Proteintech to become first tenant at Transmission 

A pharmaceutical firm specialising in the development of antibodies is close to a deal that would see it open an office and laboratory within one of Allied London’s Enterprise City blocks in Manchester.

Proteintech and Allied London are understood to be in discussions over a deal for up to 11,000 sq ft, which would see the company relocate its European head office from 196 Deansgate.

Proteintech would be the first tenant to commit to space at Transmission, which is part of the redeveloped former Granada Studios site.

The firm is to occupy the sixth and seventh floors within the building, according to a building control application lodged with Manchester City Council. 

Allied London and Transmission agent OBI declined to comment. Proteintech was approached for comment. 

Transmission, which was designed by 3DReid, provides 47,000 sq ft of workspace across nine floors. 

The building is connected to the proposed Mollies Hotel and Diner and Soho House, which occupies another part of the old Granada complex. 

Once the deal completes, Proteintech will join a growing list of companies at Enterprise City.

Last year, video game developer Cloud Imperium committed to 87,000 sq ft at Manchester Goods Yard, another Enterprise City building. 

The Globe Building, which Lendlease has now handed over to Allied London, will be home to a host of media companies including WPP and Mediacom.
