Proposals for Salford’s first ever co-living apartments have been scrapped amid spacial concerns.

Plans for the seven and 10-storey blocks, set for the corner of Eccles New Road and South Langworthy Road, were rejected by Salford City Council, after plans failed to “provide future occupants with a decent home or healthy living environment”.

Headed by Beech Holdings, plans for the project saw 238 ‘co-living units’ share amenities such as kitchens and workspaces in the building, as well as outdoor space, gyms and accessible roof terraces.

Original plans for the development described co-living as “a vital role in forging real-life communities, building relationships, and being part of a thriving community”.

Beech also has co-living apartments in Westpoint in Trafford and City Co-living in Newcastle.

Plans are currently in the works for two large schemes Progressive Living’s Gorton Street and Cert Property’s 30-storeey scheme on Clippers Quay.
