Dock 5 for ForViva provides urban living across an eight storey, three block, mixed use building. In addition to the three blocks, there are nine townhouses located on Ordsall Lane. The development forms part of a wider masterplan for the area.
Residents can enjoy an on-site cinema, gym, and communal workspaces. The scheme comprises of 394 apartments including studio, 1,2, 3, 4 bed and 6 duplex apartments with car and cycle spaces on the lower ground floor.
Juliette balconies have been used to further the sense of verticality in the design but also to celebrate the corners where the lounge areas are situated. The projected window surrounds enhance corners of the building blocks.
Dock 5 responds to its context, maximising an active frontage, providing an exciting, varied streetscape and makes a positive contribution to the River Irwell.
Our design was developed from an original prepared by Purcell.
