Urban Splash ‘funky’ offices set for summer completion
Urban Splash has released artist’s impressions of its latest office development, the 30,000 sq ft conversion of Stubbs Mill in New Islington, which is due to open later this year.
In marketing materials Urban Splash describes the scheme as “funky office space”.
Next to the Ashton Canal, Stubbs Mill was previously used for the making and assembly of machinery for the cotton warehouses in New Islington and Ancoats and has been vacant for some time.
The building will provide flexible office units of between 2,500 sq ft up to a total of 22,500 sq ft over three floors.
The building was acquired by Urban Splash in 2003. In 2008 plans were announced for a residential and commercial development, worked up by Hacienda designer Ben Kelly. However the scheme stalled during the recession.
Bilfinger GVA and Edwards & Co are the agents. Artez Construction is the contractor.
