Greengate Embankment, Salford /
This neglected site close to Victoria Station and the retail core of Manchester is in the historic centre of Salford. The brief specified a development promoting a range of high quality, mixed use, market led developments, creating a new identity and important gateway for Salford.
Phase I of the development comprises a mix of retail and car park uses at street level within the existing podium, with an office building above. The first residential building on the opposite side of Greengate will complete the symbolic gateway and firmly establish the credentials of the location. Bars, restaurants and other retail uses front the public space overlooking Greengate, and create a new active meeting point for Manchester and Salford.
