Following the recent launch of the new XYZ building at Spinningfields by Allied London, they are delighted to announce the appointment of Will Lewis of OBI Property as the lead leasing consultant.
Will Lewis has been acting on behalf of Allied London since 2009, leasing No. 1 The Avenue and parts of 3 Hardman Street. OBI Property went on to be instrumental in leasing No 1 Hardman Street to MediaCom and leased the entire commercial content of Tower 12, one of the most successful examples building refurbishment in Manchester.
Mike Ingall, CEO of Allied London, commented; “OBI Property, under Will Lewis, have understood our requirements and principles at Spinningfields now for several years and gave us fantastic support and initiative in the dark years, including 2009, which was actually our most successful leasing year and the speed at which we leased Tower 12 and also No 1 The Avenue was significant for Allied London and OBI Property’s involvement was a key contributor to this success.
XYZ is a pioneering development and unique in Manchester and the UK. It has been carefully researched and crafted over several years. OBI Property understand the product and I am sure will add significant value to this project in finding appropriate occupiers who will share and benefit from our vision XYZ.”
Will Lewis of OBI Property commented; “It’s new, it’s exciting and something that will become a global brand. The world is evolving and XYZ supports change and provides a platform for forward thinking businesses from any sector to grow. It has been great to work with a leading developer that wants to break new ground – we are not leasing an office building here, XYZ is a community for serious business and for fun, and we are targeting occupiers that are embracing a new working culture and seeking much more than the conventional office environment.”
Chris Reay, Estate Management & Commercial Lettings Director of Spinningfields for Allied London, commented; “XYZ is based on 3 key principles; structure, culture and dynamic. The XYZ building is innovative and will meet the requirements of contemporary working. Spinningfields is the premiere business district in Manchester and XYZ is a pioneering development for Allied London in Spinningfields. OBI understand the XYZ concept and have a proven track record of lettings on Spinningfields. We look forward to working with Will Lewis and his team in the successful leasing of the XYZ building.”
