies are not an architectural flourish but a basic amenity providing an important function for the the occupants of a building. They should never, ever be removed on a residential building simply because someone deems that they will spoilt the ‘look’ of a building. It’s that sort of arbitrary decision making that has seen most recent blocks in Manchester built without them to the detriment of their residents. In Salford, they’re generally more enlightened and actually adhere to policy such that you will generally see balconies included on most blocks.

By Balcony Watch

Looks great. Even has balconies, though I’m not seeing any drainpipes?

By Tom tum

This will overshadow everything existing. This is all about profit. What about redeveloping this tiny footprint into something that local residents actually want and need rather than yet more flats for overseas investors to profit from. This isn’t about local need. Ugly dark, almost black building – like a huge barrier fencing Salford off from Manchester center. What about greening the area? The area from Factory International north is going to be great. So too could this be great but not with this building.
