Brookfinch completes Northern Quarter offices

Developer Brookfinch has finished its £4.5m office development on the corner of Turner Street and Kelvin Street, central Manchester.

The Margolis building comprises part new-build and part refurbished Grade II-listed mills and cottages.

The 19,000 sq ft scheme has 16 units for sale or to lease, ranging in size from 400 sq ft to 2,436 sq ft.

Garry Finch, director of Brookfinch, commented: "We initially had the opportunity to convert the existing clothing warehouse into a residential scheme, but we realised the need to ease the chronic shortage of freehold offices in the city. The scheme provides an excellent opportunity for young and established businesses to acquire their own office, which previously was not an option in Manchester for small companies."

Paul Fellowes, from Investec Private Bank, who funded the deal, added: "The Northern Quarter is renowned for its creative industries, however, it is increasingly becoming a fundamental part of Manchester as a growing global city. Brookfinch's concept of providing small quirky office units allows companies the opportunity to invest in their own office accommodation, a unique offer which we anticipate will be well received."

Daniel Bourmad, partner, Knight Frank, agent for the scheme said it would "act as the missing link in the city marketplace."
