London-based developer Q Developments has got the planning thumbs up to build a 27-storey student rooms tower in Salford.
Architect Broadway Malyan has envisioned the Salford Steps project, set to provide approximately 540 student beds in the vicinity. The project’s location will be the former site of McDonald’s regional headquarters at Cross Lane, adjacent to the University of Salford and Salford Quays.
The recently approved plan represents a reduction from the initial 2021 submission, which proposed an 880-bed development spanning 40 floors. As part of the Section 106 agreement, Q Developments will allocate £1 million towards local initiatives to be determined by the city council.
