High quality design

At Trent Basin, low-energy, contemporary, high-quality design comes as standard. In addition, every home comes with modern aluminium and wood windows from Velfac, sanitary ware from Roca’s Senso range and kitchens from Symphony.


Trent Basin is a place of calm. It’s a place of blue water and green space that’s close to the city without being in it, promoting healthy living and sustainability.

Reconnecting the city with the river, the development sits on the north bank of the Trent to the south east of the city. Right at the centre of this development is a historic inland dock – a reminder of the area’s importance when it came to distributing goods across the Midlands that would arrive down the river by boat.

With open views over the Hook Nature Reserve in Lady Bay, Trent Basin is only 10 minutes by bike to the railway station, the city centre and West Bridgford for access to restaurants, cafes and shopping. It plays a major role in the Nottingham Waterside regeneration project – a development that stretches out over 250 acres of land, making it one of the biggest of its kind in Europe.

Waterside regeneration

The Nottingham Waterside area is one that has been underdeveloped in the past, but with the arrival of a number of projects, Trent Basin among them, the space stretching from Trent Bridge to Colwick Park will be given a new lease of life.


Covering a long stretch of the river, the Basin also encompasses the site of the former Trent Lane Depot – an inland harbour that was once an important, thriving port for the transportation of cargo from the North East. Boats from Hull and neighbouring cities would arrive here, offloading goods such as Baltic timber and even cocoa, before being stocked with locally manufactured items and continuing their journey south.

This historic section of Trent Basin will be rejuvenated to allow the basin to be used for leisure purposes and boat moorings, ensuring that the present development recognises and celebrates the area’s past.
