Cheltenham Place, Salford


Project Overview

X1 Cheltenham Place will provide 353 student studio apartments right in the heart of the action. With a range of on-site facilities and excellent transport links, this development offers the perfect solution for modern living.


  • Building on the success of X1’s existing project X1 The Campus, which sits just across the road, and which Zerum secured planning approval for in 2016, this new development will enjoy the huge demand from the existing tenant pool and attract a new group of residents.
  • The new scheme takes X1’s commitment to students a step further, creating incredible living spaces featuring stunning communal spaces and a roof garden for clearing the mind. The new development will provides all the amenities a student needs to make life easier at University. Residents will have access to laundry facilities, secure bike storage as well as being just five minutes walk from Salford Crescent station.  This will be the perfect place to live while studying at any of Greater Manchester’s prestigious universities.
  • The external works around the building will complement the architecture and improve the existing streetscene to Frederick Road and Cheltenham Street. To soften the built form, soft landscaped areas are proposed in the form of SuDS planting beds and street trees along the road frontages, raised planting beds within the courtyard and wildlife beneficial / native trees and shrubs along the railway line boundary.
  • The roof terrace will provide a communal amenity space with high quality paving, breakout spaces and seating. Raised planting beds will provide flowering, textured and scented plants. Biodiversity enhancement measures are an integral part of the landscape design with opportunities taken to provide species diversity and habitat for local wildlife. With stunning views of the city and a place to relax the roof terrace will be a sanctuary of tranquillity, above the bustle of the city down below.
