MediaCityUK The Vic CGI Main Courtyard Dusk

GALLERY | Peel showcases £9m Victoria refurbishment

Peel has revealed the latest images of how the Victoria, its 115,000 sq ft office at Salford Quays, will look after its renovation, due to complete in March 2019.

The Victoria has seen two of its major tenants move elsewhere this year: Bupa has moved into a purpose-built facility in Salford Quays, while WSP is set to move to No8 First Street after it signed up for 55,000 sq ft over two floors.

Contractor Seddon is currently on site delivering a refurbishment that will see the 23-year-old building comprehensively overhauled, including upgraded M&E, remodelled offices, and common areas.

There will be outside areas fronting the Quays for exercise and socialising, while other newly-added amenities include a café, bike store, and showers.

The office is due to re-launch in March 2019 once Seddon completes on site.

Tim Taylor, leasing manager for Peel L&P, said: “The Vic is a complete rethink of one our largest and most prominent buildings in MediaCityUK. The well-documented evidence that workspaces need to serve the ever-changing attitudes of the modern occupier inspired us to evolve the proposition for the building to one that is more relaxed and fluid in its design. We also wanted people to connect more with the calming influence of natural landscaping and water.

“We’ve included little touches like outdoor breakfast bars on the waterside terrace meaning you will be able to grab a coffee from Bean and work in the fresh air, connected to the WiFi, whilst overlooking a lush, green, waterside setting. There’s not a lot of places in Greater Manchester where you can do that so we’re excited about our plans and we think it will prove popular with businesses who care about the wellbeing of their staff.”

Avison Young and Cushman & Wakefield are the retained agents for the building.
