Allied triple takes Spinningfields occupiers past 40

Allied London has completed three office deals at Spinningfields in Manchester city centre.

The developer has let 50,000 sq ft at 3 Hardman Street: 10,000 sq ft to national law firm Shoosmiths, 14,000 sq ft to accountant PKF, which is moving out of the Regus serviced office in the same building, and 25,500 sq ft to lawyer Beachcroft.

These lettings follow those for a total of 60,000 sq ft for the General Medical Council in two separate deals and 15,000 sq ft to Pure Gym.

Allied said 35 companies have taken premises at Spinningfields in the past nine months, bringing the total number of occupants to 42.

Other tenants include BDO Stoy Hayward, Bank of New York Mellon, Pinsent Masons and Baker Tilly. In addition, Regus has 23 small firm tenants in 3 Hardman Street.

Mike Ingall, chief executive of Allied London, commented: "The activity at Spinningfields does not stop. This summer has seen the estate just buzzing and the demand from occupiers has been consistent. We have a real momentum and energy, and are delighted that Manchester really is adopting the development as its new prime business area.

"Our vision is becoming a reality. We have some exciting space to lease over the next six months – one floor of 35,000 sq ft in 3 Hardman Street, by far the best of its type in any city and in the UK, and then there is Number 1 The Avenue, which can offer an iconic headquarters building."

DTZ and Jones Lang LaSalle are agents for Allied London; Savills acted for PKF, King Sturge for Beachcroft, Jones Lang LaSalle for GMC and Ben Coleman Associates for Shoosmiths.
