We have started our fourth project at New Bailey, in Salford for The English Cities Fund.
It will be New Bailey’s most sustainable development so far and the latest iconic office development at the scheme, which is part of the wider £1bn Salford Central masterplan.
The building – which will reach 10-storeys and provide 175,000 sq ft of prime, Grade A office space – has been pre-let to telecommunications giant BT and represents the largest single pre-let in the North West in the past 12 months.
Four New Bailey has been designed by architects Make, and will feature an exposed lattice frame – a nod to the bridges along the River Irwell where the scheme sits.
The building’s striking design is unlike any other in the city, adding to New Bailey’s eclectic mix of unique and exciting commercial developments.
BT’s team will benefit from exceptional communal facilities throughout the building that support colleague wellbeing, right up to the rooftop terrace where they will be able to enjoy panoramic views across the city.
Phil Mayall, Regional Director at The English Cities Fund, said: “Getting the spade in the ground on our latest development at New Bailey and keeping momentum on the wider scheme, despite the ongoing pandemic, is something we’re incredibly proud of.
“By working with trusted partners like Bowmer and Kirkland, we know they share our vision for the scheme and will continue to deliver Four New Bailey safely and in line with government guidelines.”
He added: “We look forward to seeing the site progress over the coming months which, once complete and occupied by BT, will bring hundreds of new jobs to the city and will play an important role in Salford’s long term recovery when we emerge from the other side of the pandemic.”
New Bailey is being delivered by The English Cities Fund – a joint venture between Muse Developments, Legal & General and Homes England.
