Maslow Capital Continues Successful Partnership with Repeat Borrower, Funds 160-Unit Residential Scheme in Salford with £26m Loan
LONDON, May 03, 2023 – Maslow Capital, a leading provider of development finance, has provided a £26 million loan to the Forshaw Land & Property Group, a well-established property developer with an impressive pipeline of residential developments in prime city centre locations in the Northwest. The loan will be used to fund a 160-unit residential scheme on Derwent Street, Salford known as Pavilion Wharf. This transaction marks the second facility Maslow Capital have provided Forshaw Land & Property Group, showcasing the strong and established relationship between the two companies.
The new development, situated on the riverfront of the River Irwell in the Salford area of Greater Manchester, is set to consist of a modern, 17-storey tower with 160 residential units. The tower will include a mix of 1, 2, and 3-bedroom apartments, offering luxurious living spaces for both investors and owner-occupiers. In response to the strong demand for high-quality new-build apartments in Salford, the units will feature a high-level specification, ensuring they meet and exceed the expectations of the local market.
In addition to the residential units, the development will provide residents with a range of premium amenities on the ground floor. These include a state-of-the-art gymnasium, a residents’ lounge, co-working spaces, concierge services, and a dedicated post room. Car parking will also be available within the scheme, with 14 spaces located in a gated car park.
The building has been designed to minimise direct energy consumption and CO2 emissions, reflecting the development’s commitment to environmental responsibility. As part of the project, a communal landscaped area will be created, featuring trees, plants, grassed areas, and integrated seating. Additionally, a new area of public realm will be delivered providing enhanced river access featuring south facing galleried steps to the river Irwell tow path. Residents will have access to a covered river facing terrace on the ground floor, providing stunning views and an impressive space for entertaining.
Domis Construction, an industry leader in construction and development with a proven track record, has been appointed as the main contractor responsible for delivering the scheme.
Today’s £26 million loan follows on from Maslow Capital’s previous partnership with Forshaw Land & Property Group, which saw the successful delivery of a 66-unit scheme in Manchester in 2019. Maslow Capital’s versatile loan solutions, extending from £10 million up to £300 million, continue to accommodate the requirements of entrepreneurial developers at every step of their growth path.
