The Manchester office of CBRE has confirmed the relocation of its 110 Manchester-based staff to new offices at flagship office development, One St Peter’s Square, following a record year for the North West business.
CBRE is moving from the Belvedere office building on Booth Street, increasing its office space by thirty per cent to 11,309 sq ft on the tenth floor of One St Peter’s Square, in the heart of Manchester’s new civic and business quarter.
The Office Agency team at CBRE negotiated a 15 year lease, demonstrating the firm’s long term commitment to the Manchester business and forming part of the company's ambitious plans to support future growth throughout the city and the North West.
The new office space has been designed to support modern working principals with a clear focus on both the staff and client experience. Client meeting rooms will be positioned overlooking one of the city’s most iconic squares, with views of the Midland Hotel, Manchester Central Library and the Town Hall extension.
CBRE’s Building Consultancy team will manage the fit-out process and has appointed TP Bennett as Architect and Overbury as contractor following a competitive design competition. CBRE is set to take occupation of its new offices in May 2018.
John Ogden, executive director and MD of CBRE’s North West Business, commented: "The relocation of our Manchester office to One St Peter’s Square follows on from another record year for our North West business and, in addition to reflecting our continued growth, is an investment into our valued staff and clients. This is a prestigious address in the heart of Manchester’s historic business district and we are delighted to confirm our move. The significant 30 per cent increase of office space is testament to the strength of the business and our future growth plans.
“We are the first firm of surveyors to locate to St Peter’s Square in recent times, which further endorses the area as Manchester’s new civic and business quarter. It promises to be an inspiring workspace for our staff and will provide a flexible platform in response to our evolving business needs, supporting our drive to lead from the front in terms of innovation.”
