Morgan Sindall has won a contract to build a multi-storey car park as part of a £650m regeneration scheme by the English Cities Fund in Salford, Greater Manchester.
The 615-space car park is the second phase of the New Bailey area of the scheme and has a development value of £11.7m.
The project is earmarked for completion by the end of 2014.
ECf, alongside Salford Council, is delivering the scheme in two areas: New Bailey and Chapel Street.
ECf is a joint venture between Morgan Sindall’s urban regeneration arm Muse Developments, LGP and the Homes and Communities Agency.
The New Bailey area received a £60m funding boost last month by Legal & General Property to ensure the second phase went ahead.
The car park will cover nine levels and provide public parking provisions accessible directly from the inner relief road where it joins Irwell Street. A pre-let is also in place with NCP.
ECf development director Phil Mayall said: “The start of construction of the multi-storey car park marks the beginning of the second phase of development at New Bailey and this will be followed by a 125,000 sq ft office, which will begin in September.
“We will then have a total of four schemes on site within the 44-acre Salford Central scheme with a combined development value of £95m – and many more to follow.”
ECf’s major regeneration includes the creation of almost 1,000 new homes and 11,000 new jobs.
