Plans have been solidified for commercial development by Make Architects in New Bailey, Salford.
An article from Architects Journal said the office will span over 10,000 square meters of space, be 11-stories high, and have net-zero operational carbon, courtesy of the living walls that will surround it. The development is part of a billion-pound masterplan created by the English Cities Fund.
The office will run on renewable electricity and recycled steel will reinforce the building’s structure. The building’s wraparound living wall will be serving both a functional and aesthetic purpose. In addition to removing air pollutants, the living walls will also help control temperatures and improve the area’s biodiversity.
