Buttress’s designs for a new residential development for the English Cities Fund (ECf) have been unveiled.
Carpino Place, located on Oldfield Road off Chapel Street, comprises 22 three-storey high-specification townhouses. One of the homes will have four bedrooms, while the rest will have three.
Set around an internal courtyard, the homes will have access to features including rooftop terraces, private rear gardens, and patio areas. The historic cobbled Wroe Street and South Willliam Street will also be restored as part of the development to provide a shared surface that retains the historic street pattern and treatment.
The scheme has been designed to complement and enrich the existing grain, scale, and materiality of neighbouring buildings, while providing a modern reinterpretation of the Victorian townhouses found in the area.
The development is being delivered by ECf, a joint venture between Muse Developments, Legal & General and the Homes & Communities Agency, in conjunction with Salford City Council, and is the most recent stage in the ECf’s Salford Central regeneration plan.
Work on Carpino Place began in January and the homes are due to go on sale in spring 2017.
