Our Proposals



Whether you’re looking for a vibrant, convenient and comfortable place to rent, or looking to put down roots and purchase a property, Cotton Quay has you covered.


Located in the heart of the beautiful Salford Quays, our plans offer a mix of living options to suit a range of needs, from 1-bedroom studios to 3-bedroom duplex apartments available to either rent or purchase. Located within a short walk of Salford Quays Metrolink station, which connects you to MediaCity, Central Manchester and beyond, Cotton Quay is an ideal location to call home.


Cotton Quay will be an entirely new neighbourhood, with community facilities, new gardens and green open spaces, bars, restaurants, shops and workspaces.



Cotton Quay will make the most of its waterside setting to deliver an inviting, vibrant and dynamic destination for the enjoyment of residents and visitors alike.


Our plans include a new south-facing waterside promenade. This predominantly pedestrian space could feature places to shop, eat and drink, as well as community facilities. From the promenade, pedestrians will be able to step onto floating gardens on St Peter basin, offering a mix of planting and habitats to promote biodiversity.


Further along the promenade, toward the tip of the pier, will be the public harbour baths. This will be an iconic open-air leisure facility that blends seamlessly with its Quays surroundings and makes the most of its wonderful setting.
