Where industry, education and community come together to shape the future of Salford

Shaping the future

Crescent will continue the renaissance of Salford by building on its successes and bringing forward a new £2.5bn, 240-acre city district. The aim is to improve homes, lives and communities across Salford and beyond.

Salford rising

Through delivery of the Crescent masterplan we’ll create up to 7,000 full-time jobs, an innovation district to spearhead growth for the region, opportunities to drive prosperity through our actions to benefit the Salford community, biodiversity net gain, high-quality green spaces with 1000 new trees and two million sq ft of high-quality public space for everyone to enjoy.

Connecting people and places

Crescent will also create a transport hub, with safe, accessible routes throughout the wider Salford area. Sustainable travel is at the heart of every project and design decision.
