Wuhan Square

First look at £130m China Cluster at Airport City

Manchester Airports Group has released artist’s impressions of its planned China Cluster at Airport City Manchester, which will deliver 500,000 sq ft of commercial space for Chinese businesses.

The China Cluster will be based around two campuses within the Airport City development, Wuhan Square and Shenzhen Gardens.

NORD Architecture designed Wuhan Square, while Ben Adams Architects designed Shenzhen Gardens.

The development of the cluster within the £800m Airport City was announced as part of Chinese President Xi Jinping’s visit to the UK last week

Announced in October 2013, Airport City Manchester is a joint venture partnership that brings together Manchester Airports Group, Beijing Construction Engineering Group, Carillion PLC, the Greater Manchester Pension Fund and Argent.
