Another 245,000 sq ft of offices planned at Stockport Exchange  

Once complete, Muse and the council’s £145m development will comprise 375,000 sq ft of workspace as well as homes. 

Muse and Stockport Council are seeking feedback from the public ahead of submitting plans for 4 Stockport Exchange, a 60,000 sq ft office. 

The partners will also seek outline consent for future phases of the masterplan, which could include another 185,000 sq ft of workspace and up to 100 apartments. 

Sheppard Robson is working up designs for the future phases.  

Have your say on the plans by taking part in the consultation. 

Tom Webber, senior development manager at Muse, said: “We are very proud of the progress we have made at Stockport Exchange to date, and we want to continue this success with the development of 4 Stockport Exchange and the final phases of the scheme. 

“The offices at Stockport Exchange continue to attract an array of occupiers looking to locate to an accessible, sustainable business hub, so it’s fantastic that we can continue to deliver more workspace, as well as potentially including a residential element to the wider scheme.” 

Last month, Galliford Try completed the construction of the third office block at Stockport Exchange. 

3 Stockport Exchange provides 64,000 sq ft of office space across six floors. 

The first tenant at the building was secured several months before the completion of the scheme when independent accountancy firm Hurst signed an 11,000 sq ft pre-let on the top floor.  

The scheme was the third office block to complete at Stockport Exchange, which is located next to the town’s train station.  

1 and 2 Stockport Exchange are fully let to the likes of BASF, Industrials REIT, Stagecoach and MusicMagpie. 

Cllr Colin MacAlister, cabinet member for economy and regeneration at Stockport Council, said: “Stockport Exchange continues to go from strength to strength and this last phase reinforces our commitment to not only deliver more high-quality office space. 

“It also incorporate much needed homes in a desirable, town centre location. Stockport Exchange has been an integral part of our £1bn regeneration plans, attracting international businesses and raising the bar in terms of quality and design.”

Considering how accessible this site is, its disappointing how low scale some of the completed buildings closest to the station are. Could have added at least 3 or 4 storeys to some of them. The proposed residential tower next to the station should also be increased in height to be more of a landmark building.
