Last phase of Sharp Project released

The Sharp Project digital media centre in East Manchester has released 30,000 sq ft of space for rent in the final phase of the 200,000 sq ft complex.

The space is due to be completed by the end of March prior to the opening of the new Metrolink tram line next door.

Sue Woodward, director of the Sharp Project, said: "This new phase which is flooded with natural light adds to the range of environments we can offer potential new tenants. Companies however big or small can take advantage of all the facilities on site including the social space, bar and lobby. What's emerging is a community for digital production specialists. We're providing the space, power and connectivity to allow all our businesses to flourish under one roof."

The not-for-profit initiative is led by urban regeneration company, New East Manchester on behalf of site owner Manchester City Council. The main contractor is Bramall Construction and the space was designed by PRP Architects.

The former Sharp warehouse is currently undergoing a £16.5m refurbishment funded by Manchester City Council, the North West Development Agency and the European Regional Development Fund.
