Aviva Investors has revealed its newly refurbished seven storey office building at 11 York Street, Manchester, which comprises 79,000 sq ft of Grade A office space on the site formerly home to Oddfellows House.

Sitting within Manchester’s central business district, 11 York Street comprises office floor plates ranging from 10,200 sq ft and 11,700 sq ft.

The refurbishment of the building, undertaken in partnership with Kier, includes a private event terrace, two ground floor retail and leisure units of 5,300 sq ft each, along with 23 basement car parking spaces.

11 York Street is one of several buildings in Aviva Investors’ portfolio of properties in central Manchester, which includes 201 Deansgate, 55 Spring Gardens as well as investments into the city’s Enterprise City and Square Circle developments.

Paul Smith, Asset Manager for Aviva Investors said:

“York Street is an important scheme within our Manchester portfolio and we are delighted to see it reach completion. The project offers a high-class office space with unrivalled amenities in the prime location of a city we believe has all the attributes to thrive in the knowledge economy over the coming years and decades. We look forward to creating a vibrant destination for our occupier clients and the outstanding community management team we have in place will ensure this is fulfilled.”

11 York Street was designed by AHR Architects. OBI are acting agents for the scheme.

Andrew Cowell from OBI said:

“11 York Street is perfectly located in Manchester’s prime city core. The ground floor meeting space, event space and breakout spaces showcases the level of amenity the building offers. On Level 8 there is further event space and a stunning roof terrace with fantastic views across the city.

“The workspace at 11 York Street is perfectly suited for modern business and is attracting significant interest and I am sure that over the coming weeks we will be announcing news of new occupiers.”

11 York Street has received the official platinum CyclingScore accreditation – the highest level of accreditation available – with 58 cycle storage spaces at basement level plus showers, lockers and drying room facilities for tenants and visitors.
The building has also been recognised with a Wired Score Platinum rating. Kier Property purchased the entire freehold of this prime central Manchester scheme, from Aberdeen Asset Management in November 2016 and Aviva Investors agreed a forward funding deal to acquire the freehold interest in February 2018.
