Funds have been secured for the construction of a new 23-storey residential building in Salford next to the River Irwell.

Works can now start on the residential building which consists of 196 flats on the bank of the River Irwell on land off Stanley Street.

The project is situated on the ‘C2 plot’ between the Novella residential building, which completed in 2022, and The Slate Yard residential building.

C2 will feature a mix of one, two and three-bedroom apartments, none of which have been designated as ‘affordable’.

The new building will also feature 3,800 sq ft of internal amenity space, this includes a gym, co-living and working space and a 1,850 sq ft roof terrace on the top floor.

The funds have been secured by a funding deal with CBRE Investment Management to bring through the 11th phase of homes within the Salford Central masterplan.

The building is part of a £1bn scheme to transform the Salford Central area, this scheme is being delivered in partnership with Salford City Council and the regeneration company, English Cities Fund.

The C2 project will be delivered by Morgan Sindall Construction, which also built Novella and The Slate Yard.

Simon Arnott, Morgan Sindall’s managing director for the North, said: “We’re very happy to once again be on site at Salford Central with the ECF delivering the latest stage of its landmark plan for Salford.

“Over the years we’ve developed a collaborative and supportive relationship with the team at ECF and our local supply-chain, which has been instrumental in helping this project get to site efficiently.”
