M2 moves to Ancoats Urban Village

Simon Donohue

M2 Global Investments has signed a five year lease for a Victorian building offering 3,952 sq ft of office space in Manchester's Ancoats Urban Village.

Spanning three floors, the Blossom Street building is owned by the Homes & Communities Agency.

The company supplies direct sales and marketing services.

The HCA says it expects further companies in the same sector to move into Ancoats.

Deborah McLaughlin, executive director for the HCA in the north west, said: "This lease for M2 is great news and forms part of the overall Ancoats Development strategy to occupy and improve the area.

"This exciting area has just seen the Halle orchestra take up St. Peter's church as rehearsal space and the New Islington Free School is scheduled for opening in September.

"There's also the new convenience store, cycle café and since Christmas work has restarted at Royal Mills and Sarah Point to create brand new homes."

M2 director Matthew Bambroffe said: "The property has lots of original features, great views which overlook the new cutting room public square and is close by to the marina.

"The offices will be perfect for M2 and we plan to rename the building as 'The Cotton House'."
