A property developer has submitted plans for a new 44-apartment project on a vacant site next to the Langworthy Metrolink stop.
Qualis Developments is looking to build a £7 million four-storey block that will feature a mix of one-and two-bedroom apartments.
The site where the project will be built is on the corner of Langworthy Road and Eccles New Road. Planning permission for a mixed three- and four-storey development was secured back in 2005, but the project never progressed.
Qualis Developments, which was previously behind a 131-apartment scheme in Sheffield, says it is looking to make the apartments an affordably priced alternative.
Andy Phillips, commercial director at Qualis Developments, said: “The development will serve as a reasonably priced alternative to similar properties in Manchester city centre and directly on the Quays, but with all the same amenities and high spec interiors you’d expect of modern, quality accommodation.”
A similar scheme in Sheffield, also piloted by Qualis Developments, secured planning permission earlier this year and already has seen construction start on the site. Around half of those 131 apartments are already sold.
Qualis Developments is based in Quay West in MediaCityUK and is looking to expand the company’s portfolio in Salford.
Designed by architect Coda, the scheme would feature 15 one-bed apartments and 29 two-beds.
A courtyard, communal garden and parking at the rear of the property would all be included in the development.
Knight Knox is acting as the agent for the project.
