Another Salford tower: Jon Matthews wins go-ahead for latest Greengate high-rise

  • Comment

Emerging practice Jon Matthews Architects has won unanimous approval for an 18-storey tower scheme in Salford’s burgeoning Greengate quarter

The 115-flat, three block at 55 Queen Street has been drawn up for Manchester-based property developer and private equity company Salboy, which is owned and operated by Simon Ismail and Betfred-owner Fred Done.

The scheme will sit opposite the recently completed £65 million Local Blackfriars development, which was also designed by the practice for the same developer.

Among the other towers proposed for the booming high-rise quarter next to the River Irwell on the border with Manchester city centre are OMI’s 173m-tall, 545-apartment One Heritage Tower.

According to Jon Matthews, the 58m-tall Queen Street building ’would continue the regeneration of the area and provide distinctive, high-quality homes together with ground-floor shops and leisure uses’.
