The first images have been revealed of the £80m scheme at The Filaments, the North West’s newest build-to-rent scheme which forms part of the Chapel Street regeneration masterplan.
The Salford development comprises 376 homes, including a mixture of 365 apartments and 11 townhouses across three blocks – Neon House, Halogen House and Lamp House.
The Filaments adds to Grainger’s existing build-to-rent portfolio in the region, which includes the £100m, 510-unit Clippers Quay scheme at Salford Quays, one of the UK’s largest rental developments outside of London.
Residents of The Filaments will also have access to a co-working zone, bespoke gym, residents lounge and a host of other amenities, which together total over 6,500 sq. ft. of shared social space for residents.
Leasing at The Filaments is currently performing well and ahead of schedule, with 86 homes now leased.
In addition to new homes, The Filaments includes six high-quality ground floor commercial units ranging from 400 sq. ft. to nearly 3,000 sq. ft. in size. The units benefit from flexible planning consent and will suit a range of uses including retail, restaurants, a cafe, and a fitness space.
Helen Gordon, chief executive at Grainger plc, commented “We’re excited to unveil The Filaments which will provide high-quality rental opportunities for North West residents, with strong amenity and community placed at its heart.”
All apartments contained within Halogen and Lamp House will boast private outdoor space, and Neon House will be pet friendly. The scheme will come equipped with super-fast Wi-Fi and an on-site Resident Services team who will organise residents’ events to encourage community building.
The interiors for the scheme have been designed by LOFT, curated to promote a sense of wellbeing whilst drawing inspiration from local heritage and architecture.
Helen Gordon added: “The Filaments is set to lead the way I high-quality BTR homes in Salford and support the city as it continues to grow, thrive and generate investment.”
