Plans 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.
“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” says Russell Worthington, Director
The office scheme will occupy a prime office location on Deansgate strategically positioned and promises to deliver 113,500 sq ft of Grade A office space and a further 12,100 sq ft of retail space over two units.
Birmingham-based architecture practice, Glenn Howells Architects, whi designed One St Peter’s Square and Vimto Gardens in Manchester and Salford respectively, was tasked with creating the impressive designs.
Dav Bansal, director added: “Paying homage to the industrial character of Deansgate with its red Victorian architecture, we are delighted with the contemporary yet strikingly calm approach to the design that compliments the centrepiece Grade I Listed John Ryland Library within this pivotal setting. It marks a significant opportunity on Deansgate and is a catalyst for the transformation of this area.”
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.
