We seek to
deliver exceptional residential projects

Our approach aims to combine the key constituents that we
think makes for great place to live and thrive: design; connectivity; space; amenity; community.

The proof is
in the building

Our proven track record is clear to see in three key cities across the UK: Manchester, Leeds and Birmingham.

We believe developments such as Arch View House Wembley, No 1 Old Trafford and Eda, Erie Dock Apartments, epitomise the excellence we strive for.

Our approach

  • Residents’ needs lie at the heart of our projects.
  • We aim to design adaptable, well-proportioned spaces.
  • We focus on incorporating useable and useful amenities with intelligently designed environments, which help foster vibrant communities where people enjoy living.
  • In essence, we believe in realising the most ambitious plans we can, underpinned by long-term, sustainable thinking.

Right place,
right time

Cole Waterhouse has a preference for finding development opportunities in emerging areas of regeneration, where good connectivity and local potential offer the foundations for rewarding and enjoyable living.

Distinctive &
sustainable design

  • We insist on high quality architecture, design and materials which stand the test of time.
  • We challenge our architects to think about how our buildings will look in 100 years’ time.
  • Sustainability increasingly informs every aspect of the design and delivery of our developments.

“Design is modern, fresh and really beautiful. Transport has been amazingly convenient. Tram stop right outside and the building itself has been so quiet that I haven't had any issues with any antisocial behaviour. How easily bookable the cinema room is and also the dining facilities.”
Danielle – Tenant at Eda
“EDA Building life on the up. The building design is nothing short of brilliant. Innovative modern look, feels very fancy but also homelike with the addition of pet friendly spaces and snug working zones. Loads of free zones to do work which are decorated to the nines and make you feel good to be in there.”
Sam – Tenant at Eda
“The quality and facilities of Eda are incredible for the price. The flats, the facilities and the staff could not be praised higher. Nicole on the front desk in particular has gone the extra mile to help us settle in, fix problems and feel at home in a new building.”
