Property details

We are instructed to seek offers and expressions of interest in this former council office building on behalf of Salford City Council. The property presents a residential redevelopment opportunity (subject to planning), located in an established residential area, close to retail facilities, schools, railway station and local amenities.

The property comprises a single storey timber framed office building, with a net internal floor area of around 10,332 sq ft (960 sq m), standing on a roughly level site of approximately 1.97 acres (8,000 sq m).

Local and regional roads together with rail links are easily accessible. The M6 is within 10 minutes, the M60, M56 and M62 are within 15 minutes. Future infrastructure improvements are progressing associated with Peel Holdings’ Port Salford development on the Manchester Ship Canal.

The property is offered by way of a 250 year leasehold interest at a ground rent of £1 for sale by way of premium. The lease will include specific obligations including timescales for the delivery of the proposals to ensure that the redevelopment aspirations of the Council and its partners are upheld. Such obligations will be strictly managed with step-in/forfeiture provisions if not adhered to.
