Building Design Partnership is to help Marks & Spencer make space for a new Selfridges department store in the cash-strapped general retailer's Manchester city store.

The architect was commissioned in 1997 to design the shop, which was central to the rebuilding of Manchester after it was devastated by an IRA bomb. Marks & Spencer has released half of the shop's space, about 12,000m 2, for use by Selfridges as its new Manchester home. The department store will occupy the glazed northern elevation of the building which overlooks Exchange Square. Work to accommodate the new tenant will not change the building's facade.
