Henry Boot Developments and sister company Hallam Land Management have taken the eighth floor at 26 Cross Street in Manchester, and will relocate from offices at 1 Albert Square allowing the company’s construction arm to move in to the city centre from Ardwick.
The eighth floor of 26 Cross Street totals 2,161 sq ft.
Henry Boot projects in Manchester include a joint venture partnership with Capital & Centric on the £150m Kampus development, and the mixed-use Courthouse project on Deansgate which was completed in 2014.
Hallam Land Management is the strategic land arm of Henry Boot PLC, and the Manchester team is promoting land throughout the North West and currently selling development land with planning permission for more than 750 houses and mixed commercial uses.
Henry Boot Construction’s relocation from its building in Ardwick is part of the contractor’s expansion plans, as it targets £100m turnover of construction works annually.
Adam Brady, director and head of the Manchester office at Henry Boot Developments, said: “Henry Boot Developments’ portfolio is exciting and we have some really good schemes coming out of the ground. Moving into 26 Cross Street is going to be great for our Manchester team as we take our presence here to new levels in the next couple of years. We’re actively looking for new development opportunities where we can add real value, whether in our own right or in joint venture with others.”
26 Cross Street is an eight-storey 1930s building which has benefited from a recent £3m refurbishment by owner Catalyst Capital.
Bilfinger GVA acted on behalf of Catalyst Capital and is marketing the building jointly with OBI Property.
