Proposals for a development consisting of 13 townhouses, 207 apartments, and an eight-story tower with 52 apartments and retail outlets were recently given the green light.
The development, worth £33m and located on the banks of the Manchester Ship Canal, was approved by Salford council’s planning committee.
The two projects will solidify Ordsall’s position as one of the most emerging residential areas in Salford.
Housebuilder Beaumont Morgan, in partnership with Fortis Developments, intend to transform a plot near Ordsall Lane in an area known as Bridgewater Point, mere minutes from the Manchester city centre.
Abandoned industrial land situated between Worrall Lane, Everard Street, and Dyer Street, will be completely overhauled to make way for two L-shaped blocks, each standing seven storeys tall.
There will be communal gardens constructed in between, with lawns, trees, sitting areas, and winding walkways.
Residents will be able to enjoy amenities such as on-site car parking, a terrace, a private gym, and storage facilities for bikes.
The apartments, which total 13 three-bedroom units, 90 two-bedrooms, and 86 one-bedrooms, have already been made available for sale off-plan by Knight Knox, buy-to-let developers. Established in 2004, Knight Knox has sold over 4000 properties in 50 countries.
Prices range from £104,995 for a studio apartment to £164,995 for three-bedroom townhouses.
Full ownership will be retained by Fortis Developments, with the individual units offered for sale on a 250-year leasehold. Since its establishment, Fortis has built up a portfolio that includes several student and residential developments throughout the UK.
Beaumont Morgan also created the plan for over 50 homes at the corner of Ordsall lane and Woden Street. Beaumont Morgan is family-owned, and operates throughout the UK from its offices in Yorkshire, Humberside, and Lancashire.
The proposed development site is presently overgrown and vacant. The understanding is that it was in residential use until around 1977.
