We are an evolving city

TraffordCity is evolving and is entering a period of development on a breadth and scale not seen since The Trafford Centre was built over 20 years. Over the next three years TraffordCity will be boosted by approximately £350 million of investment with a total £2.6 billion over the next 20 years.

Future investment: Space to grow

TraffordCity has space to grow and thrive with 3.5 million sq ft delivered and 3.5 million sq ft to expand into.

In total, 4.8 million sq ft of commercial floorspace has been delivered with over 50% of this within the The Trafford Centre and its extended Barton Square Development which will include more retail stores.

Over the longer term, it is anticipated that a further 11 million sq ft of floorspace will be delivered totalling 15.8 million sq ft.

£350m of investment over the next three years

Take a look at the vision for TraffordCity

Our fly through takes you on a visual journey into the future of TraffordCity and City Gateway. From the the UK's first tri-modal inland waterway port at Port Salford and a new residential, retail and leisure community at Trafford Waters to the exciting proposed developments of Therme Manchester wellbeing resort and Modern Surf. Plus a new outdoor Fives soccer facility, a new multi storey car park at Barton Square and for the coffee lovers, a brand new Tim Hortons.

Watch the fly through now...

The creation of Therme Manchester will bring an accessible, yet world-class health and wellbeing attraction to the people of Greater Manchester and beyond. It will transform TraffordCity, bring fantastic employment opportunities as well as bolster the regional economy including tourism and be a key contributor to the Northern Powerhouse
