There's a public meeting for local residents in the Friars Primary School on Blackfriars Rd on Thursday 9th Feb, opens at 4.30, presentation at 6.30pm. More details should be made public then.

I'll be there.

It's about to go in for planning permission and as part of pre-application consultation they are going to invite local residents to a presentation and Q&A session on 9th February.

Famous architect.

Landmark structure.

Unique design.

New direction.

Anyone interested?
It's a supermarket designed by Ian Simpson.

In Salford not Manchester though. Canny developer, fuelled by those reports coming from MCC on the viablility of new city centre foodstores, preempting the Central Retail Park/First Street plans? Maybe far enough round the ring road to avoid overlap.

Let's see what the plans are anyway. Unique design, landmark structure...high expectations.

There are a lot of people living within 5-10 min walk in Blackfriars/Trinity, soon to be lots more in Greengate and lots more already in the Green Quarter. This location would be more convenient for them than Central Retail park and in addition would be likely to drag in quite a bit of passing trade, being right on Trinity Way.

Not sure what people will think of the designs but certainly not the standard big white shed we might have expected.

Interesting, it was on the list in MCC's report,
Quote:
2.8 The following sites were considered within the assessment on the basis of the scale of site required for a development of this nature and known owner / developer interest:

· Central Retail Park;
· First Street;
· Manchester Fort Shopping Park;
· Regent Road, Salford;
· Boddingtons;
· BBC Oxford Road;
· Piccadilly Trading Estate;
· Crowngate, Chester Road; and
· Springfield Lane, Salford.

3.10 Springfield Road [sic] is considered to offer limited scope to deliver a cluster of amenity provision or to result in further businesses development. A food store development on the site is unlikely to be a catalyst for wider investment.

http://www.manchester.gov.uk/egov_do...FoodRetail.pdf
Sure these plans must have been known about when they shortlisted & excluded Boddingtons.

I was at a meeting with the developer and Urban Splash, he does have one very interested but I don't know if they are able to be public about it, waiting till they tell us on Thursday. Interestingly, the different retailers apparently have their own standard floor-plans, which impose slightly different proportions on the overall layout. The one in the latest drawings and indicative plans is based on the standard requirements of the "most interested" party, but if they dropped out and another operator came along it would be likely to alter slightly to match the slightly different standard model of the new people.

My neighbour was hoping for Waitrose, but think it more likely to be someone with a proven track record in challenging inner-city regeneration-type locations.

Sounds like it's Manchester and Salford councils taking slightly different views on which site has most potential!

I would think the possibilites could be Asda, Tesco, Waitrose or Aldi, it really does depend on how big the actual floorplate of the store will be. We will just have to wait till Thursday.

Been a while since I posted on here, in fact:

You last visited: August 16th, 2005

Ha so erm a long time, back then I worked for Ian Simpson and since then I've had a 3 years spell at Urban Splash and now own my own design agency....

I also live on Evans Street right next to this site and have done for over 4 years and only today I've been alerted to these plans or rumours, nothing through my letterbox and I'm not only surprised but also horrified at the prospect of a retail park literally 40 metres away from my back gate.

Nice to see the public consultation is when I'm at work. Idiots.

We shall see, not that thrilled to see the main access road is behind my house... I've lived next to a supermarket before and it's not fun.

Thread rename?

I'm not quite understanding the render, location wise etc. Where is the picture taken from, what're the tower blocks in the background? And what about the wide river/road which runs behind the supermarket, is that Chapel St?

I'm presuming they're our blocks, Black, White and Greyfriars, New/Riverbank. Seems to be as if looking from Tempus Tower. Couldn't believe how tidy the riverside is between our block, down the anaconda stretch towards Trinity Way. Trees and bushes cut back and litter nowhere to be seen. Used to feel like a country walk into town before they trimmed everything back

Subtract - did you not get the leaflet we got the other day? Gobsmacked that you didn't with living immediately next to the land
