Trafford Waters is a major mixed‑use urban community situated on the banks of the Manchester Ship Canal in Trafford. The scheme will create an exemplary sustainable development, providing 3,000 new homes and 750,000 square feet of commercial space, including shops, offices, leisure and community facilities and substantial improvements to the public transport infrastructure.
Gillespies are delivering a high proportion of high‑quality and multi‑functional open spaces with green corridors and waterways throughout the site to ensure it is integrated, attractive and connected with its local neighbourhood. The scheme will also introduce new infrastructure that will include an extension to the Trafford Park Metrolink into Salford, new streets, boulevards, cycleways and footways, and a green‑blue infrastructure including new parks, squares, playgrounds, shared streets and attractive well‑maintained civic environments.
Once complete, Trafford Waters will be one of the largest regeneration projects in the city region.
