Chapman Taylor-designed Eda Build-to-Rent tower shortlisted for a UK Tall Building Award

Eda, a 331ft Build-to-Rent tower designed by Chapman Taylor in Salford Quays, Manchester, has earned a spot on the shortlist for a UK Tall Building Award in the Best Residential Tall Building Project category. The awards ceremony will follow the Tall Buildings Conference on Tuesday, June 25, 2024, at St Pauls in London, among other venues.

The Tall Buildings Awards aim to celebrate and honour innovative construction technologies that enhance and propel the design and construction of tall structures. By showcasing cutting-edge technologies, the awards underscore their potential to improve building safety, environmental practices, cost efficiencies, and delivery timescales, setting new standards for the industry.

Eda is a remarkable 29-storey residential tower offering 290 build-to-rent apartments in various configurations, including 1-bed, 2-bed, and 3-bed layouts. The tower boasts abundant amenity space designed to enrich residents' lives, with extensive ground floor and mezzanine levels serving as vibrant hubs for work, exercise, and social gatherings. These spaces are complemented by biodiverse green areas, adding a touch of nature to urban living.

Internally, Eda features many amenities, including co-working spaces, residents' lounges, a cinema room, bookable private dining and entertaining facilities, a fully equipped gym, and an on-site concierge and management team. The development includes 4,000 sqft of commercial space, already pre-let to Co-op Food, and shared residential landscaped terraces and rooftop penthouse apartments with expansive private terraces.

Collaborating closely with the client Cole Waterhouse, Chapman Taylor conceptualised Eda's vision, completed the concept design, and secured full planning approval in October 2020. Construction commenced in Summer 2021 and reached completion in September 2023.
