FairBriar International, a joint venture between Scarborough Group International, Hualing Group and Metro, has submitted a detailed planning application for phase two of its Middlewood Locks development in Salford, UK.
The 24-acre development will be located at the western gateway to Manchester's Central Business District and has been designed by the WCEC Group.
Plans for the second phase of the project — to be built by Beijing Construction & Engineering Group — will include the construction of 546 new homes in four separate buildings.
The development’s first phase includes the construction of around 571 homes and associated commercial space. Enabling works for this phase of the project have started in April 2016.
Overall, the Middlewood Locks development will involve the construction of around 2,215 new homes and over 69,700sq m of commercial development space, including offices, hotel, shops, restaurants, a convenience store and a gym. The £700M development is anticipated to create more than 7,000 jobs in the region.
Scarborough head of development Paul Kelly said: “This is another step in creating a reality of our vision for Middlewood Locks. This development is providing much needed homes and quality office space capable of attracting major organisations, all in an environment that recognises people come first.
“Work on site is progressing rapidly; you will be able to see buildings start to go up by later this year with people and businesses moving in as early as 2018.”
