Work begins on site at Greengate

14 Jan 2011, 16:04

Carillion has started the first phase of public realm improvements at Greengate in Salford, including footbridge, water fountains and sculptures.

Designed by Leeds-based architects Whitelaw Turkington and engineers Arup, the work is due for completion by April 2012.

At a later stage, Ask Developments plans a major mixed-use development on the 32-acre site near Manchester Cathedral.

The public realm element is being delivered by Salford City Council supported by Central Salford urban regeneration company, North West Development Agency and European Regional Development Fund.

Mark Hughes, chief executive of the North West Development Agency, said: "Today marks the start of another significant development for Salford, which complements the redevelopment work taking place in nearby Chapel Street and Media City UK."

A few designs knocking about the web for the house 4 life competition, none too inspiring, due a shortlist from RIBA?

Some sort of unitary modular concrete construction? Check!
Roadways in the sky? Check!
Cars kept away in dark recesses of the estate? Check!
A wonderful crime free social housing experiment that will be a fabtastic place to live in 20 years or obsolete already? hmmmm.

While I would love to embrace this sort of living and building style, I have just some reservations when making other people live in it....

In the superficial world of skyscrapercity, things can be dismissed so quickly.

For me, the House 4 Life competition is one of the most interesting and potentially one of the most important developments in the city.

Interesting when I was looking from the bridge opposite you could see into the old Air raid shelters, I hadn't noticed before. Not sure what they will do about the old entrances, that I guess will be under the new bridge supports.

Sort of the funniest thing I have read on here Monkey and probably the most sensible.

"pre credit crunch poison chic shite."

Excellant.

Personally Greengate, alongside Strangeways, Chapel Street and Mayfield will be the areas that the cities need to seriously consider in the next decade.

They are the missing pieces of making Manchester/Salford a big city as opposed to just a city.

It probably has considerable heritage status aside from its present rather vital modern day use.

And erm my eyes sees claret or maroon not pink. But my eyes go all funny when i see field grey. So each to their own.

You would be surprised at how much difference there is between monitors - even the three I have on various computers show distinct colour variations. That's why I use a calibrated monitor for serious photographic work.
