Richard Lace, in the transactions and asset management team at OBI Property, said: “The coming year shows no signs of slowing down, we’ve already converted the Squire Patton Boggs deal, recently been instructed on 22-24 Fountain Street totalling 22,150 sq ft and our workplace and building consultancy departments are working on some great schemes.”

When the results for Salford Quays, South Manchester and Old Trafford were added to the city centre total, Canning O’Neill topped the table with 584,000 sq ft of space let. CBRE was second with 561,448 sq ft and Edwards & Co third with 487,118 sq ft.
