Work has commenced at Stubbs Mill in New Islington, the latest commercial redevelopment project for Urban Splash in Manchester.
The 30,000 sq ft scheme will boast canalside, flexible workspaces housed in a former machine works.
Much of the original, industrial structure will be retained in the new building, which has been designed by Sixtwo Architects.
Speaking of the works on site, Urban Splash director Nathan Cornish said: “This is an iconic building; its raw industrial features give us an interesting architectural framework and give future occupiers a creative and unique space to work.
“It is another fantastic addition to our rich and diverse commercial portfolio. I’m delighted to be working with Artez on it.”
Stubbs Mill is one of two live Urban Splash sites at New Islington; the company is also currently putting in place the first dwellings as part of its hoUSe scheme; a revolutionary residential concept.
Nathan continued: “Preparatory work on this site’s been taking place for a few months and now we’re putting the first five homes in place so it’s a really exciting time for us in Manchester.”
The works, which are being carried out by Bolton based Artez, will complete in 2015. Anyone wishing to enquire about space in the building should contact Paul Jones, firstname.lastname@example.org
