Glenn Howells Architects has submitted plans for a £70 million office building in Manchester’s Spinningfields
The scheme for Worthington Properties will provide 10,500m2 of Grade A office space alongside 1,100m2 of shops.
The new building will replace Holford Associates’ 10-storey postmodern Lincoln House office building (1986) at 123-127 Deansgate and forms part of the wider redevelopment of Brazenose Street and Lincoln Square.
Dav Bansal, director at Glenn Howells Architects, said: ‘Paying homage to the industrial character of Deansgate with its red Victorian architecture, we are delighted with the contemporary yet strikingly calm approach to the design that compliments the centrepiece grade I-listed John Ryland Library within this pivotal setting. It marks a significant opportunity on Deansgate and is a catalyst for the transformation of this area.’
Construction on the project is set to begin in 2016.
