X1 grows Salford apartment pipeline

X1 Developments has submitted its latest planning application for a residential scheme in Salford, next to Scarborough Group’s £700m Middlewood Locks development.

Designed by DK Architects, X1 The Landmark would be built on the corner of Liverpool Street and Oldfield Road, and total 191 apartments. The flats would be targeted at the high-end market, with one, two and three-bedroom apartments, and duplex townhouses with private terraces.

The block steps from five to 14 storeys, and according to the design statement submitted with the application would be a “gateway development into Middlewood Locks from the West”.

Middlewood Locks has outline planning consent for a new neighbourhood of 2,200 homes and 750,000 sq ft of commercial space, being delivered by a joint venture between Scarborough Group and Chinese company Hualing Group, and Singaporean firm Metro Holdings.

The Landmark is the latest in several projects to be brought forward by X1 Developments in Manchester and Salford. The developer is on site with X1 The Gateway in Salford, totalling 191 apartments, and recently completed 140 flats at X1 The Exchange in Salford Quays, as well as the 111-unit first phase of construction at X1 Eastbank in Ancoats.

Looks really good. But will it look anything like that on completion? Too many developers are taking liberties during the construction process and making “minor” changes to the design and cladding which are anything but minor. For sure value engineering is standard practice but there is value engineering and there is taking the p!$$ ! We deserve better.

The building will block natural light from Hot Bed Press next door, which is already established and in the process of renovation. I also feel the building is a little unsympathetic to its position.
