Domis set for Salford tower for upwardly-mobile

Manchester-based property developer CERT property has unveiled plans for a 30-floor residential tower on Salford’s Clippers Quay.

Its concept of a vertically zoned tower block, designed by OMI Architects, will offer a range of private living experiences from affordable to luxury.

Local Manchester builder Domis Construction has been lined up for the project, which will be submitted for planning once public consultation ends.

The lower brick-clad 9 floors will be set aside for co-living studios for people who want to try out the lifestyle available in the building with an affordable rental cost.

Above will be 15 floors of one and two-bedroom flats with high specification kitchens, bathrooms and all bills included.

In the top section of the building will be 15 luxury penthouse apartments with views Salford Quays and a top floor skybar.

In its consultation CERT said: “Successful urban areas such as Salford are seeing an influx of talented people from across the world.

“Cities have responded by delivering more city-centre residential accommodation, but these are often focused on the luxury areas of the market, meaning adults at the earlier stages of their career, or on lower incomes, may be forced to live in a less convenient and desirable location.

“Not with community living, our Clippers Quay development provides a variety of private living options for all.”
