As the plants arrive for its grandiose green wall, new CGI footage showcases what you can expect from the Salford office block when it completes in May.

Eden sits on the corner of Irwell Street and Stanley Street and represents £36m of investment from developer English Cities Fund, a joint venture between Homes England, Legal & General, and Muse Developments.

Designed by Make Architects, the 115,000 sq ft Eden is set to be one of the most sustainable buildings in the North West. ECF is aiming for a target BREEAM rating of Outstanding and a NABERS certificate of 5.5 for the building. Accordingly, Eden will be able to run completely on renewable electricity.

While Eden has strong green credentials, it is also set to be very green – literally. A 43,000 sq ft living wall façade will earn the office the record for Europe’s largest living wall, according to the developer. Flora fans can expect to see 350,000 plants on the wall, as well as insect hotels and bird nesting boxes.

Among the plants arriving are strawberries. Credit: via RMSPlants have begun arriving on site at Eden. Credit: via RMS
