Cole Waterhouse is a UK based developer and asset manager, created by three groups of individuals who saw the potential synergy in bringing together their respective specialisms and experience in real estate, development, law and finance.

From the outset Cole Waterhouse wanted to respect the heritage of the No.1 Old Trafford site and create an environment that was both attractive to live in and architecturally impressive to look at. Cole Waterhouse instructed their architects to design a bold and brave building that helped define the future direction of this part of the City. Using quality materials including heritage brick, they wanted to ensure that there was an impressive public realm outside the building, significantly improving the living and working environment for those using the area.


No.1 Old Trafford will enjoy expansive views of Manchester and access to extensive transport links throughout the City and beyond.

 Connecting with regular trains to London (in just over 2 hours) and Birmingham (less than 90 minutes) from Manchester Piccadilly and Liverpool (33 minutes) from Manchester Victoria. The arrival of HS2 by 2033 will connect Manchester and London in little over an hour. A key attraction of the site is the proximity it has to the new Wharfside tram stop. This new 5.5km tramline will provide fast, regular and reliable access to Manchester’s City Centre, the Northern Quarter, Spinningfields and Deansgate shopping sectors as well as the University, entertainment and nightlife districts.

Nearby Salford Quays, MediaCityUK, Trafford Centre, The Lowry Centre and Manchester United Football Club are also readily accessible and represent key locations for both professional and personal interest placing this development at the heart of the dynamic city of Manchester.
