Works are to commence on a £35 million ‘landmark’ Salford building.
Representing Forshaw Land & Property Group, Salford City Council approved the proposals submitted by national planning and development consultancy Lichfields.
The development will comprise of 180 apartments, in a part-21, part-14 and part 11-storey building and will include:
- a combination of 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments,
- a gym,
- a community room,
- a commercial unit.
Located between the Lowry Wharf development and the casino on Derwent Street, it is anticipated that the development will generate over 230 jobs through the construction stage, per Lichfields.
It is projected by Lichfields that when complete, roughly £2.3 million will be spent annually in the local area by residents, which will be enhancing the local economy.
The planning director at Lichfields in Manchester, Nathan Matta, said:
“We consider that the scheme will be seen as a landmark development and one which will positively complement the development currently taking place along the Riverside corridor.
We welcome the support the council has shown to this high-quality development which we believe will further enhance the character and place-making ability of the Ordsall Riverside corridor.”
Per Forshaw, assisting in the funding of the new Ordsall Lane bus service and car club costs will be the s.106 contributions from Forshaw.
Additional benefits include:
- the upgrade of an existing ramped access and public realm area,
- widening of the towpath,
- the introduction of opportunities for natural surveillance,
- enhanced security.
