Planning consent has been granted for three new major developments in Greengate.
This major planning consent for the Greengate is a key milestone in enabling the city to fulfil its vision for the creation of a new aspirational neighbourhood and city destination as set out in the Greengate Regeneration Strategy.
The plans deliver over 1500 new homes across three major new high rise developments creating a new tree-line boulevard for independent traders and retailers leading to a new public square linking Collier Street Baths and the Eagle Pub.
A new city public park is planned and this approval enables the first of these to be brought forward providing much needed green space to be enjoyed by all.
This initial phase comprises 559 new homes set within in a striking 50 storey tower with a wide range of apartment types and townhouses. Attractive and generous residents amenity including a swimming pool, gym and private dining area are planned together with significant ground floor commercial/retail provision.
Nick Berry, Director at OMI Architects, said: “The last few years has seen Greengate emerge as one of the key city centre neighbourhoods and the delivery of these three major schemes will cement its position, not only adding to the high quality residential offer in the city but also realising Salfords vision for a new and diverse neighbourhood which includes new opportunities for retail, leisure and culture in an area which has suffered from neglect for may years. We have been working with Salford City Council for over 15 years in Greengate and are excited about how this scheme will transform the core of the regeneration area, making Greengate a real ‘place’ in the city. “
