The Canon Green Campus development on Canon Green Drive in Trinity has been given the green light.
Canon Green Court, a 1960s tower block will be modernised inside and out while neighbouring Westminster House will get an external facelift.
As part of the development, a new 11-storey apartment block will also be built within the grounds of the site, with 108 one- and two-bedroom affordable apartments.
Salix Homes chief executive Lee Sugden said: “We are delighted that Salford Council has given the green light for our Canon Green Campus development – this is a proud moment for Salix Homes. At the time of a national housing crisis, this project will not only refurbish and modernise the homes of the existing residents, but it will also deliver desperately-needed new and affordable housing in Salford.”
Salix Homes, which owns more than 8,000 homes across Salford, will now appoint a contractor to carry out the project and it hopes that work will start on site before the end of the year.
