Forshaw submits plans for £35m resi towers

Developer Forshaw Land and Property has submitted plans for a £35m residential project in Salford.

The developer has lodged proposals for the scheme, which ranges between 27 and 11 storeys in height and includes 183 apartments.

Plans for the project, which has been designed by architects DLA, also include a cinema, gym and retail units for residents.

Lichfields, the planning consultant on the scheme, said the development could support 230 jobs throughout its 18-month construction phase, which is due to begin in 2018 if plans are approved by Salford City Council.

Nathan Matta, associate director at Lichfields’ Manchester office, described the project’s location as “an underused brownfield site located in a highly sustainable urban area”.

“The proposals fit in with the goal of transforming the Ordsall Riverside Corridor, and this gateway location means the development can become a landmark building on the Salford side of the River Irwell,” he said.

Located on Derwent Street in Ordsall, the scheme is in close proximity another of Forshaw’s proposed developments: a £41m project on Worrall Street.

Forshaw submitted plans for the Worrall Street project earlier this month, which will see the construction of three residential blocks ranging between six and eight storeys in height over two separate sites, with one block alongside the river and the two blocks opposite fronting Worrall Street and Dyer Street.

The Worrall Street proposals, also designed by DLA, will provide 252 apartments.

Both developments sit within a growing cluster of private rented and other housing developments along the River Irwell, including Fortis Development’s Bridgewater Point, a 220-home project worth £30.5m being built by contractor Beaumont Morgan.

Other schemes under way nearby include McGoff & Byrne’s £75m Downtown scheme, a 365-home apartment complex due to complete over two phases between February 2019 and December 2020.
