Seven Salford projects have been shortlisted for top regional property awards.
The projects, all of which have been backed by Salford City Council, have been shortlisted in four of the 15 categories of the Insider North West Property Awards. Three of the categories have two Salford nominations each.
City Mayor Paul Dennett said it was a remarkable achievement and showed the strength of the city’s investment market and future potential.
“From the newly opened RHS Garden Bridgewater to the innovative Box on the Docks dining ‘sheds and greenhouses’, Salford is being recognised as one of the most dynamic places in the region when it comes to investment and regeneration,” he said.
“Whether we win or not, it is a remarkable achievement to have so many Salford schemes nominated for the top property awards in the region. It is a real tribute to the vision, drive and determination of everyone behind each of these projects.
“These are schemes which have already brought new life, jobs and opportunities to the city and will continue to do so. Salford is already a winner thanks to that.”
Salford City Council’s Chief Executive Tom Stannard said: “Having seven projects shortlisted in these prestigious awards is a great achievement for the city.
It showcases the fantastic work that is taking place and puts Salford firmly on the map once again with opportunities that local people can benefit from.”
The nominations are:
Architects Practice of the Year
Placemaking Project of the Year
Commercial Development of the Year
Property Deal of the Year
The awards night when the winners will be revealed has been rescheduled to Thursday 21 October.
