Aviva’s 11 York Street fully let
Ecclesiastical Insurance has signed a 10-year lease for 6,500 sq ft within the Manchester office building, snapping up the last remaining space.
The insurance and financial services firm is relocating its Manchester office to the 86,000 sq ft 11 York Street from St Ann’s Place, joining the likes of AON and Avison Young.
Julian Cobourne, head of regional investment management at Aviva Investors, said: “To [achieve full occupancy] in a relatively short time following redevelopment of the asset shows how businesses value well-curated and modern office spaces which have been designed to cater to their evolving needs.
“It is a pleasure to welcome another high-quality business to York Street in the form of Ecclesiastical.”
He added: “Manchester remains an important region in our real estate portfolio, and we are pleased to be able to support the continued growth and development of its office market.”
OBI and CBRE are the retained agents on 11 York Street.
Other occupiers within the building include Rolls-Royce and flexible workspace provider Gilbanks.
