Erie Basin, Salford Quays


A landmark residential development (for Peel Holdings and subsequently Millennium Estates) on the former Dock 9 in Salford Quays. The scheme is a major component in the regeneration of the waterfront in this area and was led throughout from the initial feasibility stage through to completion on site.

Two separate blocks comprising more than 200 apartments as well as 6,000ft² of retail space are positioned to maximise views in southerly direction along the dock. The blocks are predominantly enveloped with aluminium rainscreen cladding panels and the palette of materials was deliberately limited to enhance the simplicity of each of the individual components.

The scheme was designed and led by our Director Neil Brown, whilst at Broadway Malyan Architects.
