Lettings continue at Exchange Quay
Hunter Real Estate Investment Managers has let a further 13,000 sq ft at its Exchange Quay office complex in Salford Quays, taking the total lettings at the development to more than 100,000 sq ft in the past 12 months.
Global marketing agency, Gyro, personal injury claims firm ACH Group Management, and Kids Planet Day Nurseries are the latest occupiers to sign leases at the 433,637 sq ft Exchange Quay, which is spread across six office buildings.

Hunter completed a £10m investment programme at Exchange Quay last year, to upgrade the six office buildings to Grade A specification, in addition to remodelling the public realm and introducing occupier facilities.

Jeremy Birkett-Jones, investment director at Hunter, said; “Exchange Quay has been given a whole new lease of life and it is fantastic to walk around the development and see how thriving it has become with our occupiers making full use of the new amenity offering. We are pleased to accommodate gyro and ACH Group Management at Exchange Quay as the lettings momentum shows no signs of slowing.”
