MediaCity:UK studios, offices, homes and hotel get planning permission

Last Week (7 February) Salford City Council approved plans for a ‘showpiece’ 24,000m2 studio block, 3,200m2 of offices, a 11,000m2 hotel, 168 homes, and as a 2,116-space multi-storey car park, reports the Architects Journal.

The announcement represents only the ‘first phase’ of the development, which is also set to include a dedicated educational building in partnership with Salford University, and cafes and restaurants based around 15,000 square metres of public piazza.

Work has already started on the site, with 10 cranes already up, and 4 stories of the BBC’s waterside building already constructed. You can see ongoing photos of the building site at this flickr group.
