Aedas wins go-ahead for 'ManYoo' towers in Salford - images

  • Comment

Aedas has been given the initial thumbs up by Salford Council for this four-tower scheme close to the Lowry Building in Salford Quays, Greater Manchester.

 

The £105 million Harbour City Apartments development has been designed in collaboration with Philippe Starck’s YOO Developments and has already been wittily dubbed the ManYoo project.

 

 

 

Backed by Yorkshire-based developer K W Linfoot, the quartet of identical 26-storey towers will house at least 1,000 apartments, ranging from one- to three-bedroom pads.

 

 

 

There are also plans for nearly 5,400m2 of office space and 540 underground parking spaces.

 

 

 

The Aedas proposals replace an unbuilt four-tower scheme for the site by the Fairhurst Design Group for previous landowner Peel Holdings (AJ 13/10/2005).

 

 

 

Although the current designs have yet to be officially approved, it is hoped that the project will be complete by 2009.
