Arca's Salford proposals win planning approval

  • Comment
Arca has finally won the green light for its high-rise Canopus Greengate proposals in Salford – after spending almost three-and-a-half years at the drawing board.
The £180 million scheme features two towers – the highest, a 47-storey skyscraper, will be taller than Ian Simpson’s Beetham tower with a public observation deck on the top floor.

The Manchester-based practice made two previous attempts at securing planning permission for the mixed-use project in the heart of Feilden Clegg Bradley Studio’s (FCBS) The Exchange, Greengate masterplan. CABE has been critical of all three efforts, including an earlier version with a single 60-storey skyscraper.
