A New City Gateway

Manchester Waters includes the regeneration of a former 26 acre dockland site, located between the successful Manchester residential neighbourhood of Castlefield and Peel’s prestigious Salford Quays development; MediaCityUK.

Manchester Waters is one the last remaining large scale regeneration opportunities located close to the heart of the City Centre, benefiting from extensive waterfront views abutting the world renowned Manchester Ship Canal. The site has a formal masterplan approved and adopted by both Trafford and Manchester City Councils and includes the potential to develop over 2,500 new residential homes.

The regeneration plans for Manchester Waters and the adjoining Cornbrook Hub are based on creating a new destination, which includes city-living style, residential apartments up to 20 storeys in height, offering multi-tenure development opportunities for young professionals and families. Manchester Waters’ unique location offers opportunities for private market rent and open market sale developments.
