Ailsa House on Langworthy Road, Salford

A bold new vision for an ageing building on a key gateway into MediaCity has been unveiled.

Housing association Salix Homes has revealed the first artist’s impressions for a £300,000 facelift at Ailsa House on Langworthy Road, Salford.

The residential building, which houses 24 apartments, sits on a main route into MediaCity at Salford Quays and is in desperate need of modernisation.

Salix Homes, which owns 8,500 homes across central Salford, will work alongside Oldham-based building specialists Emanuel Whittaker to transform the apartment block as part of a wider £22 million investment in social housing across Salford over the next two years.

The improvement work is expected to get underway in November, subject to planning approval, and is due to be completed by next summer.

Following the transfer of 8,500 homes from Salford Council to Salix Homes earlier this year, the housing provider is carrying out much-needed improvements to 2,200 homes in Salford over the next two years.
