San Carlo takes space at Arkwright House 

The restaurant group has signed a 10-year lease on 6,500 sq ft at PGIM’s Manchester office building. 

San Carlo will relocate 50 staff from Acresfield in St Annes Square to its new Manchester head office on Arkwright House’s third floor. 

The company joins occupiers including flexible workspace provider Orega, and used car dealership Cazoo in the building, among others. 

Colliers and Avison Young acted for PGIM. Cedar Dean acted for San Carlo.

“This move to Arkwright House is a big next step for the restaurant group’s ever-growing business, ” said Dan Margolis, senior surveyor at Colliers. 

“High-quality Grade A office space continues to be a highly attractive asset for occupiers in Manchester city centre, particularly those wanting to encourage their employees to return to an office environment.” 

Marcello Distefano, managing director of San Carlo said Arkwright House is the “perfect fit” for the company. 

“I couldn’t be prouder of the San Carlo team; we may have grown to be the UK’s largest independent family-owned restaurant group with restaurants worldwide, but our team are like part of the family and It’s important to us that we all feel at home.” 

Completed in 1937, Arkwright House is a grade two-listed building, formally the headquarters of the English Sewing Cotton Company.

TBH I didn’t even know Manchester had buildings like this.
