a vibrant new neighbourhood in a truly unique location.

Located between the Manchester Ship Canal and Bridgewater Canal, Manchester Waters is surrounded by water and its regeneration will create a vibrant new neighbourhood in a truly unique location.

The Stats

10 acres of public spaces

The vision for Manchester Waters will deliver over 10 acres of public spaces including new waterside parkland, a promenade along the Manchester Ship Canal and a new active travel route along the Bridgewater Canal.  These public spaces will be complemented by high quality architecture, providing around 4,000 new homes alongside places for people to work, visit and relax.

With two onsite Metrolink tram stops, Manchester Waters is just minutes away from Manchester City Centre and the cultural hub of MediaCity.
