Leach Rhodes Walker Architects-designed 600 home scheme to start this summer

Altrincham-based Amstone Developments has gained planning for more than 600 homes at a former cinema in Salford Quays.

Local practice Leach Rhodes Walker Architects is behind the planned private rented sector scheme, which will also include 1,500sq m of commercial space.

The scheme at Clippers Quay will deliver 614 homes spread across five blocks.

Salford city council gave the scheme planning earlier this month and the developer is hoping work can start on site by early summer.
