Explore Your Neighbourhood

The buzz of two great cities. The cool calmness of the canals. A place to live, work, meet friends. New Maker Yards is all this and more, part of a brilliant new big-city neighbourhood with a character of its own.

Built around three historic canal basins and bounded by the River Irwell – famously the border between Manchester and Salford – New Maker Yards is changing the face of both cities.

We’ve got more than 275 new homes here at New Maker Yards, so there’s plenty to choose from. There are dozens of different sizes and layouts, all designed by award-winning architects Hassell, plus three collections of hand-picked furniture – meaning every home has a slightly different feel to it.

But we’ve kept some things the same: built-in leading brand appliances, floor to ceiling windows and loads of light in every single home.

To celebrate our launch we are offering 1-month rent-free when you move in before 30 November 2019. No catches and no strings attached.

Green space to relax in, canals to amble along. That’s New Maker Yards.

You’ll find quiet courtyards, adventure playgrounds for the kids, well-maintained cycle paths and great places to walk the dog – did we mention pets are welcome here? For a more serious workout, there’s a fully equipped gym a few minutes walk away while the towpaths make for a great running circuit.

It’s all there for you to find your perfect balance.
