No finer place for sure, Down­town

Salford Advertiser - - TALKING POLITICS -

PE­TULA Clark sang it just across the road at The Lowry last year.

Now a de­vel­oper is to build ‘Down­town’ in Ord­sall, Sal­ford.

The tower block bear­ing the name of the clas­sic ever­green pop song, which was a world­wide hit in 1964, will be 15 storeys with 383 flats.

Al­trin­cham-based Vil­la­font Homes are be­hind the ‘Man­hat­tanin­spired’ multi-mil­lion pound scheme which has been sub­mit­ted to Sal­ford coun­cil for plan­ning ap­proval. It would be built on a 1.7 acre site on Wo­den Street next to the River Ir­well and be the de­vel­oper’s first Pri­vate Rented Sec­tor scheme.

Vil­la­font have sub­mit­ted plans for one, two and three-bed­room flats. There would also be an on-site gym, spa, and me­dia room.

They say that none of the apart­ments will be of­fered to buy-to-let in­vestors, in­stead of­fer­ing long-term rentals to first-time-buy­ers shut out of the hous­ing mar­ket.

If the plans are passed, con­struc­tion is ex­pected to start next year. The scheme in­cludes plans for a 24-hour concierge as well. as dry and cold stor­age rooms for po­ten­tial su­per­mar­ket de­liv­er­ies around the clock.
