Planning permission for the scheme, on the former Bauer Millet garage site off Albion Street, is already in place for a 40-storey residential tower and a 14-storey office building of 240,000 sq ft of space.

The £300m project involves working around the existing tram line and Grade II listed arches and is expected to take three years to deliver.

Designed by Simpson Haugh, the project will transform the neighbouring railway arches and create an active frontage along Great Bridgewater Street with new bars, restaurants and shops.

Work is expected to start on site this spring with Salboy’s partner construction firm Domis, carrying out the build.

Simon Ismail, co-founder and director of Salboy said: “Viadux will benefit from our extensive construction expertise and residential development experience and will be the latest in a line of high-quality schemes we are delivering in the city region.

“Working with a partner of the calibre of Ask over the coming years will help create one of the most exciting mixed-use projects right in the heart of the city centre.”
