Praxis has started work on the £3.2m refurbishment of the 40,000 sq ft Dakota House on Concord Business Park near Manchester Airport. Savills and JLL have been appointed joint letting agents.
The vacant office building will undergo significant improvements, delivered by design-and-build contractor Styles & Wood, including a full Category A refurbishment, which is due to be completed in September 2016. Quoting rents at Dakota House are £16.50/sq ft.
Concord Business Park is 1.5 miles from Manchester Airport. Occupiers on the park include Virgin Media and ASE Global, motor industry accountants.
James Evans, head of Savills Manchester, said: “We anticipate strong interest in the refurbished Dakota House, particularly as the supply of high quality office space in the area is so limited. The quality of the refurbishment, the public transport connections and the on-site amenity offer set it apart from competing locations.”
