And off we go...41,000 sq ft PRE-LET

Quote:
EY confirms Two St Peter’s Square pre-let

Accountancy firm EY has agreed a 15-year lease on 41,000 sq ft in Mosley Street Ventures' Manchester city centre office block which is currently under construction.

The offices will be on the eighth, ninth and tenth floors. The firm is set to move its 450 staff from 100 Barbirolli Square into the property by 2017.

The 11-storey block next to Argent and Greater Manchester Pension Fund's One St Peter's Square is being developed by Fred and Peter Done's property company. Laing O'Rourke was named as the contractor earlier this year. SimpsonHaugh & Partners is the architect.

The new development will total 160,000 sq ft, with 5,142 sq ft of ground floor leisure space and a two-storey underground car park for 72 vehicles.

Addleshaw Goddard remains the only unfulfilled requirement within the Barbirolli set, with EY's announcement a week after PwC confirmed that it had agreed a 50,000 sq ft pre-let in Allied London's No.1 Spinningfields. DLA Piper secured a 40,000 sq ft lease in One St Peter's Square at the end of last year.

Simon Allport, North West senior partner at EY, said: "Two St Peter's Square will be an outstanding development in a flourishing area for business and culture in Manchester, following the transformation of St Peter's Square, the town hall and the Central Library.
"The building's convenient location, environmental efficiency and leading edge design will create the ideal environment for our North West people and clients to work in, as well as act as an important regional hub for the wider UK firm."

Cushman & Wakefield and SGH Martineau advised EY.

DTZ and Myersons advised Mosley Street Ventures.

Mayfield
Masterplan | Midtown

No. of homes: 1,300 | Office: 800,000sqft | Cost: £500m

Current Status: Pre-Planning/Vision

Thread: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...#post122860814


Cheeky render released of the Mayfield masterplan in the latest edition of PropertyWeek, showing a 30-storey tower amongst red-brick apartments and a park.






They'll be 1,300 apartments, 800,000sqft of office space and a 350 bedroom hotel. Phase 1 is due to complete 2018/19, with the whole project realised by 2025.

Mayfield sits behind Piccadilly rail station in a currently derelict fringe site of the city centre.

With this, the St John's masterplan, the Angel Gardens masterplan, New Bailey, Great Jackson and developments at Greengate, Ancoats and New Islington, the city centre (or the developed high density core of the city) is expanding rapidly.

Central Manchester market is getting potty.......


21 NQ Apartments Sold In Ten Minutes
Quote:
Buyers were charged £1,000 just to view Finlay's Warehouse on Dale Street

TWENTY-ONE apartments sold in only ten minutes when a new Northern Quarter conversion designed by architect Roger Stephenson OBE hit the market.

Julie Twist: "I've never known anything like this before"

Such was the demand for Finlay’s Warehouse at 56 Dale Street that would-be buyers were charged £1,000 just to book a viewing on launch day.

If they didn’t show up they lost their grand.

Agent Julie Twist said: "There has been such interest in Finlay’s Warehouse, something like 900 interested buyers, that I've never known anything like this before.


Finlay's warehouse: the conversion of this building into apartments:

"Landmark building set for a makeover in European deal"...

Quote:
"European investors are to refurbish a city centre landmark as the Manchester economy powers ahead"

Catalyst Capital, the European real estate investment and asset management firm, has won planning consent for a makeover and extension at Arkwright House, Parsonage Gardens.

The Grade-II listed building will increase in size from 87,000 sq ft to 105,000 sq ft.

The transformation of Arkwright House follows similar projects by Catalyst in Manchester at Ship Canal House and 26 Cross Street.

Construction is expected to begin this spring, with completion in 2016.

Giles Hall, portfolio manager at Catalyst Capital, said: “The brief was for a full and sympathetic refurbishment and improvement of the existing office accommodation to deliver regular-shaped, flexible floorplates.

“The project will provide a modern air-conditioned office environment within a beautiful historic structure overlooking a garden square.

“It matches new buildings in terms of performance, but is priced at a lower rent.”

Chris Cheap of GVA , who is advising on the project, said: “Arkwright House sits in a unique location within Manchester’s office core.

“The access to amenity is underpinned by direct access to a green open space, creating an unrivalled working environment. The key to unlocking this building’s potential is to provide a large, efficient, flexible floorplate for today’s office occupier and to improve the interior quality of space in order to create state-of-the-art accommodation set against the backdrop of the building’s original features”.

Designed in a neo-classical style by local architect Harry S Fairhurst, for the English Sewing Cotton Company and completed in 1937, it is a popular business address.

Catalyst Capital will extend the first- to-sixth floors of Arkwright House, by infilling the three rear light wells, which will be extensively glazed to maximise natural light and deliver a finish that is respectful of this highly-crafted listed building.

Deloitte Real Estate North West acted as planning consultant for Catalyst.

GVA and CBRE are joint letting agents.

Missguided to build new Manchester head office and warehouse

24 March 2015

By Jill Geoghegan

Young fashion etailer Missguided is to open a new head office and fulfilment centre in Manchester as it teams up with logistics partner Norbert Dentressangle.

The seven-year deal will see the transport and logistics company manage Missguided’s international orders as the business continues to expand globally, building on its current websites serving the UK, US, France and Australia.

Missguided will move to a new 45,000 sq ft office in Salford Quays later this year to allow for an increase in staff numbers, although it declined to say how many people it employs. The head office is currently located at Coronet Way in Manchester.

A new fulfilment facility, totalling one million sq ft, will be constructed near Salford Quays and will be five times the size of the current Missguided warehouse and head office. Work on the building will start in June this year and is expected to finish in April 2016.

The move will result in a split between the warehouse and office for the first time; however, staff will continue to work across both locations to maintain a “fully integrated operation”.

Norbert Dentressangle will take over responsibility for the warehouse, including the receipt of goods from Missguided’s suppliers, order picking, marshalling, packing, despatch and returns management.

Nitin Passi, managing director of Missguided, said: “The past few years have seen significant new resource join the team, and so it comes as no surprise that we have outgrown our current premises. We are glad to be staying close to our present location.”

Missguided secures NW shed

Online fashion brand Missguided has secured a 268,000 sq ft distribution centre in the North West as it continues its rapid growth trajectory.

Third-party logistics operator Norbert Dentressangle will service the online retailer’s contract at a Legal & General and Evander-owned site in Trafford Park, Manchester.

The French company has signed to prelet the Grand Central building, in the Central Park trading estate, and will pay a rent of around £5.75/sq ft when the shed is completed in 2016.

L&G and developer Evander have planning consent for a 250,000 sq ft unit on the 11.7 acre site, but will submit a new planning application for a larger unit to suit the needs of the tenant.

Savills, GVA and JLL marketed the site. Norbert Dentressangle was represented by Louch Shatlock

Hail and Farewell...

Farewell Cornerhouse, hello HOME

Manchester’s much-loved arthouse cinema, gallery and music venue promises to go out with a bang on Saturday before move to new £25m building

For 30 years it has been the bedrock of Manchester’s cultural life, serving as a meeting point and drinking hole for the city’s independent minds, as well as an arthouse cinema and gallery.

But on Saturday the much-loved Cornerhouse will close its doors for good as the whole enterprise moves up the road and into HOME, a £25m, multi-disciplinary arts centre billed as the largest in England outside London.

Determined to go out with a bang, the directors have organised a music event and art performance to bid the building farewell, featuring a troupe of drag queens, a gang of female bikers, a team of synchronised swimmers marooned on dry land, as well as group of disabled people on mobility scooters.

The latter are taking part in The Storming, a mass participation artwork by Panamanian artist Humberto Vélez, which kicks off the wake at 4pm. It takes inspiration from Storming the Winter Palace, an incredible “mass spectacle” featuring 10,000 people staged in 1920 Soviet Russia to mark the anniversary of the 1917 communist revolution.

At 9pm part two will get underway with a musical and theatrical extravaganza curated by DJ and arts producer Greg Thorpe.

"Gary Neville and Make give it another go"...

Quote:
Footballer who hired and fired Tellytubby architect picks it for £140m commercial job

Former premiership footballer Gary Neville has appointed Make to design his biggest property development yet in the centre of Manchester.

The £140 million Jackson’s Row project will see several historic buildings demolished to make way for the blocks of flats which Neville said he hoped would “entice families back into the city”.

Neville famously hired and then fired Make as designer of his country home near Bolton in 2007.

But making it clear that bygones are bygones, he told the Manchester Evening News: “Make Architects are a significant architect company globally, not just in the UK, and have designed iconic buildings in England. We want people to think ‘wow’. We are always trying to build something that is different and hasn’t been built or done before.”

Make’s design for a flower-shaped eco house for Manchester United captain Gary Neville

He originally appointed the practice to design the north-west’s first zero-carbon dwelling. The partly subterranean house, likened to the Tellytubbies’ TV home, won planning in 2011 but Neville abandoned the plans and hired German practice Architekturburo Lowe a year later.

The Jackson’s Row project will mix residential with a hotel and some retail. It will also include new open spaces to attract pedestrians into the development. Neville, who is also a coach for the England national football team, said he hoped it would turn the 0.6ha area between Spinningfields, Deansgate and Albert Square into a “destination”.

Quote:
The design includes cut-out corners to create “gardens in the sky” as well as a roof terrace.
“There’s no excuse for any building that’s built in Manchester not to have a roof terrace now,” he said. “We’ve got to get those M&E designers working a lot harder to move the plant somewhere else.”

Manchester’s post-war Reform Synagogue, the former Bootle Street police station – which has been bought by the council in a step that removes the last barrier to development – and a historic pub are all scheduled for demolition to make way for the flats. Neville said he was working with English Heritage.

The Sky Sports pundit is also behind a number of other developments in the city, including Hotel Football at Old Trafford and a project to convert the old Stock Exchange into a business hub, which won planning last month. Both of these schemes are by AEW Architects.

Hotel Gotham Manchester Opens 7th April Fabulous...

Hotel Gotham: Exclusive first look inside Manchester's newest five star hotel

The luxurious Hotel Gotham will open its doors next month, we've had a sneak preview inside the five star's 1930s-style interiors on King Street


Manchester's newest five star hotel is preparing to open - and we’ve had an exclusive sneak preview of the seriously luxurious and nostalgic interiors of Hotel Gotham on King Street.

Owners of the venue have painstakingly restored and transformed the imposing former bank building ready to open to the public on April 7 as Hotel Gotham.

It will be exactly 80 years since the building first started life as a bank at the top of King Street, and they hope they have now created
Quote:
“Europe’s sexiest hotel.”
The hotel’s design is inspired by the Art Deco heritage of the building, and set out over seven floors, including the Honey restaurant which will be open to the public on the sixth floor, and a swanky private members bar, Club Brass, on the top floor with stunning views across the city.

Designers have made plenty of playful nods to that banking past - in the bedrooms with gold ingot toiletry displays and moneybag-style laundry bags, in the restaurant with typewriters on the wall, and in the bar with briefcases for lightfittings.

Lead-designer, Oliver Redfern of Squid-Inc said: “We wanted to pay tribute to a major building designed by ‘one of the greatest British architects’, Edwin Lutyens whilst injecting a distinct fresh personality. I’m sure the guests will have as much fun at Hotel Gotham as we have had in creating it”.

Guests will be welcomed into the building by Bell Boys who will man the 24-hour entrance hall, before you are whisked up to the main reception on the sixth floor.

Only guests with a reservation at the hotel, restaurant or bar will be allowed inside, as part of the hotel’s ethos is to provide a discrete and private experience for all of its clients, which is set to be a hit with both the city’s resident and visiting VIP and celebrity crowds.

There are 60 bedrooms in the hotel, all individually designed, with opening prices to start from £150, up to £1,000 a night for the plush Gotham Suites and “Inner Sanctum Suites” at the core of the hotel.

Hopefully with Axis?(28 stories) and Whitworth Street(37 stories), alongside Cambridge Street, there will be a really nice cluster of towers in the coming years.
