In January 2020 EKPS submitted an application for the erection of a new apartment scheme involving land at 55 Queen Street in Salford.
The scheme includes 115 apartments on a 0.22 acre site and is made up of three connected blocks.
The scheme, designed by Jon Matthews Architects, is adjacent to a site known as The Copper Works, which has planning permission for commercial units and a 14-storey residential block comprising 104 apartments.
A key part for the brief for Queen Street was that it must “provide a point of difference against the common residential stock, complement the character and setting of the site while supporting the emerging Greengate Regeneration Strategy”, as set out in the designs by Jon Matthews Architects.
Kelly Paddick, managing director at Euan Kellie Property Solutions, planning consultant for the scheme, said: “The application will see this site brought forward for a distinctive development that will provide a ‘bookend’ to the urban block, while also making an important contribution to the ongoing regeneration of the Greengate area.”
EKPS were responsible for co-ordinating the application submission and for providing planning advice throughout the project.
