MAG Developments, the commercial property arm of Manchester Airports Group, has completed 8,000 sq ft of lettings at its Voyager and 4M office buildings at Manchester Airport.
National Grid and Scottish Power Transmisson have leased 5,974 sq ft at Voyager to accommodate staff working on a £1bn joint venture energy project, a sub-sea cable link from Scotland south to England and Wales. The 420 km link will help meet the Government's 2020 renewable targets and runs from Hunterston in Ayrshire to a landing point on the Wirral peninsula.
The airport location was selected due to its transport links that place it within easy reach of the cable route areas; and for the convenience of overseas workers of main contractors, Siemens and Prysmian.
MAG Developments has also completed the letting of 1,885 sq ft to ground handling services provider, Swissport UK, at Voyager. Aircraft Repair & Maintenance Engineering has taken 316 sq ft in the neighbouring 82,500 sq ft office building, 4M.
CBRE and WHR are the retained letting agents on Voyager and 4M is jointly marketed by CBRE and DTZ.
