Manchester is a city of limitless opportunity for businesses. With thriving industries, a rich cultural scene and the UK’s highest predicted capital growth over the next five years, this city offers occupiers a vibrant environment both for work and leisure. Strengthened by the Northern Powerhouse and forthcoming HS2 initiative.
With the largest number of ‘Creative’ SMEs, largest millennial population and very strong university research and computer science rankings, Manchester is the best placed city to benefit from future growth in the creative sector.
Manchester has the largest student population in Europe. Graduate employers like the BBC, RBS and KPMG have driven Manchester’s graduate retention rate to 71%.
The great work-life balance is proving very attractive to top talent of all ages. The average commute is just 26 minutes compared to 42 minutes in London. And the beauty of the Lake District is just an hour away.
Cost of living helps. It’s 34% more affordable than London. Transportation alone is up to 47% cheaper.
Landmark is located by St Peter’s Square, Manchester’s premier business district. St Peter’s Square has rapidly become a hub for the city. Its huge transformation has seen the expansion of the Metrolink, refurbishment of historical buildings, investment in the creation of new assets, and development of a new public realm, all helping to create a world-class square. Landmark is the final piece of Manchester City Council’s vision for the Civic Quarter.
Investment in the civic buildings surrounding the Square, including refurbishment of the Town Hall and Central Library.
Investment in the opening of the new St Peter’s Square Metrolink platform in Feb 2017, which was an integral part of TfGM’s Second City Crossing.
Investment by Deka Immobilien and Deutsche Asset Management with the purchases of One St Peter’s Square and Two St Peter’s Square, respectively.
Investment has been made in a new high-quality expansive piece of public realm in the Square, with the help of German landscape architects Latz + Partner.
“The Council has set out a vision of St Peter’s Square as a world-class public space at the heart of our thriving Civic Quarter, supporting jobs and investment. Landmark will make a significant contribution to this important district. Barings’ and Castlebrooke’S investment to speculatively develop 180,000 sq ft of prime office space here demonstrates clear confidence in, and commitment to, Manchester and we are supportive of their aims to attract major occupiers to their scheme.”
Sir Richard Leese
Leader of Manchester City Council
