New luxury apartment building completed in Salford

An event to mark the topping out of Cortland at Colliers Yard in Greengate, Salford, was held on Wednesday 20th July by leading Manchester property developer Renaker and real estate investment, development and management company Cortland.

Cortland at Colliers Yard will offer 559 one, two and three bedroom rental apartments when it opens its doors to residents in Autumn 2023. The glass-clad tower will offer more than 25,000 square feet of high-quality amenity space which has been designed by renowned interior design firm Lister & Lister. It also boasts a three-storey brick podium which will include shops, restaurants and bars. The project will also deliver new public realm which will be open to both residents and the neighbourhood.

Forming part of the wider Greengate regeneration, Cortland at Colliers Yard is in a sought-after location just minutes’ away from Harvey Nichols, Selfridges and Manchester’s central retail district.

The topping out ceremony marked an exciting step in both the wider Greengate masterplan and Salford City Council’s cultural ambition to deliver an aspirational neighbourhood to both Salford and Manchester City Centre.

Representatives from the council, including Salford City Mayor Paul Dennett, and Greater Manchester Combined Authority, including CEO Eamonn Boylan, were joined by the Renaker and Cortland teams to mark the achievement.

Daren Whitaker, MD at Renaker, said: “To have reached this key stage of the project on schedule despite the difficulties of the recent pandemic is a fantastic achievement and testament to the huge efforts of the whole team. This landmark project is another key step in our wider regeneration plans. We aim to deliver not only high-quality new homes with access to first class amenities for our residents, but to also create a thriving new city centre destination and a neighbourhood that the city can enjoy through the creation of a new public boulevard, local leisure amenity and the creation of Greengate Park.”

Progress to date has delivered over half a million working hours and more than 29,000 m³ of concrete placed through the 51-storey tower.

Financial support in the form of a development loan of a combined £64m from the Greater Manchester Combined Authority and the Greater Manchester Pension Fund has helped Renaker deliver this landmark development, providing significant employment and training opportunities for local people.

Colliers Yard will comprise three carefully curated towers ranging from 43-51 storeys high, each housing a mix of apartments and penthouses, as well as extensive public realm for the local community including a new public park, a tree-lined boulevard and a new public square which will re-frame local landmark and Grade II listed building Collier Street Baths.
