Work has completed on the award-winning residential development, Timekeepers Square, with all the homes now fully occupied.
Developed by the English Cities fund (ECf) – a joint venture between Muse Developments, Legal & General and the Homes & Communities Agency – in conjunction with Salford City Council, Timekeepers Square is the second of the ECf’s residential developments in the Chapel Street area.
The development comprises six terraces of 36 two, three and four bed townhouses adjacent to the Grade II* listed neo-classiscal St Phillips church and the Georgian square which it fronts. All houses have dedicated private parking, and the three and four bed houses have private roof terraces in addition to rear gardens.
The townhouses have been designed as a contemporary re-interpretation of the area’s existing Georgian houses, responding to them in height and massing with a strong vertical emphasis and rhythm applied to the fenestration and door patterns.
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 St Phillip’s Church, whilst also serving to define a new communal courtyard at the heart of the development.
Construction on the homes began in November 2015. They were launched to the market in February 2016, with all sold by August the same year.
