Crain Communications Inc, one of the largest privately-owned publishers in the US have recently decided to close their Manchester operation.

OBI Property were appointed by Crains in a tenant advisory capacity; to assist in mitigating their on-going lease liability in the office in City Tower, Piccadilly.  Will Lewis of OBI commented “it is unfortunate that the office had to be closed, but we are very pleased to have negotiated a successful surrender package with the landlord which has enabled Crains to exit Manchester in a clean and cost effective manner”.

Don Eagle, Corporate Facilities Director of Crains added “OBI provided very helpful strategic advice and were very professional in their dealings.  Crain will certainly look to OBI for representation in the future, when an opportunity arises.”
