£42m homes and offices for Salford

SALFORD'S FUTURE:

Nikal regeneration PROPERTY developer Nikal has submitted a planning application for permission to create a £42m mixed-use scheme in Salford. Called Sillavan Way, it will include 405 apartments, 50,000 sq ft of office space and 5,000 sq ft of new shops.

The scheme will be one of the first new office developments on the Salford side of the Irwell since the government announced the creation of a new urban regeneration company, Central Salford, to lead the city's economic growth.

Jonathan Wrigley, development director at Nikal, said: "We acquired the site 12 months ago, originally as an industrial investment.

"However, we soon recognised the potential that this area of Salford had to offer and worked hard with the newly established Central Salford to produce a viable and exciting scheme."

Success

The developers hope to see rents of £15 a sq ft.

They will be aiming to emulate the success of the nearby Deva Centre, which created a new mix of offices on the site of a brewery.

"Through the Chapel Street regeneration and, more recently, the Central Salford urban regeneration company, Salford has shown a firm commitment to the renewal of this important corridor and is encouraging high-quality mixed-use developments such as Sillavan Way," said Wrigley.

Nikal is due to start on site by the end of the year and anticipates that the scheme will be complete by autumn 2008.

Trinity Court

More action for central Salford. If you take a look at the Salford planning applications for this week you will find the following:

Reference: 05/51270/FUL
Ward: Irwell Riverside
Location: 6-8 Trinity Court, St Stephen St, Salford
Proposal: Erection of 9 storey building comprising 50 apartments, 305 sq.m ground floor commercial unit and basement car parking.

Someone take a look at the file and then download the renders onto here if you get a chance. It's actually on the renders on the corner of Trinity Way and Chapel Street, next to a small apartment block just completed by Space. Opposite the nasty Bellway block.

Thanks to Sleepy for reminding me to post these with his CJC comments.

The full regeneration strategy for Cental Salford have now been published online(shows far more detail than the pamphlets and Salford Advirtiser posted earlier).

Here we have the executive summary, which is rich in pictures and maps
http://www.centralsalford.com/site/R...y-Designed.pdf

And the text only framework document
url=http://www.centralsalford.com/site/Resources/Final-Doc-17-08-05.pdf

The executive summary in particular is worth 20 minutes of your time.

The Approach Blackfriars

Here is the information the Blackfriars Approach scheme:



Situated only yards from Deansgate and now 24-hour city centre of Manchester. The approach at Blackfriars is a development of 54 apartments, underground secure parking and managed office space to the ground floor. Now under construction watch with anticipation as another development by Time & Tide springs out of the ground.

Nowhere near Dock 9 mate, the site described is west of the Trafford centre.

I can see a popular water taxi service happening between the two quays of salford and trafford, it'll be great to give the ship canal a real river-like feel to it! Bring it on!!

For info - when looking at these planning notices you'll see a line that says:
Decision Level: followed by either the word DEL or COMM simply meaning the decision to approve or reject is 'Delegated' (to the planning officer) or 'Committee' meaning the decision will be taken by the Planning Committee. The key difference being if anything is delegated, it's because it's a tiddler and therefore not likely to be of much interest to most people on this forum although I accept in this case there is a novelty angle to it.
Keep up the forensic work though! Cheers

To be fair, the article 10 consultation may indeed be deemed a minor matter by Salford City Council but the actual planning application sits within Trafford's boundaries and as such might be deemed a bit more important by Trafford Borough Council and indeed our lovely forumers. As it is, I personally think this is a pretty interesting development myself.

I don't think jrb would post any old planning notice! Not one for a kitchen extension in Davyhulme or owt like that. lol

The water taxi basin app. is a good find. I can forsee a water bus service one day between new landing stages near the cathedral, Spinningfields, Pomona, Exchange Quay, this Trafford landing stage and the Lowry. Wouldn't that be cool?
