Development of Imperial War Museum North
The project by the London-based practice will provide a stepped area built over the current canal embankment, providing a walkway and seating area leading down to the water’s edge.
It will also extend the existing Trafford canal promenade to the new footbridge by Wilkinson Eyre Architects, which is currently being built as part of Media City UK to link the Salford and Trafford sides of the Quays.
The IWMN promenade is part of the Irwell City Park project, which is being co-ordinated by Central Salford urban regeneration company, in partnership with the three local authorities, Salford, Manchester and Trafford, and the North West Development Agency.
It will be completed in spring 2010 in time for the first residents moving into Media City UK.
