Orchard Street plots 4 Hardman Square overhaul 

The Spinningfields building will be “fully transformed” following the departure of its anchor tenants, according to plans lodged with Manchester City Council. 

4 Hardman Square, designed by Foster & Partners and completed in 2006, was previously occupied by Grant Thornton and HSBC.

However, both companies have now relocated their Manchester offices to Barings’ Landmark on Oxford Road, prompting Orchard Street Investment Management to modernise the building. 

All 55,000 sq ft of offices at 4 Hardman Square will be revamped, while an additional 4,000 sq ft of workspace and an outdoor terrace will be created on the building’s roof. 

The scheme “seeks to fully transform the building internally and externally into a modern Grade A office complex that will provide significant economic benefits and will reinvigorate this area as part of the wider masterplan,” according to a planning statement by Avison Young. 

As well as new and refurbished office space, the project will deliver amenities including a gym, meetings rooms and changing facilities. 

Spratley & Partners Architects is advising Orchard Street on the proposals for 4 Hardman Street. 

Orchard Street bought the property for £31m in 2014.
