3 Hardman Street | Spinningfields | 74.9m | 16 floors

3 Hardman Street should have it's own thread.

3 Hardman Street

3 Hardman Street will be a major headquarters building totalling some 360,000 sq ft of office space with floor plates ranging from 8,000 to 35,000 sq ft. It has been uniquely designed to provide the ability to divide each floor into 2,3 or 4 arts in order to provide a comprehensive range of floor plate sizes of 10, 20, 30 and 35,000 sq ft. This building will offer one of the largest single floor plates in the city of Manchester and ensures maximum use of floor space through cellular office design with an emphasis on security, management and resilience. It also provides excellent brand opportunities due to the 2 parts of the building that are 12 and 15 floors high respectively. 3 Hardman Street is due to be constructed in Autumn 2006 and is available for pre-lease with completion due for Spring 2008.


Our original concerns about 3 Hardman Street.

Last few posts on 3 Hardman St from the spinningfields thread

Sheppard Robson on behalf of Allied London has received planning permission for 3 Hardman Street a 37,000m2 (400,000ft2) landmark office and retail building in Manchester, a key part of the 9ha regeneration of Spinningfields. “One of the challenges in dealing with such a large building - the floor plates range from 35,000ft2 to 10,000 ft2 at the top of the building - was to make it responsive to its wider and local context. Our brief from Allied London was also to ensure liquidity and flexibility within the design”, said Tim Evans creative director at Sheppard Robson. “To address this, the building is broken down by four stepped elements the highest point defining the corner of Hardman Square.” It is due to start on site in August 2005 for completion in early 2008

Interesting shot looking down Hardman Street and into Hardman Square there. Sort of confirms my fears about there perhaps being too much glass cladding being used at Spinningfields.

We saw this scheme at the Historical buildings panel late last year. We asked for some minor design changes and they look like they have responded (which is rare) so as time scales go that sounds about right. This version looks slightly more jaunty than the original - which was a bit bland. I would have prefered on big beast than the three steppy downy type thing but hey - what do i know?

Make way you ugly beast. No 3 Hardman Street is coming.

Scaffolding almost surrounding the building. Not long before it's demolished!

Why does Skyscrapernews.com have this down as only "proposed"? Surely the actual stage of this tower is approved?

I think someone's forgotten to update the website!

Of course, all of us who bothered to turn up instead of buggering off to Milton Keynes and who are now in the SODA gang have seen all of this (and more) already jcb!
Just accept it jerbers - you can post all the links you want but you'll never be in the SODA gang!
