A 44-storey tower designed by OMI Architects has been given the green light by Salford City Council
The 130m-tall residential building, which will be the highest in Salford, forms part of the 349-home Exchange Court scheme put together for Renaker Build Group subsidiary AQ Investments.
The scheme next to the River Irwell sits within the wider Greengate quarter could begin on site this summer.
It will include 475m2 of communal facilities for residents, three levels of basement car parking and a landscaped terrace and roof garden.
Salford-based OMI Architects said in a statement: ’Exchange Court is, in many ways, a demonstration of our evolving approach to repairing cities and bringing new life to tired and unloved environments.
’The scale of Exchange Court has been an interesting challenge, particularly as we are working in a very sensitive historic quarter of the city.
’The OMI studio, in the converted Manchester Baths, is just round the corner from Exchange Court and it is especially gratifying to be able to influence our city, and in particular the immediate surroundings we experience on a daily basis.’
