Salford approves plans for key gateway site

Salford City Council has given planning approval for the regeneration of a key site within the Salford Central Development Framework. The site bounded by Trinity Way and Chapel Street is to be developed to create 375 PRS apartments and 870m2 of commercial and retail space.

The approved proposal designed by OMI Architects for UK Land & Property will create two groups of buildings that straddle a lively new public square. The development will open up an important pedestrian route which will link Chapel Street to the New Bailey area, Spinningfields and Manchester city centre.

The development consists of four apartment blocks which vary in height from 11 to 20 storeys. These sit upona podium of two-storey buildings which provide commercial and retail space at ground level while also creating attractive raised courtyard gardens for the residents. The tallest residential block acts as a termination of the view along Chapel Street and also the new route from Manchester city centre. Its tall, slim form is cut back at the lower levels to provide dramatic framed views from Chapel Street into the newly formed public square.

At street level the public realm will be lined with a broad range of shops and commercial outlets which will bring life and activity to the very heart of the development. The southern edge of the site has townhouses with street level front doors. Residents of the PRS apartments will benefit from, a café, gym, private lounge and meeting rooms.

Construction is due to commence in Septembert 2017.

Adam Gray, Senior Associate, OMI Architects, said:
“OMI have a strong track record of designing mixed use residential developments of this scale. In the next year or so we will have built nearly 3000 new homes. This approval is a fantastic opportunity to revitalise a key gateway site on the border of Salford and Manchester. We have worked hard with the Salford’s Regeneration team to create the potential for an interesting, active street scene to emerge, whilst enacting the objectives of Salford’s aspirations for the wider neighbourhood. The new concourse through the viaduct archway will create a vibrant public space and fundamentally reinforce pedestrian links between Salford and Manchester.”
