Repurposing an existing development

Salford's iconic Soapworks is set to undergo a remarkable transformation, with a £200 million mixed-use expansion project. Soapworks aims to breathe new life into the 8.5-acre site, turning it from a gated commercial area into a welcoming, sustainable, and vibrant mixed-use community. Chapman Taylor’s design considers how the new works will complement the existing uses on the site and expand the amenities and facilities for the occupants, residents, and wider community.

A new mixed use community

The masterplan aims to deliver three new residential buildings to deliver 450 new contemporary homes, a range of modern workspace typologies including the refurbishment of a currently vacant building on the site, a new multi-level transportation hub accommodating car and cycle parking and the project aims to enhance connectivity to the wider Salford community with the addition of new safe pedestrian and cycle routes, all to the highest sustainable and environmental targets.
