The last remaining undeveloped site overlooking Erie Basin in Salford Quays is set to be filled if a planning proposal is passed by Salford Council.
Glenbrook Property have submitted plans for the development of a sixteen storey scheme incorporating 270 apartments, residents gardens, ground floor amenity space and car parking .
The buildings, covering approximately 220,000sqft, has been designed by bSheppard Robson Architects and marks the fourth build to rent scheme that Glenbrook will deliver in the North West.
They have currently building a 232 apartment scheme in Castlefield.
The land would have to be purchased from Peel Holdings.
Director Ian Sherry, commented on the proposal:
“This deal further demonstrates our ability to source and deliver exciting projects in the built to rent sector. We are one of very few developers in the sector to have delivered private rented schemes from start to finish and should this planning application be successful, we will have achieved consent on over 1,000 apartments in the past three years. We have the same number again in different stages of acquisition and design and continue to look for opportunities across the UK and Ireland.” adding
“This site lends itself well to the rental market, being located immediately adjacent to MediaCityUK and in the heart of Salford Quays which, thanks to the strong strength of occupiers and the cultural, entertainment and leisure offer, has become an internationally recognised destination in its own right. Subject to receipt of planning, we intend to make an immediate start on site for completion in Summer 2019.”
