As part of the £1 billion Salford Central regeneration project in Greater Manchester, England, plans have been submitted for the construction of a 22-storey building that would house nearly 200 homes.
The English Cities Fund (ECF), a joint venture between national regeneration company Muse, Legal & General, and Homes England, has applied to the Salford City Council for permission to carry out the project which will be the second phase of new homes at New Bailey.
If the scheme receives planning permission, construction is expected to begin in Q1 2023.
The 22-Storey building design overview
Hawkins Brown designed the structure, which would offer an additional 196 homes with spectacular city and waterside views.
Residents would have access to full management and concierge service, as well as extensive amenity areas on both the ground floor and the 22nd floor. This would include a private gym and fitness studio, as well as a shared workspace and communal lounging areas with river views.
Adjacent to the building is Novella, an ECF development of 211 homes, where the first buyers will move in August of this year. Approximately half of the homes in the project have been sold before construction is completed. For first-time buyers, the last few Help to-Buy homes are still available.
Remarks on the Salford Central regeneration’s 22-storey building project
“We’re thrilled with how the sales at Novella have advanced,” said Max Bentham, senior development manager at ECF. “We’re pleased to submit planning for the next phase of homes in Salford Central. We’ve worked hard for nearly two decades to reshape this area of town, providing a variety of homes, fantastic workspace, public areas, and amenities, bringing investment, new jobs, and communities, and delivering real benefits to the residents.”
ECF is currently working on urban regeneration projects throughout the UK, as well as the £2.5 billion, 240-acre Salford Crescent transformation.
