Looks great. So 'Castle Irwell' will be no more?

Oon the Planning document, it suggests Castle Irwell will be replaced by this (and other?) buildings.
I remember reading that the University wanted to consolidate its student population closer to Chapel Street/The Crescent.

It looks like work was starting today on converting the retail units at Piccadilly Point, the student block opposite Platform 13/14, into more student room. With the car park on Buxton Street now fenced off and cabins arriving this morning.

The planning application went in last year.

Quote:
Piccadilly Point 23 Berry Street Manchester M1 2AD

Change of use of first and part ground floor from Use Classes A1 (Shop), A2 (Financial & Professional Services), A3 (Restaurant/Cafe), A4 (Drinking Establishment), A5 (Take-Away), B1 (Offices), B8 (Storage & Distribution), D1 (Non-residential Institutions) and D2 (Assembly & Leisure)) to 58 rooms of additional student accomodation and changes to glazing at ground and first floor level.

Is it still the redlight area around there? Wouldn't fancy having a ground floor flat in that case!

Student scheme approved on appeal

21 Jun 2012, 10:16



Isle of Man-based Bumblebee Developments has secured planning consent on appeal for a new student accommodation development on Chapel Street in Salford.

The plans were originally turned down in September 2011 on grounds that there was no need for student accommodation in Salford. Since then a planning inspector has ruled that there is a demonstrable need for purpose-built student accommodation.

Indigo Planning in Manchester advised the developer on the appeal. Bumblebee Developments was also advised by O'Connell East Architects, Lambert Smith Hampton, and Guest Garsden.

Doug Hann, director of Indigo Planning, said: "This is one of the first regeneration projects to come forward on the Chapel Street corridor and will bring £4m of private investment to the area as well as new jobs.

"The plans respect the adjacent Grade 2*-listed St Philips Church, while creating a high quality addition to the Chapel Street street scene in its own right.

"This development, alongside the recent grant of compulsory purchase for large swathes of land along Chapel Street, will be an important piece in the regeneration jigsaw and help make the area a thriving part of Salford again."

The scheme will provide 4,200 sq ft of new retail space at ground level with 93 student beds on upper storeys comprised of four- and five-bed apartments on a site close to the city centre and its universities.

It'd be great to see a concerted effort by SCC and Salford University to replace Castle Irwell and the like with new halls fronting Chapel Street. It'd be a fairly uncomplicated regeneration of the area, but I'm not sure studentification is the 'vision' for Chapel Street.

No thought whatsoever has been put into that. It sits horribly with the building behind it. I'm all for development on Chapel St and a nice blend of modern and historic buildings, but this.. No.

PS; in agreement with kids. Studuenty stuff livens up a place. I have a feeling Chapel St will become a lot like the Caledonian Rd, or something

How does it sit horribly with the building behind it? I think it's absolutely fine.

At least make some attempt to apply a finish that will match the fine stone of St. Philip's Church. Is it that hard? Really?

Most other buildings nearby, including the historic buildings, are brick. It fits in perfectly well and is appreciative of the scale of St. Philip's. I see no issue with it at all.

Fair enough actually Kids. I was thinking it was adjacent to the Cathedral but I'm a couple hundred metres out. It's just another empty plot on Chapel St at present.

Brick/cladding colour. Hopefully weathering will make that darker. Could maybe be a little taller? To add more density etc

A wasted dream, but I'd hoped that all of St Philip's Church would be opened up, ........ whilst I'm at it with a flower garden afront.

...........But that'll never happen so I guess the best we can hope for is basic cohesion and buildings standing where there are now derelict and vacant plots. Let's just hope the streetscape and pedestrian interaction elements strong.
