Manchester Waters, Greater Manchester

Delivering and unlocking opportunities to bring much-needed new housing to the area has been our big focus at Manchester Waters in 2023. As one of the last remaining large-scale development sites close to the City Centre, Manchester Waters is proving to be one of the most desirable neighbourhoods in the city.

Plans submitted to bring brand new homes to Manchester Waters

This year we submitted plans to create 159 new homes at Manchester Waters. Located between The Bridgewater Canal and The Manchester Ship Canal, the proposed one-, two- and three- bedroom apartments will be split across two buildings, overlooking both historic canals, and will uniquely offer every future resident a home with a waterfront view.

As part of our proposals, we will be making a contribution equivalent to 20% affordable housing within Trafford and a further contribution will be made towards improving green spaces in the local area.

Reflection from James

“This is the next exciting step in our regeneration plans for Manchester Waters, offering a unique residential opportunity at one of the best development sites in Greater Manchester.

“Waterside living in the UK comes with many benefits that enhance quality of life and wellness. Our proposed homes will celebrate their waterfront location as well as delivering much needed new, sustainable, quality housing in the area in addition to providing the next section of new improved pedestrian and cycle links between Manchester and MediaCity.

“Alongside creating new homes, the proposals represent a significant investment into the local area, which will create new jobs, apprenticeships and local employment opportunities throughout the construction stage.”

Peel Waters Proposed New Residential Offering
Third tower of iconic X1 Manchester Waters development opens.

We recently joined X1 Developments, Vermont and other key partners for a special ceremony to celebrate the third tower of the iconic X1 Manchester Waters apartment development officially opening.

Reflection from James

“X1 is a key delivery partner for Peel Waters. The completion of the third tower is a huge milestone for Manchester Waters and the transformation of the former dockland. Manchester Waters and its proximity to both Manchester City Centre and MediaCity also means it is well placed to attract further investment to boost the local economy and bring more jobs.”
