Property developers in Salford are asking for the public’s opinions on a proposed 30-storey tower community living project at Clippers Quay.
The development has been designed with 402 apartments, as well as a sky bar located on the 30th floor providing views across the Quays and MediaCity, which developers CERT believes the public and tenants will benefit from.
CERT advertise the apartments as “diverse living spaces, each with their own front door” on their website, with offerings of 261 studios, 126 one and two-bedroom apartments, and 15 penthouse units; plus amenities that are available to everyone including a roof terrace and sustainable allotment, a variety of exercise areas and a café and restaurant, among other things.
On the developers’ website, the buildings designed is described as “a modern design with a historic influence”.
The first 11 stories will represent the dockside warehouses, with red bricks and grey balconies, while the upper tower is described as maintaining “a lighter feel with a reflective quality, acting as a beacon for the development”.
A resident did raise their concerns regarding the “quality of the build”, while two other residents of the area said the noise of construction was “part and parcel” of living in the city.
However, another resident said that the development would not help with traffic issues, especially on a matchday.
One final resident was supportive because of the lack of affordable housing in the city centre, especially as the Quays is an area with lots of workers.
