Salford’s Carpino Place wins at North West residential awards

The English Cities Fund is celebrating after its Carpino Place scheme in Salford won Best Small Development, at this year’s Insider North West Residential Property Awards.

Following a record number of entries, Carpino Place – a selection of three and four-bedroom townhouses, which sold entirely off plan, took home the gold after beating off stiff competition.

The fund was also shortlisted in the Bespoke and Urban Developer of the Year, Best Apartment Development for the second phase at The Slate Yard, along with the Public Private Partnership of the Year awards, thanks to its work in the heart of Salford at both New Bailey and Chapel Street.

Phil Mayall, regional director at The English Cities Fund was delighted with the news. He said: “The Insider North West Residential Property Awards are one of the best up and coming awards for the residential sector in the region, so we are of course very proud for Carpino Place to win Best Small Development.

“Our schemes across the North West have progressed considerably over the past 12 months and we look forward to contributing further to the success of the region in 2019.”

Andy Avery, director at Buttress Architects, added: “We are delighted that Carpino Place has been awarded this accolade, judged by our peers in the property industry. The scheme not only provides much needed, well-designed homes, but also complements and adds to the wider regeneration of the area.”

The English Cities Fund is a strategic joint venture between Homes England, Legal & General and national mixed-use development and urban regeneration specialists, Muse Developments.

Launched in 2016, the Insider North West Residential Property Awards celebrate the remarkable achievements of the region’s residential sector.
