LaSalle agrees 25,000 sq ft of lettings at Hexagon

Four tenants have expanded by a total of 25,000 sq ft within vertical science park Hexagon Tower in Blackley, North Manchester.

Global quality solutions provider Intertek has taken 10,500 sq ft to test bio-medical products, while chemicals developer Lubrizol has extended by 2,500 sq ft.

Lonza, a global supplier to the pharma, biotech and specialty ingredients markets, expanded by an extra 2,275 sq ft for new offices and a hair care centre, with an additional 5,000 sq ft under offer subject to contract.

Chemical company SmartKem, which manufactures semiconductors for applications including flexible digital displays and electronics, has expanded by 5,000 sq ft.

Hexagon Tower was originally built in the 1970s and first occupied by Imperial Chemical Industries before being used by AstraZeneca and Avecia, prior to becoming a science park with its purchase by La Salle Investment Management in 2008. Since the acquisition LaSalle has invested £2m in modernising the facility.

The building is part of the national Business Environments for Science and Technology Network, the largest portfolio of privately owned science parks in the UK.
