Jaguar Land Rover will open a software, IT, and engineering centre at Bruntwood’s 12-storey Neo building in Manchester, after it agreed to take 9,500 sq ft over two floors.
JLR has signed for the tenth and 11th floors, with the tenth housing the car manufacturer’s engineering team and the IT department taking the 11th.
The deal means the building on the corner of Portland Street and Charlotte Street, already home to other occupiers including Hilson Moran and Microsoft, is now fully let.
Microsoft has around 100 staff based over 4,500 sq ft on the seventh floor, and moved into Neo last summer.
The 52,000 sq ft building was launched in March 2017 following an £8m of the building, formerly named Bank House, by the developer.
Bruntwood’s Bradley Topps said: “We are thrilled to welcome Jaguar Land Rover to Neo. As an innovative technology business with high aspirations for growth they are perfectly suited to a place, purposely-designed to inspire creative thinking and collaborative working.”
