Salford McDonalds, KFC, and casino to be demolished
Imco Holdings has lodged plans to knock down the buildings at Riverside Retail Park in Ordsall to pave the way for its redevelopment.
UAE-based Imco owns the site, according to Land Registry. Developer Forshaw Land and Property’s branding appears on planning documents submitted for the demolition of the Grosvenor Casino, McDonalds, and KFC.
Forshaw is also developing the 160-apartment Pavillion Wharf on an adjacent plot.
As part of the planning application for that scheme, an outline for how the redevelopment of the Riverside Retail Park might look was also provided.
This indicated that as well as Pavillion Wharf, another four blocks between nine and 25 storeys could be delivered where the casino and two fast food restaurants currently stand.
Cassidy + Ashton is advising Imco on the demolition proposals. To learn more, search for reference number 23/82023/DEMCON on Salford City Council’s planning portal.
Riverside Retail Park is located opposite Regent Retail Park, which is the subject of proposals from Henley Investment Management to be redeveloped into 3,200 homes.
Early-stage plans for Henley’s scheme also feature a 264-metre tower, which would be the third tallest in the country if built today.
Pipeline developments in this area amount to a westward extension of Manchester city centre.
Over the border in Manchester, Renaker is on site delivering River Gardens, the redevelopment of the Trinity Islands site.
This scheme comprises 1,950 apartments across four towers.
