The Crescent is a high quality new residential development along The Crescent road in central Salford. 5plus achieved planning for the scheme in 2016 with work starting on site in late 2017. The 399-unit development includes 2 towers of 22 and 16 storeys. These help mark a gateway between Salford and Manchester whilst maximising views out for residents.
The scheme provides a complimentary private sale offer for this part of the city. All units are of the highest quality and are complemented by extensive amenity space to promote activity and help foster a sustainable community. A public landscaped courtyard at ground level and private landscaped roof terraces on the 1st and 5th floors are incorporated. Additional amenities include a main reception with concierge, a state of the art gym and cinema room, a swimming pool and solarium spa and a launderette/lounge.
Materiality focuses on the predominantly used red brick whilst a pre-cast concrete frame reflects the vernacular stone detailing of civic buildings nearby. Promoting permeability and activity, town houses and commercial spaces have been incorporated at ground floor level. Terraces reinforce the street scene and reflect the significant Grade II listed Crescent terraces adjacent.
