M&S and Pure Gym sign at Piccadilly Basin

9 May 2011, 10:35


Marks & Spencer and Pure Gym have signed leases totalling 38,678 sq ft with Town Centre Securities at the Urban Exchange development in Manchester.

There is now just one retail unit of 7,233 sq ft remaining to let to on the ground floor of the 120,000 sq ft building. Other tenants include Aldi and GO Outdoors, which opened on 1 April.

Marks & Spencer signed a lease for a 19,353 sq ft ground floor unit which will become an outlet store. CB Richard Ellis represented Marks & Spencer; Town Centre Securities represented itself.

Twenty-four hour gym operator Pure Gym agreed a 15-year lease for 19,326 sq ft over the lower ground floor. Cushman & Wakefield and BNP Paribas represented Town Centre Securities and Pure Gym was unrepresented.

Yorkshire-based contractor GMI Construction has been appointed to carry out both store fit-outs. Work on the Marks & Spencer outlet is due to begin shortly with the store scheduled to open in the summer.

The deals represent the tail end of the turnaround in fortunes for TCS at the 120,000 sq ft building which was left vacant when Danish furniture retailer Iilva went into administration in 2008.

Edward Ziff, chairman and chief executive of Town Centre Securities, said: "To be in a situation where a prominent building of this magnitude is left vacant presents many challenges and we are incredibly proud to have been able to overcome these to create a successful scheme in the midst of a challenging economic climate. We have always had confidence in the whole Piccadilly Basin scheme as it occupies such a key site within the city of Manchester and the major retailers we now have in occupation will undoubtedly ensure its continued success."

The Manchester offices of BNP Paribas and Cushman & Wakefield are handling enquiries in the remaining retail unit at Urban Exchange.

An interesting little idea for Piccadilly Basin, could it possibly be linked with events at Urban Exchange. I imagine that it will give some fight to Screenfields though if it happens.

Lumen specialises in projections in unusual places. Here, we are testing a projection for a drive-in cinema in a car park in Manchester.

Turning a car park into a cinema

Yesterday evening we did a test projection in Manchester for an upcoming drive-in cinema event. It looked pretty great, even before the full onset of darkness! Thanks to Alex at CityCo for inviting us along.

There appears to be a building of sorts under construction next to the Piccadilly station multi-storey opposite Rail House - they've shut off the road (I think it's Boad Street?) off Store Street and there are a number of concrete columns poking up. Anyone happen to know what this is?

Q One Agency and Society Agencies take offices at Piccadilly Basin

April 23, 2012

Two fashion agencies, Q One Agency and Society Agencies, are to take offices at 75 Dale Street, part of the Piccadilly Basin development in Manchester.

Each company has taken a floor of the 1,350 sq ft self-contained building, which was the former headquarters of the Rochdale Canal Company. Both agencies specialise in contemporary womenswear and represent a range of independent fashion labels from the UK and abroad, including Numph, Finders Keepers, Second Female, Jovonna, Kelly Ewing and Mina.

The Grade II listed building, dating back to 1808, still has a number of original features including mosaic, stone-flagged and wooden floors, the staircase and feature fireplaces.

The landlord is Leeds-based property investment and development company Town Centre Securities. Michele Quiligotti, firector of Society Agencies, said: “It’s important for us to be right at the heart of the fashion quarter so the location is perfect. It’s great to be in this quirky building that has so much character and it helps us really stand out from the crowd when our customers visit to view the collections.

We’ve even themed the rooms differently to suit the style of the clothes. We already feel really at home in this environment and love it.”

Linked to the expansion of the Sharp Project into the city centre as alluded to below? (From the Sharp project thread)

TOWN Centre Securities today said it was continuing to explore development opportunities in Manchester and Leeds.

The property development and investment group, which is based in Leeds, said it was continuing to look at opportunities at Piccadilly Basin in Manchester and looking at bringing its Whitehall Road site in Leeds forward.

The group has also submitted a detailed planning application for its proposed Waitrose store development at Milngavie outside Glasgow.

Commenting on the period from July 1 to November 14, chairman Edward Ziff said: "We have made further progress during the period including our two acquisitions which provide opportunities for future growth.

"I am pleased that we have maintained high occupancy levels in a very competitive market place reflecting our investment in major cities. The current economic environment remains uncertain and our view remains cautious."

The group said its investment portfolio had performed in line with expectations its our car park division had "performed well". The company has seen net debt increase to £152.9m.

JV debuts with Piccadilly flats

15 Mar 2016, 00:01

Piccadilly Basin in Manchester will receive the first project by a new joint venture between Town Centre Securities and GMI Construction Holdings, to be known as Belgravia Living Group.

The 91 apartments at Tariff Street are part of a 900-unit masterplan for Piccadilly Basin. A £9.741m loan has been approved by the Greater Manchester Combined Authority from the Greater Manchester Housing Fund to support the first phase of development on Tariff Street within Town Centre Securities’ Piccadilly Basin development.

Detailed planning consent has been granted for the first phase which will see the development of a 90,000 sq ft building, Burlington House, which has been designed by SimpsonHaugh & Partners. There will be a mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments. Preparatory site work will commence in April 2016, with an 18 month development programme set to start in June this year.

Belgravia Living Group said delivery of all 900 residential units at Piccadilly Basin will take six years. The total development value of all phases combined is estimated at around £300m. One of the later phases will include two towers, one of up to 35 storeys.

Piccadilly Basin has been transformed by Town Centre Securities since an original masterplan was approved in 1998. In addition to the development of BDP’s office building, the Urban Exchange Retail Village and a multi-storey car park, 150 apartments were created at Vantage Quay and Jackson’s Warehouse with the listed Carver’s Warehouse restored and extended to house local start-ups.

Belgravia Living Group is headquartered in Carver’s and headed by Robert Rushworth, formerly of Shepherd Construction Group.

GMI Construction is based in Leeds and has a housebuilding subsidiary, Duchy Homes.

Edward Ziff, chairman and chief executive of Town Centre Securities, said: “We have been committed to the regeneration of Piccadilly Basin for many years and the Piccadilly North neighbourhood will become even more strategically important with the delivery of HS2. The funding has facilitated commencement of the first phase of 91 apartments and we are looking forward to working in partnership to deliver this important scheme.”

Urban Splash announces next Northern Quarter project

The regeneration company has signed a development agreement with Town Centre Securities to bring forward the residential conversion of Brownsfield Mill in Manchester.

The 45,000 sq ft Victorian mill on Great Ancoats Street forms part of TCS’ Piccadilly Basin regeneration area. One of the few remaining undeveloped mills in Manchester, the grade two-listed structure includes red brick, timber and big windows, and was formerly home to aviation company Avro.

The number of flats to be included in the building is yet to be confirmed, but Urban Splash said the scheme “will offer traditional, canal-side apartments; some of them the biggest in the city with lateral lofts of up to 4,000 sq ft of space taking up entire floorplates”.

A design team will be announced in the coming weeks.

Urban Splash chairman Tom Bloxham said: “Brownsfield Mill was really appealing to us; we started developing loft apartments 25 years ago and it’s been a joy to find this immaculate building beside the canal in the Northern Quarter. There is lots of design work to be done but we’re looking forward in due course to revealing more details about this building.”

This is the second portfolio announcement in a week for Urban Splash, following its recent purchase of the Office Village scheme in Salford Quays with joint venture partner Pears. In the past year the company has also acquired developments around the country including Barton Business Park in Eccles, the former Regiment pub in Castlefield, Phoenix Mill in Ancoats plus sites in Walsall, Salford.
