Manchester will soon see a new public realm

The design for a promenade and public realm area in front of Imperial War Museum North by London-based FoRM Associates has been granted full planning permission on behalf of Peel Media.

The 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.

FoRM Associates' design will provide a stepped area built over the current canal embankment, providing a walkway and seating area leading down to the water's edge. The newly created space will extend the existing Trafford canal promenade to the new foot bridge by Wilkinson Eyre Architects currently being built as part of Media City UK to link the Salford and Trafford sides of The Quays. The IWMN pedestrian promenade will be completed in spring 2010 in time for the first residents moving into Media City UK.
