Anaconda is the next phase of OMI’s re-generation of the Greengate area of Salford, close to Manchester City Centre. The scheme provides 350 apartments for the PRS market along with 3 levels of a basement providing 88 parking spaces.
Resident’s facilities (Foyer/ Gym and Lounge) are positioned at the lower levels providing animation to the street frontage and a new attractive public realm walkway within the site will connect the historic street of Greengate with the River Irwell. High-level communal roof terraces will provide outdoor space for residents with exceptional views out over Manchester City Centre.
The scheme consists of a single 44-storey point block located at the bridgehead position, marking the entry into Salford as you cross the River Irwell from Manchester City Centre. The building is clad in seamless glazed curtain walling with gold coloured reflective metal cladding panels set behind and is intended to ‘shimmer’ as the sun moves around it.
A lower brick faced element provides continuity, addressing the street and knitting itself into the existing pattern of buildings along Greengate itself. The project is on site and is due to be complete in late 2018.
