Erie Basin is the eastern section of what used to be Dock 9 of the Manchester Docks before regeneration. This was the largest and newest dock, built on the site of the Manchester Racecourse and officially opened by King Edward VII and Queen Alexandra on 13 July 1905.

The large office block at the head of the dock standing at the head of Erie Basin is called The Anchorage. Completed in 1991, it was the first large office block to be constructed in the Quays, completed in 1991.
