Timekeepers Square has picked up the residential award at this year's Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors North West Awards.
The residential award honour an outstanding residential development of either a single building or overall scheme, either new build or conservation.
Designed as a contemporary reinterpretation of the area’s existing Georgian houses, the development includes three blocks of 36 two, three and four-bedroom townhouses. Each of the terraces have been set out to re-establish the historic urban grain of the area, focusing on the architectural and urban focal point of the adjacent Grade II* listed St Phillips Church, while also serving to define a new communal courtyard at the heart of the development.
The scheme is the second residential development in the area from the English Cities Fund – a joint venture between Muse Developments, Legal & General and Homes England, and forms part of the wider Salford Central regeneration scheme, which is breathing new life into both the Chapel Street and New Bailey areas of the city.
Commenting on Timekeepers Square the RICS judges said: "Timekeepers Square is a fantastic example of housing-led regeneration, taking a design-led approach to complement the existing Georgian architecture and surrounding listed buildings.
"The striking design ensure that the scheme is not pastiche with the materials carefully selected to fit in with the surrounding area. The project has been a huge success commercially, which is particularly impressive given the formally challenging locating of the site."
