Green light for Salford’s Anchorage Gateway scheme

Anchorage Gateway, Salford Quays

Salford’s planning committee has approved Cole Waterhouse’s Anchorage Gateway scheme which will deliver 290 apartments for Salford Quays

Designed by Chapman Taylor architects, the Anchorage Gateway building comprises 29 storeys, across ground, mezzanine and 27 levels of residential accommodation which will offer one, two and three-bedroom homes.

The 250,640 sq ft, L-shaped residential scheme will re-develop brownfield land on the corner of The Quay and Anchorage Quay which has lain vacant for several years.

At ground level, the building will offer 4,000 sq ft of commercial space and extensive areas of public realm and landscaping as well as cycle storage facilities.

On the mezzanine, and at level 19, there will be two landscaped terrace gardens for residents and rooftop penthouse apartments that have extensive private terraces.

The scheme sits at a primary gateway into Salford Quays in a location which offers residents the best of both Manchester and Salford with direct access to the Anchorage Metrolink station which is just 30m away from the site.

The ongoing regeneration

Damian Flood, CEO of Cole Waterhouse said: “We are committed to building quality homes for the people of Salford and have been working closely with the Council throughout the determination period to refine our plans and ensure that the building and landscaping meet the changing needs of the local market and future occupiers.

“We undertook a number of revisions to the design to reduce the amount of commercial space in favour of delivering as much outside amenity space as possible and the city-wide views from the rooftop sun terrace will be hard to beat.”

“We look forward to appointing a contractor as soon as possible and starting the building programme which will not only deliver much-needed, high-quality homes but will also create new jobs and training opportunities for local people.

“We are proud that Anchorage Gateway will be a key scheme in the ongoing regeneration of Salford.”

Following the appointment of a main contractor later this year work will start on site early in 2021.
