Eyecare provider sets sights on Stockport 

Community Health and Eyecare will open a 6,500 sq ft treatment centre at 2 Stockport Exchange, taking the 62,000 sq ft building to 90% let. 

CHEC has signed a 10-year lease on a ground floor unit, joining BASF, O’Neil Patient, and Industrials REIT in the building. 

“Stockport Exchange continues to be hugely popular due to its prime location and high specification,” said Cllr Colin MacAlister, cabinet member for economy and regeneration at Stockport Council. 

“Attracting high-quality businesses to the town centre who can take advantage of everything it has to offer is a key priority. We’ve certainly raised our profile with our growing business community and I wish CHEC well in their new location and look forward to welcoming them to Stockport.”  

Founded in 2012, CHEC works in partnership with optometrists and the NHS to deliver community-based ophthalmology services in the UK, providing treatments for conditions such as glaucoma and cataracts. 

The company has 17 branches nationwide. The Stockport centre is the firm’s fourth in the North West. Its others are in Accrington, Blackpool, and Preston. 

Developed by Muse Developments for Stockport Council, 2 Stockport Exchange completed in 2021. The building is the third phase of the £145m Exchange masterplan. The first phases saw the delivery of a multistorey car park, a Holiday Inn hotel and, 1 Stockport Exchange, which is let to occupiers including Music Magpie and Stagecoach.

Another office building, 3 Stockport Exchange, is currently under construction. 

Tom Webber, senior development surveyor at Muse, said: “Our vision with the council has been to create one of the most-connected business destinations in the region that benefits both the town and the community, and together we’re delivering that vision. 

“What we’re creating is a catalyst for wider regeneration in the town, which is creating a brighter future for Stockport. We’re proud to continue playing a part in the town’s future success through the Mayoral Development Corporation.” 

Cushman & Wakefield and CBRE are joint agents for Stockport Exchange.

Fantastic to see the development slowly get more and more occupied, it’s such an improvement to what was there before.

Yes it’s good for stockport work force but but the problem is on one parks at the station car park as it’s expensive so they all park on residential of edgeley making life difficult for residents with car returning from work to park

By Edgeley resident

Edgeley resident – Yes. If only there was a station nearby, or perhaps a really frequent bus service on the A6 so that people had an option other than driving to their office in the most accessible place in the whole of Stockport.

By the light of the moon

Sure Light of the moon. Try getting your mother to Wythenshawe hospital twice a month on the bus. Or anywhere for that matter.
