Altrincham-based Amstone Developments has submitted planning for 614 flats in a five-block development at Clippers Quay in Salford.


Amstone purchased the former multiplex cinema site from Ask Developments in the summer and plans to start work early next summer.


The development includes the construction of a footbridge that will land at the Wharfside tram stop. The new tram line will be a direct link to Trafford Park and the Trafford Centre.


Martin Halsey, operations director at Amstone Developments, said: “In this new economic cycle Amstone is focusing towards residential development and we aim to become the front-runner in PRS development in the North West.


“We are well funded as a group with access to significant private equity funds. Our Clippers Quay scheme provides us with the launch pad to roll out our PRS urban village concept in other North West locations in the future.”


Deloitte is advising on planning and the architect on the project is Leach Rhodes Walker.
