Salford industrial-to-resi scheme tipped for consent

Located off Springfield Lane, Si-Si Investments’ scheme proposes 183 build-to-rent homes in buildings rising to 18 storeys.

Si-Si, which owns the site, was previously bringing forward the redevelopment of Springfield Business Centre in partnership with Torsion Developments. However, Torsion is no longer involved in the project.

The plans, which were submitted in October 2022, will go before Salford City Council’s planning committee next week with a recommendation to approve.

The original proposal was for 214 homes across three buildings. However, this has been scaled back to 183 following discussions with stakeholders.

The height of the two linear blocks has been reduced from eight to five storeys and five to four stories respectively.

Overall, the mix of homes comprises six two-bedroom townhouses, 81 one-bed apartments, 91 with two bedrooms and five three-bedroom apartments.

The site is surrounded by residential schemes including Urban Splash’s Irwell Riverside, Property Alliance Group’s Uptown Manchester, and

OMI Architects is leading on design and Euan Kellie Property Solutions is advising on planning.

Great addition to this area – would be lovely if they also redeveloped the opposite riverside.

By Stuart

It’s only “tipped for consent” based on the meeting pack for the planning panel next week – of which it looks like there will be some strong opposition as well given the 130+ objections raised

By Local Resident

Great scheme! Looks like a high quality design which responds well to the context given the mix of lower rise elements next to the existing houses and the taller block on the river. Introducing some activity on the river footpath is also a great benefit to the area and the useability of this route.

Are they objecting because it should be 25 storeys rather than 18?
