Knight Frank on the move

Knight Frank's 28 staff in Manchester will relocate from Lancaster Buildings on Deansgate to IVG's No1 Marsden Street this week.

The surveyor has taken 3,300 sq ft on the top floor of No.1 Marsden Street on a ten-year lease. Knight Frank will be in occupation from next Monday 25 June.

The move reinforces the property make-up of the tenants in the building. Knight Frank will join rivals DTZ, Gerald Eve and Colliers International as well as developer-investor Hurstwood, fund manager Brooks MacDonald and Bank of Ireland UK.

There are now 8,000 sq ft remaining to let at 1 Marsden Street on the first and eighth floors out of 68,000 sq ft.

David Porter, head of Knight Frank Manchester office, said: "The decision to relocate follows the consolidation of our Manchester and Liverpool offices in July last year. This significant change allowed us to conduct a full strategic review of our services and in line with this we took the decision to relocate to No 1 Marsden Street, which will prove to be a more efficient working space in the city centre.

"We are extremely excited about the move, which will give us a fantastic platform to showcase our strengthened regional offering and 'new look' team to the North West property sector."

Knight Frank moved from 55 King Street to Lancaster Buildings, above Barton Arcade, owned by Maple Grove Developments in 2009.
