It's a sell-out for Salford's Timekeepers Square

All 36 properties at Timekeepers Square, a Georgian-style development located behind Salford’s Chapel Street, have been bought off-plan – just seven months since its launch.

The first of the townhouses were launched in February, with seven properties being sold in the opening weekend, while the rest were sold following a phased launch approach. The scheme comprises two- three- and four-bedroom properties, with features including rooftop terraces, gardens and allocated parking.

Named due to its proximity to a number of clock faces, including those at Grade II-listed St Philip’s Church, Timekeepers Square will deliver luxury, stylish properties that are in keeping with the conservation area off Chapel Street.

The scheme, which is being developed by English Cities fund (ECf) in conjunction with Salford City Council, is located behind St Philip’s Church and across the road from Vimto Gardens. It follows on from Vimto Gardens’ launch in 2014, which saw all 97 homes sold and completed within 12 months. ECf is a joint venture between Muse Developments, Legal & General and the Homes & Communities Agency.

Hollie Reynolds, residential sales and marketing manager for the North at English Cities fund (ECf), said: “The outstanding sales rate of Timekeepers Square really is a testament to the quality of the homes it presents. It’s a stunning scheme that perfectly complements the surrounding architecture, and it’s not often you find three- and four-bed houses so close to the city centre.

“Now that it’s sold out, we can’t wait to witness the project come to life and see the proud new homeowners move in in the next few months!”

Winner of best un-built project in the Manchester Society of Architects Awards 2015, Timekeepers Square is the most recent stage in the Salford Central regeneration scheme, with a further phase of townhouses in the Chapel Street area planned for launch later in the year. The scheme aims to breathe new life into the Chapel Street and New Bailey areas of the city.

When the work is finished, Salford Central – which is made up of two interdependent but distinct areas, Chapel Street and New Bailey – will create around 11,000 new jobs, 220,000 sq m of commercial space, 849 new homes and 390 hotel rooms.
