Since it was conceived as a vision in 2006, DPP has supported and shaped the delivery of Salford Central, which at £650m is one of the UK’s largest regeneration schemes. With 14 buildings now complete, and a further 8 under-construction, Director, John Francis and Associate Director, Richard Purser in DPP’s Manchester office, continue to deliver their planning support, for the English Cities Fund.
Two permissions were secured in 2018; one a 19,444 sqm office building for HMRC at New Bailey business district, designed by Make Architects which is now under construction, and the second a 178-unit residential scheme on Chapel Street providing a mix of apartments, townhouses and retail units designed by Buttress Architects.
Both developments will add significantly to the urban fabric, as further pieces in the masterplan that will eventually deliver 32 buildings across 8 development zones.
Another recent completion in 2018 is the new multi-storey car park at Slate Yard designed by AHR Architects that has quickly become a landmark on Trinity Way with its striking design.
2019 is expected to see further residential developments come forward off Chapel Street and at Slate Wharf, with further commercial development options pursued at New Bailey. DPP looks forward to continuing its support to the Fund, Salford City Council and its partners.
