Adanola on the move to NOMA
Dantzic is set to welcome the Manchester-based activewear brand, which has taken up 13,000 sq ft at the grade two-listed office block.
Adanola, the fast-growing fashion brand made famous by Kim Kardashian, is making a move from its current base at Empress Business Centre in Old Trafford, where it has resided since 2020.
Founded in 2015, the company has seen a stark growth in recent years having reported a 311% increase in turnover in the 2022-2023 financial year.
The 55-strong team will now occupy two floors at Dantzic, which sits in the heart of Manchester city centre’s NOMA district.
Hyrum Cook, chief executive of Adanola, showed off the office’s parquet floors and “incredible windows” in a LinkedIn post, where he described now as the time to move into a “new home”. While he never named the building, the photos are clearly of Dantzic.
Built in 1937, the former warehouse building now offers close to 45,000 sq ft of workspace across six floors. This follows a Sheppard Robson-designed revamp, carried out by Russell WBHO and completed in 2019 on behalf of Hermes Investment Management.
Adanola joins the likes of IBI, which signed a 10-year lease on the fourth floor at Dantzic last January.
Spread across 20 acres, the wider NOMA district is also home to Amazon, The Co-operative Group, and WeWork, with an estimated 6,000 people working in the area.
NOMA is owned by investment manager Federated Hermes. MEPC, which Federated Hermes acquired in 2020, is the development and asset manager for the regeneration project.
Colliers and JLL are the retained agents for NOMA. Sixteen Real Estate advised Adanola on the deal.
Scott Shufflebottom, director at Sixteen Real Estate, said: “Adanola is a fast growing, market leading brand and it was a pleasure to advise them on their Manchester relocation.
“From the early stages in the acquisition process, we set out to secure a workspace that complemented their brand and enabled their employees whilst meeting the workplace requirements of the business.”
