Erie Basin

Situated in the heart of Salford Quays, this striking twenty two storey, 210 -apartment, twin-linked tower building, marks the last remaining site to be developed at Erie Basin, on the former Dock 9 in Salford Quays.

The futuristic towers are enveloped with aluminium, rainscreen cladding panels, with the palette of materials deliberately limited to enhance the simplicity of each component. The dramatic addition to The Quays is not only transforming the skyline but building homes for the city and improving street-level infrastructure and transportation for its residents. The 160,000 sq ft development accommodates one, two and three bedroom apartments and includes a tenant lounge, gym and private elevated garden terrace. In addition, 6,000ft² of retail space has been integrated to maximise views in a southerly direction along the dock.

The scheme forms a major component in the regeneration of the waterfront. Erie Basin provides a number of high-quality apartments in Salford Quays and address the growing demand for residential accommodation in the area. Thanks to the draw of Media City UK, home to BBC, ITV, Coronation Street, The University of Salford and 80 commercial businesses, the site has become an internationally recognised destination in its own right. The development lends itself well to the rental market, with a wealth of entertainment and leisure opportunities on the doorstop and Manchester City Centre just 20 minutes away via the tram link.

Salford Quays in Greater Manchester, previously the site of Manchester Docks, became one of the first and largest urban regeneration projects in the UK after the closure of the dockyards in 1982. Following the success of the scheme, Salford Quays is now a multifaceted destination, home to some of the North West’s best cultural, sporting and leisure destinations, including Media City UK, The Lowry and the Imperial War Museum.

The scheme was led throughout, from initial feasibility stage through to completion on site by Vincent & Brown team members whilst at a previous practice.
