Glenn Howells Architects has been given the go-ahead for this new £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, said: ‘The scheme is in a great location as a key marker to the growing commercial district of Spinningfields and strengthening its connection to Manchester’s civic quarter. We are delighted with the support from the city’s planning team for this ambitious project and look forward to now delivering it over the coming years.’
Russell Worthington, director of Worthington Properties, added: ‘This is a significant opportunity to provide quality office space in one of the busiest and most sought after locations in Manchester. The building is going to complement the surrounding area and help to transform the landscape, and we’re looking forward to starting work in the New Year.’
Construction on the project is set to begin in 2016.
