Salford regeneration proposed by Glenn Howells and Urban Initiatives

  • Comment

First look: the largest ever planning application for Salford has been submitted

The new application is the biggest ever document submitted for Salford and proposes to link existing a number of distinct areas such as Salford University and The Crescent, Chapel Street and Spinningfields, the region’s business district. 

Drawn up by Glenn Howells Architects and Urban Initiatives, the plans aim to restore existing historic buildings, renovate existing surroundings and create new areas such as a modern commercial district. The development ‘will take advantage of Salford’s prime strategic position’ next to Manchester city entre.

The 177,440m2 scheme, which will create 864 homes, 390 hotel rooms and 197,000 sq m of offices, moves on initial masterplan proposals which had originally been drawn up by Massimiliano Fuksas

Phil Mayall of English Cities Fund, said: ‘This mixed-use scheme will encourage the development of a sustainable community, capturing benefits for both the neighbouring and wider Salford areas. It is an important first step on the road to regenerating what was formerly the civic heart of Salford.

Chris Farrow, Chief Executive of Central Salford Urban Regeneration Company, said: ‘The vision for Central Salford is to regenerate this important area of the city, to help diversify its economic base and to bring in new activity.’

There will be a public viewing of the plans at Salford Central/St Philips Church from 10-12 August.
