The first images of Grainger’s Salford Build to Rent scheme – The Filaments – have been revealed. The £80m scheme forms part of the Chapel Street regeneration masterplan – and is the newest Build to Rent addition to the North West.
The Filaments development has 376 homes – a mix of 365 apartments and 11 townhouses across three blocks – Neon House, Halogen House and Lamp House. Amenities include a bespoke gym, residents lounge, a co-working zone and a host of others totalling over 6,500 sq ft of shared social space for residents.
There are also six high-quality ground floor commercial units at the Filaments, ranging from 400 sq. ft. to nearly 3,000 sq ft. Units will be suitable for a range of uses – including retail, restaurants, a cafe, and a fitness space, and benefit from flexible planning consent.
At the end of 2020, Grainger announced two hires as it geared up for the launch of The Filaments. With 86 homes now leased, leasing at The Filaments is currently performing well and ahead of schedule.
“We’re excited to unveil The Filaments which will provide high-quality rental opportunities for North West residents, with strong amenity and community placed at its heart.”
“All apartments contained within Halogen and Lamp House will boast private outdoor space, and Neon House will be pet friendly. The scheme will come equipped with super-fast Wi-Fi and an on-site Resident Services team who will organise residents’ events to encourage community building.
“The interiors for the scheme have been designed by LOFT, curated to promote a sense of wellbeing whilst drawing inspiration from local heritage and architecture.
“The Filaments is set to lead the way in high-quality Build to Rent homes in Salford and support the city as it continues to grow, thrive and generate investment.”Helen Gordon, Chief Executive, Grainger plc
The Filaments adds to Grainger’s existing Build to Rent portfolio in the region, which includes the £100m, 510-unit Clippers Quay scheme at Salford Quays – one of the UK’s largest rental developments outside of London.
