Over 21,000 sq ft of commercial space leased at prominent Manchester office

A heritage commercial office complex by Manchester Airport has agreed leases for a total floor space of 21,076 sq ft to several new tenants and significant renewals.

Manchester International Office Centre – which has recently undergone a phased refurbishment, including creating its first decarbonised wing – has agreed seven new tenant contracts and renewed or increased footprints for five current tenants. 

Liam MacCarthy, director at Till AM, investment manager of Manchester International Office Centre, said: “We’re very pleased that several big tenants continue to see MIOC as their home. Alongside these, we welcome some exciting businesses into the building including: Scitech – a pharmaceutical and qualification consultancy; Air Camo – specialist aviation engineers and managers; Fast Logistics Cargo; Maltacourt Global Logistics and its sister company Norman Global Logistics; and logistics and freight forwarding company, Asia Freight Solutions.

“This raft of new leases and renewals demonstrates that our ongoing commitment to improving the energy efficiency of the building, while creating a space that actively supports a productive business environment, is working for our tenants. So many of them are expanding their footprint, such as Simon Carves by an additional 1500 sq ft. This illustrates that the office is still an essential part of creating an efficient and productive business.”

Big step

Simon Howard, business infrastructure director at Scitech said: “This is our first office in the North of England – so a big step for our business. We chose MIOC or several reasons, the ability for us to more extensively support current and future clients based in the North of England and Scotland, its location to key infrastructure such as the airport and excellent transport links.

“The building itself offers us a brand-new decarbonised space, great facilities and lots of breakout and outside space to enjoy. This new office will allow us to expand to support the growing number of companies operating within pharmaceutical, life science, high value manufacturing, research, emerging technologies and highly regulated industries.”

Tenant renewals include: Franke, Simon Carves, Sunclass Airlines, supply chain experts  PSA BDP and import and export service, Strong and Herd.

Bucking the trend

Ed Keany, director at Edwards and Co., said: “It’s always refreshing to be involved with a scheme that bucks the trend in regards to securing new leases and a constant flow of enquiries.

“The quality of the product is exceptional, without the need for gimmicks or spin. Tenants are always pleasantly surprised by the sheer volume of communal space and amenity – we are very quick to recommend this building to our clients.”

Situated at a prominent position at the junction of Styal Road on the A555 with easy connections to Manchester Airport, the M56, Metrolink and Heald Green train station.

The building was designed by Cruickshank and Seaward in 1953 and offers a level communal space that is never seen in modern buildings. Alongside excellent facilities, MIOC has an active business community, multiple EV charging spaces, social events throughout the year, gym, café and large communal garden for all tenants.
