DPP’s Manchester office has secured planning permission, on behalf of English Cities Fund, for an 11 storey building as part of the ongoing regeneration scheme in the New Bailey area of Salford Central.
The new Grade A, BREEAM ‘Excellent’ development, will provide around 24,000 sqm of B1 office floor space and 830 sqm of commercial ground floor space. The building, designed by architects Allford Hall Monaghan Morris, is set to complement the recently completed One New Bailey development, which houses London law firm Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer and restaurant Menagerie.
In addition, DPP has also achieved planning permission in Salford for the English Cities Fund for four new apartment buildings with up to 843 new units, a 33 storey tower, multi-storey car park and space on the ground floor for commercial units. These changes are part of a broader planning exercise to update the Salford Central Masterplan for Zones A/C. The development, created by architect AHR, borders both the St. Johns and Middlewood Locks developments.
“We are delighted to have achieved planning permission for both of these projects for English Cities Fund,” says John Francis, Director at DPP’s Manchester office. “It’s an exciting time to be involved in the regeneration of Salford and these changes reflect the current market trends and the changing cityscape of the area”.
DPP has been planning advisers to English Cities Fund, which is a partnership of Muse, Legal & General and HCA, on the Salford Central project for 10 years.
