Three floors remain at Landmark after Vanguard letting 

The investment management firm has become the latest company to take space within Barings 14-floor Manchester office building, signing a decade-long lease on 14,000 sq ft. 

Vanguard’s Landmark office, located on the seventh floor, is the company’s first in Manchester. The firm also has sites in London and across Europe. 

“The office will allow access to a new talent pool, and help us serve investors across the UK and Europe,” said Sean Hagerty, head of Europe at Vanguard.

Following the Vanguard deal, there are now just three floors left available within the 180,000 sq ft Landmark, following a slew of recent lettings. 

Banks Starling and Santander have taken a floor each in recent months, while Xero set a new headline rent for Manchester at £40/sq ft when it took the top floor late last year. 

Other tenants within the building, located off St Peter’s Square, include RSM, HSBC, Allianz, Grant Thornton, JLL, and flexible workspace provider Industrious. 

Ian Mayhew, managing director of UK asset management at Barings, said: “To be the home of Vanguard’s first regional office is a huge coup and continues a very strong run of lettings at Landmark.  

“We’ve worked really hard putting all the building blocks in place to provide an exceptional workspace and building experience.  We are pleased this is being recognised by occupiers and we are continually evolving our offer to ensure that we are leading from the front.” 

CBRE and Colliers advised Barings. Vanguard was advised by JLL.
