A billion-pound investment could pave the way for 5,000 new jobs in the region.
Development giants Peel Land & Property have today revealed plans for ‘Trafford Waters’ – a new development on the banks of the Manchester Ship Canal comprising residential homes and businesses.
James Whittaker, Development Director at Peel Land & Property, said: “We have been working on the vision and masterplan for Trafford Waters for over 15 years. It will be an exemplar, sustainable development that will create a space for a new community to live, work and play.”
Located near the itu Trafford Centre and Trafford Leisure Village – and benefiting from local transport connections (including the Trafford Park Metrolink extension) – Trafford Waters will offer 875,000 square feet of business space.
“I am delighted that we are able to present plans which, if approved, will help address housing needs in the area and provide new business and employment opportunities – all while regenerating and enhancing a prominent, but underused site in a fantastic waterfront location. I am confident that Trafford Waters will be an asset to the entire region.”
To find out more about the plans – and to speak to the developers – there is the opportunity to attend a two-day exhibition at Venus, 1 Old Park Lane, Trafford Quays, Manchester M41 7HA on Thursday, 19 March from 3pm to 7pm and on Saturday, 21 March from 11am to 3pm.
