5plus wins planning for BetFred-backed tower scheme

  • Comment

Manchester and London-based practice 5Plus has won planning permission for this residential scheme backed by bookmaker-turned-developer Fred Done in his home town of Salford

The £42million Trinity development for Done’s company FICM is earmarked for a 0.6hectare site at the junction of Trinity Way and Blackfriars Road, close to the River Irwell and the Manchester boundary.

Approved by Salford City Council, the project is being billed as the ‘first large PRS (private rented sector) scheme to be built in Greater Manchester’.

The project includes 380 homes, 889m2 of commercial space, and also incorporates a vacant grade II-listed pub - The Black Friar - which forms the entrance to the scheme.

The majority of Trinity’s new homes will be delivered as flats in the upper floors of the scheme’s two towers, which measure 17 and 13 storeys respectively. However, the development also includes seven townhouses with doors to street-level.

FICM director Simon Ismail said: ‘Gaining planning permission for Trinity is a very significant step to bring the vision for the development to reality.  Trinity is in the heart of the original Salford, it is where we are all from and we all feel a sense of responsibility to create something very special that we can be proud of.’
