AHMM wins approval for Greater Manchester debut

  • Comment

Plans by Allford Hall Monaghan Morris (AHMM) for a major office development in New Bailey, Salford have been given the go-ahead

The 25,236m² scheme at Two New Bailey Square will be the AJ100 practice’s first scheme in Greater Manchester.

Proposals for the 11-storey building include approximately 24,400m² of office space, underground car parking bays, cafes and restaurants and a public square. 

The floors will also have a flexible design so the space can be divided with each boasting a private outdoor terrace.

The project is being backed by English Cities Fund (ECf) – a joint venture between Muse Developments, Legal and General and the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA).

Speaking to the AJ, AHMM co-founder Simon Allford previously said: ’This will be our first job in Greater Manchester, although we are hoping a bid for a major masterplan in the area will also come off.

’We are keen to take ideas that we have been developing in London [such as the White Collar Factory] to other UK cities.’ 

Phil Mayall, development director at ECf, added: ’Two New Bailey Square’s design perfectly balances the characteristics of a high-quality, sustainable office building, with an honesty and integrity that will a provide truly unique development.’ 

The AHMM scheme is the latest development on the plot next to Spinningfields and follows the recent completion of RHWL’s One New Bailey in May (pictured bottom),

Construction is expected to start in early 2017.
