£100m, 600 unit acquisition accelerates PRS growth

1 February 2016

Grainger plc, the UK’s largest listed residential property owner and manager, today announces it has exchanged contracts to acquire Clippers Quay, a c.£98.7m* build to rent, PRS development scheme in Salford Quays, which will deliver over 600 new private rented homes, along with commercial and amenity space. This transaction follows on from Grainger’s Strategy Update on 28 January 2016, in which Grainger set out its ambition to become the UK’s leading private landlord and its plan to invest over £850m in the UK private rented sector (PRS) over the next 3-5 years.

Re the new bridge:
Quote:
A planned pedestrian footbridge, to be delivered by Salford City Council and Trafford Borough Council, will also directly link the site to the proposed Wharfside Metrolink stop, linking the site directly to the Trafford Centre. The line is aimed to be completed by 2019, and the footbridge is to be delivered before that time (timescales are to be confirmed and the footbridge does not form part of this planning application).

Good work nq!

Not as sexy as the previous proposal, but seems to be the in-vogue 'design' and certainly adds density, which itself gives the Quays a better and larger feel, from the renders at least. The design looks to give permeable public access and tidies up another large, underused plot

Second that.

Not as good as the original proposal, but looks a decent proposal. Much better than the usual rubbish the is put up around the Quays, with the blessing of SCC.

Manchester/Salford really booming ATM.

My only real complaint is it's back to front.

The main/focal building should be at the front of the of the proposal, at the entrance to the Quays(next to the bridge), and not behind the other buildings. It looks a bit messy.

Exactly this.

Looks decent.

Agree with what had been said above though. The 'fat' block should be on the waterfront.

Image posted by NQ the other day gives a slightly alternate view though I think it may be slightly older too given the coloured balconies

Ship Canal Company (letter from Peel Ports) objecting to the application, because of the inclusion of a possible future bridge, even though it clearly states it's not part of the application.
Quote:
The Manchester Ship Canal Company have received notification of the above planning application. As part of the application, a footbridge over the Manchester Ship Canal is proposed. The Ship Canal Company formally object to the above planning application, based on the ground that we have not received any details of the proposed footbridge or held any discussions with the applicant on this matter.


Also the renders have been updated, coloured balconies are back.

FFS. We've gone from a statuesque landmark building to boring grey lowrise that covers too much of the plot. This looks like Hulme, before they demolished it:

It just isn't good enough. This needs to be firmly rejected, and the applicants told to get a better f*cking architect. FFS.

I absolutely hate this proposal.

This and Chapel Wharf.

And I thought it couldn't get any worse in Salford.

Property developers taking the piss, and SCC happy to go along with it.

We don't know that - SCC haven't made a decision yet

Given their form for approving absolute shite all over the city, you can count on what the decision is going to be for sure.

It's worse than arse gravy. I'd rather have nothing than this tripe.
It's the gateway to MediaCity/Quays and deserves better. I don't even want something tall, just quality please.

It is next to 6 lanes of traffic, so not the most desirable place to live perhaps.

This isn't great but the original proposal was an abomination! The design of this proposal is fine, it's the quality of the materials that will badly let it down.

But Twizzer is right about the (un)desirability of the location. It isn't desirable enough to command higher property values. The only thing the location has going for it is that it's next to water. But it's also next to Ordsall. And a very busy road. And one of Europe's largest industrial estates.

A 2 bed apartment in this location cannot sell for more than £145k so what can we really expect here?

Whilst I liked the original proposal, it did remind me of something from a 1980's Spanish resort.

I like the view from the River with this proposal I just think the massive circular building is a mess. Lets just hope it doesn't get to Phase 3
