Deansgate Chapel office revamp completes

M20 Property has completed the refurbishment of the former Chapel at 378 Deansgate in central Manchester.

M20 bought the 11,800 sq ft grade two-listed Chapel earlier this year from Bluetree Estates and has refurbished the building to include a large outdoor area for occupiers. The former Knott Mill Chapel, designed by Edward Waitress who also designed Manchester's Free Trade Hall, was converted into offices in 2009. The building was used in the 1980s by pop music producers Stock, Aitken and Waterman.

Media company Amaze was the last tenant in the building, occupying the space briefly in 2009 and 2010 before moving to Ask's No. 1 First Street.

Many of the original features of the building have been retained in the refurbishment and would suit a single occupier or two separate office units. There are 20 car parking spaces provided.

M20 is a investment, development and property trading group based in West Didsbury with a focus on Greater Manchester projects.

Peter Quinn, director of M20, said: "The Chapel is one of the most recognisable buildings in Manchester and we're very pleased to bring it back into use. It's in a one off location situated were you can sit at your desk while looking over historical Castlefield, then step outside and enjoy a BBQ on the decking or sunbathe on the grass next to the canal."

OBI Property is joint agent with Matthews & Goodman.
