The new development which will be
named Fortis Quay will be a landmark project in the heart of Salford Quays and
will include 756 apartments over four phases.
The scheme will see the conversion
of two former office blocks and the construction of three further new build
blocks including a 27 storey apartment block - which will be the tallest
building in Salford Quays. The two existing office buildings already have
consent for residential use, with Custom House to be extended from six storeys
to 10 storeys and Furness House to be extended from 11 storeys to 17 storeys.
176,530 Square Feet, Fortis Quays will include a
gymnasium for its residents, a pedestrian garden avenue, onsite concierge,
car-parking facilities and a neighborhood square.
