Salix Homes has unveiled artist’s impressions for a £300k makeover at Alisa House, which is located on Langworthy Road, a gateway into the 200-acre MediaCityUK development in Salford.

Emanuel Whittaker have been appointed to transform the 24-apartment block as part of a £22m Salford investment strategy over the course of the next two years.

Emanuel Whittaker’s contracts director, John Gallagher, said: “We are really excited to be helping to give Ailsa House a much-needed makeover.

“Not only will the residents be able to appreciate their new and improved homes, but externally everyone can enjoy the new look of this landmark building.“

The work on the building’s exterior will include new doors and windows, with the old balconies being replaced with balconies made of glass.

Salix Homes’ head of investment, Mark Foster, commented: “Ailsa House was built in the 1960s and is in desperate need of modernisation, so this development marks a major milestone in our £22m investment programme to homes and communities across the city, which will greatly improve the quality of life of our tenants.

“The apartment block sits on a key route into MediaCity, so we are very proud to be able to deliver these essential improvements which will complement the wider regeneration in Salford.“

If planning consent is granted, the project is expected to start in November and be complete by Summer 2016.
