How Airport City might look, with a park running through the middle

AIRPORT City Manchester will today announce a new 75,000 sq ft office scheme – the first of its kind in a unique £800m project.

It was being revealed at the international property exhibition MIPM currently under way in Cannes.

Located in the Central Business District of Airport City, joint venture partners have agreed to construct a new office building as a speculative scheme, due to strong occupier demand in the region.

The building will be sub-divisible in four ways on each floor and is designed to meet a specific market need strongly represented at Airport City.

Construction will start on site in the summer and it will be ready for new occupiers at the end of 2016.

Chief executive for property at Manchester Airports Group (MAG) Lynda Shillaw said: “We recently announced a speculative logistics scheme at Airport City’s Global Logistics site and our commitment to another spec building reflects our belief as a joint venture in the quality of our offer and the strength of the region’s economy.

“Airport City has already secured prestigious occupiers for the two existing 200,000 sq ft office buildings which are nearly 100% full, including Etihad, Sherwin Williams, PZ Cussons and SCA Hygiene.”

The new office scheme will form a key element of the Central Business District at Airport City alongside a 350-bedroom hotel, which has planning permission.

These developments form a crescent around the first phase of public realm and are adjacent to the recently expanded Ground Transport Interchange.

Over the next 10 years, Airport City Manchester will deliver 5m sq ft of office, logistics, hotel, retail, and advanced manufacturing space. The first of its kind in the UK, it will compete with successful airport cities across Europe including Amsterdam, Frankfurt and Barcelona and will potentially provide 16,000 employment opportunities.

Earlier last year, international logistics company DHL took occupation of a new bespoke facility totalling 37,308 sq ft. Constructed in less than nine months, the new DHL Service Point, was the first the first business to locate at the flagship development, which sits within a Government endorsed enterprise zone.

Airport City Manchester is a joint venture project with MAG (50%), Carillion PLC (20%), Beijing Construction Engineering Group (BCEG) (20%) and the Greater Manchester Pension Fund (GMPF) (10%). Plus Argent has been appointed as development manager for the project.

American B767 with new business seat coming to Manchester...

American Airlines will roster a newly-retrofitted B767-300ER onto its Manchester-New York JFK route this summer.

The aircraft features the carrier's fully-flat business class product and will operate between the two cities from March 29.

The business cabin has 28 seats, each with direct aisle access and arranged in a 1-2-1 configuration.

The B767-300ER's new seat covers and cushions are the same as those on American's refreshed B777 fleet (see news, April 2014), while the aircraft has satellite in-flight connectivity and an on-demand entertainment system.

Outbound service AA210 departs JFK at 1920 and arrives in Manchester at 0735 the next day, while return service AA211 leaves Manchester at 1015 and lands in New York at 1255.

David Thomas, American's director of sales for UK and Ireland, said: "The fully lie-flat seats with all-aisle-access are similar to our flagship B777-300ERs providing a more consistent transatlantic experience to our customers.

"Manchester is important to American and to our joint business with British Airways and so it is appropriate that it should be our UK launch market for these upgraded aircraft.

American Airlines reveals Manchester upgrade
InsiderMedia: http://www.insidermedia.com/insider/...hester-upgrade


Quote:
American Airlines is introducing its improved business class offering to Manchester before any other UK airport because of its strong corporate and middle-class profile, the airline has revealed.


Flights between Manchester Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport in New York will use the newly retrofitted Boeing 767-300ER aircraft from 29 March 2015.

Retrofitted Boeing 767s currently fly on the airline's main premium market routes throughout Europe connecting New York with Zurich, Milan, Paris, Barcelona and now Manchester.

The new-look planes feature 28 fully lie-flat Business Class seats with aisle access from every seat, as well as LCD drop-down monitors, digital audio systems, enhanced toilets and new seat covers and cushions in the main cabin.

In the UK, American Airlines flies from Heathrow, Manchester, Birmingham, Glasgow and Edinburgh.

At an event attended by Insider, David Thomas, American Airlines' regional director for the UK, Ireland, Israel, the Middle East and Africa, said the airline looks at Manchester "as a very important site".

He added: "Manchester is the largest regional airport that we fly to in the UK.

"We chose Manchester as the first UK airport to get that product because of the strong corporate business here and the strong middle class."

Mats Sigurdson, aviation director at Manchester Airports Group, said: "We are delighted that American Airlines is not only increasing capacity on its route to New York out of Manchester Airport, by upgrading to a Boeing 767, but it is also pleasing to see a new business-class product introduced."

Works begins on the Manchester Airport Relief Road...

"The 10km dual carriageway will link the A6 at Hazel Grove to the M56 at Manchester Airport via the existing A555 in Bramhall."

Quote:
Ground has finally been broken on the A6 to Manchester Airport Relief Road – after almost 80 years of planning.

Environmental works have started to prepare the site for the £290m road.

The 10km dual carriageway will link the A6 at Hazel Grove to the M56 at Manchester Airport via the existing A555 in Bramhall.

The scheme includes a spur which will link to the Poynton Relief Road, to boost transport links to Macclesfield and cut traffic through Poynton.

It is expected to take two-and-a-half years to construct and be open to traffic by autumn 2017.

The road was first mooted in the 1930s and the three councils involved – Stockport, Manchester City and Cheshire East – finally approved the application in early 2014.

In January, the government approved Stockport Council’s purchase of land to make way for the road following a public inquiry last September.

The road is predicted to boost the region’s economy by £2.5bn.

Councillor David Brown, deputy leader of Cheshire East Council and Cabinet Member for strategic outcomes, said: “This long-awaited project will provide a real economic boost to Cheshire East and the surrounding region.

“It will provide better connectivity across the north of the borough and improved access to employment opportunities at Manchester Airport and the Airport City Enterprise Zone.

“Locally, this is also a key step towards being able to deliver the Poynton Relief Road, which will relieve congestion in Poynton and provide improved connectivity to the strategic highway for the northern Macclesfield business area.”

MAN Catering Changes...

Quote:
Manchester and London Stansted airports have both unveiled enhancements to their airside catering.

Manchester airport has opened The Lion and Antelope, an eatery styled as a traditional pub, and Pork & Pickle, serving pastries, delicacies and bread.

Both are located in Terminal 3, where they have replaced Bar 08 in the centre of the departure lounge.

Beth Brewster, Manchester Airports Group's retail director, said: "We're delighted to officially open these brand new food and beverage facilities as part of the ongoing development of Terminal 3."

London Stansted, meanwhile, is midway through an £80 million refurbishment of its departure lounge.

Earlier this month, it opened a new £2.7 million Wetherspoons pub, Coast to Coast. Forthcoming are healthy fast food restaurants Itsu and Leon, a Pret-a-Manger sandwich eatery and a Harris+Hoole coffee shop.

The airport will also introduce the first airside James Martin Kitchen, a premium bakery.
