5plus Wins 240-acre Masterplan for Salford University

Following an international competition we have been appointed jointly by the University of Salford and Salford City Council to create a development framework for the University’s estate and a future vision for the wider area.

The ambitious brief is to create one city district linking education with local industry, culture and residential to create an asset that enhances and connects with surrounding neighbourhoods and communities and helps drive the local economy.

Assets range from the listed Salford Museum and Art Gallery to the Stirling Prize winning Centenary House and the important green spaces of the restored Peel Park and The Meadows and spans 99ha (240 acres)

This is a key part of the City of Salford and one we know well and we are looking forward to working with the many stakeholders to maximise the vast potential that exists.

Jason Challender, Director of Estates and Facilities at the University, said:

“The masterplan will be ambitious and will transform both the campus and the surrounding area. We look forward to working with 5plus and seeing our vision come to life.”

Salford City Mayor Paul Dennett said:

“The University is an integral part of Salford’s future ambitions and development and investment is set to continue at a pace. We want to create a dynamic world class environment for people to study, live, work and play.”
