New-look Salford towers unveiled with latest artist's impressions

New 3D drawings showing what three aging tower blocks in Salford will look like following a multi-million pound facelift have been released.

The artist’s impressions reveal how the Pendleton regeneration area’s Mulberry, Magnolia and Sycamore Court will appear after the £7m transformation.

Salford-based Housing association Salix Homes is working with contractor Seddon to revamp the buildings. Work commenced on Magnolia Court in April, and the project is scheduled for completion in Spring 2017.

Salix Homes’ head of investment, Mark Foster, said: “We have worked very closely with the local community and our partners to develop a design and colour scheme that will transform these aging tower blocks into modern, stylish homes that will vastly improve the quality of housing in the area and stand proud on the skyline for generations to come.

“We are confident that our final designs will complement the wider regeneration projects currently underway in Pendleton and help create a vibrant and desirable community where people are proud to live and work.”

As part of the improvement project, 281 properties in the three high-rise buildings will be upgraded with new bathrooms, bedrooms, kitchens, doors and windows.

The tower blocks will be transformed externally, with each set to be completely rendered, cladded and painted in grey and green.

Duncan Williams, Seddon’s regional director of housing, commented: “We look forward to working with Salix Homes to revitalise these three tower blocks as the housing provider continues its £22m investment programme.

“The new-look towers will completely transform the homes of residents living in the blocks, with refreshed exteriors and pops of colour brightening the area.”
