Go-ahead for £70m Manchester office block

Go-ahead for £70m Manchester office blockPlans for a new £70 million office scheme in the heart of Manchester have been submitted by Worthington Properties, part of the Lancashire-based Marcus Worthington Group.

The landmark office scheme will occupy a prime office location on Deansgate strategically positioned between the gateway to Spinningfields and Manchester’s civic core.

It will deliver 113,500 sq ft of Grade A office space and a further 12,100 sq ft of retail space over two units that will pave the way for new jobs and boost the building trades.

Replacing 123-127 Deansgate, it will form an integral part of the wider redevelopment of Brazenose Street and Lincoln Square. Construction is expected to start in summer 2016.

Director Russell Worthington said: “This BREEAM Excellent scheme will deliver 113,500 sq ft Grade A office floorplates on one of the busiest and most sought after locations in Manchester. It will make a welcome addition to this area of the city and will complement what is happening in Lincoln Square and its immediate surrounds”

The proposed development will bring a new commercial address to Deansgate, ideally placed to meet occupiers’ requirements for Grade A office space and help fill what is currently a missing link between Spinningfields and the Civic Quarter around Lincoln Square.”
