Our client The English Cities Fund established by leading regeneration and investment organisations Homes England, Legal & General and Muse Developments, have won a prestigious Civic Trust National Award for its Timekeepers Square scheme in Salford.
The new development scheme was selected as one of just 18 winners from a shortlist of 45 finalists from across the globe. The recent win marks the third award for the development after previously winning small housing development of the year at the 2018 Insider North West Property Awards, and an award for best multiple rental (Built) at the 2017 Manchester Society of Architects Awards.
The scheme was designed by Buttress Architects as a contemporary reinterpretation of the area’s existing Georgian houses, and consists of three blocks of 36 two, three and four-bedroom townhouses. Each of the terraces have been set out to re-establish the historic urban grain of the area, focusing on the architectural and urban focal point of the adjacent Grade II* listed St Phillips Church, while also serving to define a new communal courtyard at the heart of the development.
Timekeepers Square is the second of three residential developments in the area from the English Cities Fund alongside Vimto Gardens and Carpino Place, that form part of the wider Salford Central regeneration scheme. We are proud to have been on the project team for all three of the successful developments and congratulate all those involved on another deserving awards win.
