TCS lets space at Carvers Warehouse

Michael Hunt

Leeds-based developer Town Centre Securities has let the penultimate floor of the Grade II-listed Carvers Warehouse in Manchester to footwear manufacturer FHSA.

The company has taken 1,500 sq ft of space on a five year lease for an undisclosed sum.

Originally built in 1806, Carvers Warehouse was re-launched to the market as an office location in May 2008. Other tenants include Marketing Manchester, G-Star Raw and The Harris Partnership.

The Carvers Warehouse office building is within the £250m Piccadilly Basin development in Manchester.

Frank Highton, director at FHSA, said: "There were a number of key factors in our decision to locate to Carvers Warehouse, including the building's historic nature and its proximity to Piccadilly, as well as the high-quality occupiers already on site.

"Quite simply, there was no alternative choice of office accommodation that will enable us to further strengthen our reputation in the marketplace."

Carvers Warehouse is part of approximately 400,000 sq ft of office accommodation in a variety of new and historic buildings at a 12.8-acre site.

The last remaining space now available at Carvers Warehouse is 2,300 sq ft on the fourth floor, as well as two small suites on the first floor ranging from 450-550 sq ft.

Lambert Smith Hampton and Cushman & Wakefield are joint agents on the building. Lambert Smith Hampton said quoting rents for Carvers Warehouse are £17/sq ft exclusive.

FHSA also has an office in Wigan.
