Salford University at Media City UK

Peel targets creative industries with The Greenhouse

Peel Media, developer of Media City UK, has submitted plans to convert a three storey building next to the Pie Factory into a range of office suites suitable for small creative companies in Salford Quays.

The development will be known as The Greenhouse and is adjacent to the Pie Factory and the new campus for the University of Salford.

The 32,000 sq ft building has been used as the site office for Bovis Lend Lease, housing 2,000 personnel during the construction of phase one of Media City UK.

Stephen Wild, managing director of real estate for Peel Media, said: "The Greenhouse will provide self contained office suites spread over three floors. It is located less than a minute's walk from the new tram terminus at the heart of Media City UK and complements the media hub we've created at The Pie Factory. It is an ideal solution for small companies looking for a cost effective and flexible way to be part of the Media City UK environment."

Architects Stephenson Bell designed the plans for the exterior and interior of The Greenhouse and work will commence once planning permission has been approved.

Formerly a food production line, The Pie Factory opened for business in 2007 and accommodates three sound stages ranging from 3,000 sq ft to 6,800 sq ft and 26 companies from casting to camera hire, design to information technology.

  • Peel Media said full details of leasing and cost options will be released shortly, but interested companies can now register their interest by visiting the Media City website
