The Rise and Rise of Ordsall

Working with Salford City Council, LPC Living has invested around £100m in regenerating the Ordsall area and transforming it into a desirable residential area.

Mancunians over a certain age will recall that Ordsall went into serious decline in the 1980s, as a result of the closure of Salford’s dockyards and the subsequent loss of 3,000 local jobs. It was listed as one of the most deprived areas in the UK and was in dire need of investment. This is where LPC Living came in.

Since building work began in 2007, Ordsall has been reborn something of a property hotspot – desirable among young professionals and growing families alike, and featuring all the green spaces and amenities you would expect to find in any friendly village community.

How Has the Area Changed?

Ordsall is located on the doorstep of Salford Quays and Media City, right on the cusp of Manchester city centre, so it has always had the potential to be the residential hub it is now.

The regeneration efforts of LPC Living have created new homes for more than 1,000 residents, varying from modern three-bed townhouses to luxurious apartments.

Radclyffe Park

This £50m development constitutes the bulk of the Ordsall regeneration project, featuring a mixture of 79 townhouses and apartments, as well as a high street, 290 parking spaces, an NHS Health Centre and a Travelodge hotel.

Radclyffe Mews

The 31 family homes and three luxury apartments of Radclyffe Mews overlook the stunning Ordsall Hall – a stately Grade I listed building that dates back to the 1200s – so you could say that this is where Ordsall’s history and future come together and complement one another.

Cambridge Place

A smaller development of 22 homes, Cambridge Place was completed in 2013. As a mixture of both townhouses and open-plan apartments, it caters for a range of requirements and attracts many different residents.

Hulton Square

Hulton Square is the latest effort in the Ordsall regeneration – a development of 16 three-bedroom townhouses and 83 apartments that range between one, two and three bedrooms.
