The Residence | Greengate | 110/45m | 34/14 fl | U/C



Plans in for high-rise Greengate flats 6 Aug 2015, 09:58 Jessica Swettenham Silverlane Developments has submitted a planning application for a 310-apartment scheme in Greengate, Salford. The scheme, called Norton Court, was designed by Jeffrey Bell Architects. The development will replace a surface car park near to the River Irwell and Abito Building with two residential towers, of 34 and 14 storeys, and includes landscaping and basement parking. The proposed scheme will provide 300 apartments, through a mix of one, two and three bed units, totalling 275,000 sq ft. There will also be 5,000 sq ft of commercial space. Additionally the development will link into the riverside walkway along the River Irwell which runs to the north east of the site. Indigo Planning advised on the application. Greengate is identified as the historic centre of Salford and is made up of a mix of uses, including industrial, commercial, residential and retail. The site is part of a wider residential-led mixed use regeneration strategy led by Salford City Council promoting 1,826 homes in the area over the next 15 years. Jeffrey Bell, director of Jeffrey Bell Architects, said: “The Norton Court scheme is an identifiable landmark development providing 300 residential apartments within the Greengate Quarter. A development that epitomises Salford’s confidence and creates a distinctive identity for this part of the city.” The application is due to be determined by Salford City Council towards the end of October. Other members of the consultant team include Royal Haskoning, Croft Transport Solutions, TACE and WML Consulting. - See more at: http://www.placenorthwest.co.uk/news....R0fGEwCl.dpuf http://www.placenorthwest.co.uk/cms/...engate-CGI.jpg

I take it this is the one that was mentioned a few months ago, the one by the large billboard on Trinity way?

Looks nice and tidy, no daft cladding AND it's in Salford so will probably get approved in October.

I mean for Salford this actually looks bloody good at first appearances.
Very close to its 31 storey neighbour currently going up at Renaker's site across the way.
Mini cluster on the way.

Doesn't really do anything for me to be honest. The glass bit looks tacked on and from what little of the materials we can see in that image I'm not filled with confidence of their quality.

Overall it looks decent, but the side facing the river looks the most disappointing. Would have been better if the 'grid pattern' had been followed all the way around.

It might be best if we wait for more renders before giving a final verdict.

I like the look of this, a good clean looking style. So different to one greengate where i think the random cladding has really begun to create an ugly building

Purely because it helps blot out that shitty block with the marquees on the roof l insist it gets built. Seen worse proposals anyway, tbh.

Abito is the best building there and will be for a long time yet

That's what the bloody thing's called.lt's only been built 10 minutes and it's a weather-tainted mess already.

This will be, without doubt, the best looking building in Salford....

Also, I would be intrigued to know at what height One Greengate has been captured at there....

Since if it is when the lower aspect of 21 storeys has topped out, then this building looks three times that height and should be around 63 storeys, which it clearly isn't.

Is this render making it look a lot taller than it actually will be in reality?

Nice. And it sure is nice to see so many proposals and actuals on the go. A bit of a golden age, methinks.

& the bottom bit is a reflection off the typically plate-glass smooth Irwell.

Anyone fancy taking me on at skimming stones?
