CERT seeks approval for its latest housing scheme

CGI of Velocity

Manchester-based CERT property is seeking planning approval for a housing scheme in Trafford which would create 102 properties.

Known as Velocity, CERT said the development reaffirms its confidence in one of the North West’s most exciting regeneration masterplans, Trafford’s Civic Quarter.

Following on from its Trafford Civic Quarter schemes, Kinetic and Insignia, CERT is now pressing forwards with its third residential development in the area following a successful consultation period.

The new-build residential development in Old Trafford will comprise 102 properties, featuring a mix of apartments and townhouses.

Working in partnership with OMI Architects, CERT proposed to redevelop an un-utilised car park off Talbot Road, as the construction site.

Howard Lord, CERT property’s managing director, said: “With a range of property types from one-bed apartments to three-bed townhouses, the scheme is designed to suit a wide demographic.

“Velocity will offer high quality apartments that meet the aspirations of those who have been priced out of the Manchester city centre market.”

He added: “The inclusion of extensive garden areas at both ground and rooftop level will enhance the living experience at Velocity and allow the community to meet and mingle in shared open green spaces.”

Enabl is the planning consultant for the project and Layer.studio is the landscape architect.

OMI, Enabl and Layer are also advising CERT on a 30-storey community living development at Clippers Quay in Salford.
