The asset manager has submitted plans to build a £5m office scheme next to Manchester International Office Centre, close to the airport. 

Manchester International Office Centre is a 100,000 sq ft 1950s building off Styal Road near Manchester Airport that Infinity bought in 2011. 

The company said it is looking to increase the capacity of the site for a single tenant by constructing a three-storey block on part of the lawn that fronts the existing building. 

The scheme is being developed speculatively and no tenant is lined up to take the space at present, according to Infinity.

Designed by Pozzoni Architecture, the office would frame the large expanse of lawned space at the site and take advantage of the views and green landscaping, according to Till Asset Management, which owns Infinity. 

Les Lang, director at Till Asset Management, said: “We’ve been looking to offer a single-tenancy, standalone office for some time. This application has taken into account many aspects of the space we were keen to highlight.”  

Jamie Wood, director at Pozzoni, added: “Working to create a design for a standalone building in the grounds of MIOC has been exciting.

“We needed to do the original building justice, while creating a space that a company would see all the benefits of a modern and flexible office.”
