Arca Architects has unveiled its latest proposal for a mixed-use tower scheme in Salford - a key project within Feilden Clegg Bradley's masterplan for the Exchange Greengate area close to Manchester city centre. The proposed development is a redesign of an original 60-storey, singleskyscraper scheme which came in for criticism from CABE last year. Submitted for planning with Salford City Council last week, the project now features two smaller towers - the shorter a 31-storey building with a rooftop pool complex. The taller block, which at 46-storeys will be as high as Ian Simpson's Beetham Tower across the city, will boast Manchester's first public observation deck.

Enabling work has already started on the 405-at scheme which also includes plans for a 223-room five-star hotel.
