SALFORD City Council have given the go-ahead to £50m plans for 273 new homes set amongst the city's planned Ordsall Riverside transformation.
Approval for the 273 new homes continues a boom in Salford's resi construction industry
The two new schemes - located just off Ordsall Lane and running along the Ship Canal - have been put forward by Fortis Developments and Beaumont Morgan and include 260 new apartments and 13 townhouses.
The largest of the two schemes, Bridgewater Point - comprising 207 one, two and three apartments, the townhouses, an on-site residents’ gym and landscaped communal garden areas - will be constructed on a derelict 1.4-acre site between Dyer Street and Everard Street and cost in the region of £33m.
Knight Knox are marketing the properties, with apartments starting from £114,995.
The second scheme - comprising 53 apartments built across eight-storeys - will be built just off Ordsall Lane on Woden Street at a site called The Gateway.
Approval for the 273 new homes continues a boom in Salford's resi construction industry which has seen plans for 2000 new homes at the £730m Middlewood Locks, 1000 apartments at the £200m X1 Media City, 580 flats at the £75m Adelphi Wharf scheme and 1000 new apartments at Dandara's Chapel Street site all receive the green light in the last year alone.
