The £50m-plus building project, previously known as Trinity 2 and now renamed Obsidian, will deliver 250 flats and around 1,000 sq ft of ground floor commercial space at the Trinity Way and Willam Street site.
Designed by architect Studio Power the scheme also includes a resident’s gym, cinema room, private meeting space, and a co-working area.
Planners also gave the green light to plans to build 100 Passivhaus homes at Peru Street in Salford.
The project is being brought forward by The English Cities Fund’ as part of the wider 252-acre, £2.5bn Crescent Salford masterplan.
Peru Street will be the second development of sustainable and affordable apartments that ECF is bringing forward, following the success of Greenhaus – another pioneering Passivhaus-certified development that’s due to complete in March 2024.
