Child Graddon Lewis has unveiled concept designs for a 46,000m2 tech-led commercial campus scheme in Manchester
The London and Leeds based practice’s Enterprise City Campus would extend the St John’s regeneration scheme, and replace part of the adjacent Trinity Islands development.
The campus would offer workspace for the tech and media industries as well as retail and restaurants at ground floor, and car parking below.
Practice director Paul Graddon said: ‘Imagine waking up in the morning and looking out over stunning views of Manchester from your Trinity Islands apartment, going down to the gym, picking up your coffee to then walk along the river bank, into one of the most exciting and well-connected workspaces in the city.
‘The addition of Enterprise City Campus, to what is already one of the most forward-thinking regeneration schemes in the UK, creates another brilliant opportunity for Manchester and its residents.’

Developer Allied London is behind the campus as part of its huge regeneration of the former Granada Studios site and surrounds.
Allied London chief executive Michael Ingall, speaking at last week’s MIPIM property fair, said: ‘At this stage, it’s only a concept, but it could lead to a significant expansion of Enterprise City – it’s the difference between 10,000 and 15,000 workers.
‘It’s deliberately designed for modern industry and has a real purpose focused on inward investment for enterprising businesses.’
Child Graddon Lewis last year won approval for its five-tower Trinity Islands scheme, which includes a 67-storey skyscraper.
