Forrest Appointed for major Salford development

Bolton-based contractor Forrest has been appointed to deliver a major development for developer X1, named X1 The Landmark.

Designed by DK Architects, the development will consist of apartments and townhouses as well as a gym, residents lounge, courtyard garden, concierge and secure parking.

The £31.2m scheme is the fourth contract Forrest has been awarded by X1. The business completed phase one of X1 Eastbank project last year, and is currently onsite at X1 The Plaza and X1 The Gateway.

Tim Waters, senior project manager at Forrest said: “Building on our successes on similar projects for X1, our appointment to this scheme further strengthens our presence in delivering high-quality city centre living. The scheme will act as the gateway leading into the Middlewood Locks development in Salford so it’s a key scheme for the improvement of the wider area”.

Melissa Green, regional operations director at X1 said “We are hugely excited to see this project starting on site, and to continue building on our strong relationship with Forrest. 

“This will be a fantastic development with a really interesting array of apartments and townhouses and the level of finish, such as the 2.4m high windows to all apartments, will lift the bar for quality in the area.

“Demand has been great, and we have already sold most of the apartments."

Apartments in X1 The Landmark were released for sale earlier this year by property consultancy Knight Knox.

Andy Phillips, commercial director at Knight Knox commented: “X1 The Landmark is a superb development in an enviable location close to Manchester city centre – it is no surprise that it has already proven to be so popular.”
