Housebuilders Beaumont Morgan Ltd have won approval for a new housing scheme on derelict industrial land off Ordsall Lane in Salford.
Bridgewater Point, which will be managed by Fortis Developments, lodged plans with Salford City Council in May for 207 apartments and 13 townhouses.
Two L-shaped blocks six and eight storeys high will be built on the site, 59,000sq ft of overgrown and vacant space between Dyer Street, Everard Street and Worrall Lane.
It’s boom time for developers in Salford, and housing developers are targeting parcels of unused land on Ordsall Lane as new business starts to move back to the area.
The apartments – 86 one-bed, 90 two-bed and 13 three-bed flats, along with 13 townhouses – are now being offered for sale off-plan by buy to let developers Knight Knox.
They’re being offered for sale on a 250-year leasehold, with Fortis Developments retaining full ownership.
Knight Knox have a hand in most of the major residential schemes being touted to the council in the past 18 months.
They announced earlier this month that the first phase of the £75m Adelphi Wharf, a new build scheme of 206 flats, also with Fortis, over at the River Irwell off Chapel Street, had sold out nearly two years before completion.
The development also contains plans for a gym and 2,000 sq ft retail unit on the ground floor fronting Everard Street.
The application site sits next door to the Lamba Court and Steele House apartment developments on the banks of the Manchester Ship Canal.
