Tweaked plans for Greengate to house the city’s tallest building in a 542 residential building have been given the green light along with a £ 36m scheme worth £ 165m in Ordsall’s Worrall Street.

Location Northwest reported last week that listed developer One Heritage had appointed contractor Midgard to continue construction of the 55-story skyscraper at Greengate and New Bridge Street.

One Heritage had originally secured consent for the £ 163 million development in January 2020, before the Covid pandemic got a new way of thinking.

The plans, which were before Salford City Council’s planning committee yesterday, outlined the intention to build two 14-storey towers – known as the shoulder building – and 55 storeys along with basement parking, new public space and 3,000 square meters of commercial space.

According to planning officers, the lower block is “mainly to address Greengate and a future piece of public space to be called Market Cross”. Roughly triangular, the taller tower should sit by the river Irwell.

The project team has OMI as architect and Euan Kellie Property Solutions as planning consultant. Gardiner and Theobald, Crookes Walker Consulting, DP Squared, SK Transport and GIA also advise on the scheme.

Designed by Tim Groom Architects, Primus’ development would create 165 homes on Worrall Street in Ordsall.

The site was previously earmarked for a 232-house scheme of Forshaw Land & Property plans approved in 2017, but was withdrawn the following year. Landowner Latitude then sold the site to Primus.

Primus scheme contains 153 apartments with one, two and three bedrooms and 11 terraced houses with two and three bedrooms.

On-site industrial buildings formerly occupied by J and JM Worrall’s Dye Works are to be demolished under the proposals.

The site, located close to the Manchester Ship Canal, is bounded on the south by Worrall Street and borders Dyer Street on the east. North of the site, the electricity producer Selectric Merchant’s Wharf is developing with 196 apartments.

Euan Kellie Property Solutions is also planning a consultant in the Primus project, where Layer.studio is employed as a landscape architect.

GIA, Renaissance, Hann Tucker, Wardell Armstrong, SCP and Tim Claxton Property are also instructed.
