Does the property industry overlook those businesses seeking smaller spaces? In some places, it might, and the industry press headlines certainly tend to focus on large deals. But it’s our belief that as much attention should be paid to occupiers taking smaller spaces – they’re every bit as important to the business ecosystem. There are some landlords and developers who feel the same way, including Allied London, owner and developer of No.1 Spinningfields.
The adjective used at No. 1 Spinningfields is ‘world-class’. That’s not a term to throw around lightly. But Allied London is committed to creating the ultimate business environment with No.1 Spinningfields, a place where details mean everything and there’s no compromise on quality.
No. 1 Spinningfields is already set to be home to major professional services names PwC, Squire Patton Boggs and Browne Jacobson, and will be the best in class; the last piece of Grade A corporate office space in Manchester’s most prestigious and sought-after business address.
At No.1 Spinningfields, exceptional doesn’t mean exclusive, however; the Level 1 suites are boutique spaces that open the doors to those still looking for great service, just smaller square footage.
On site-printing, copying, meeting facilities and concierge services will ensure life at No. 1 is effortless. These smaller suites are tailored for private equity firms, boutique corporate finance advisers, wealth management firms, private banks and boutique professional service firms.
They’re equally suited to London-based or international operators who require a small Manchester presence, and need a guarantee of the highest quality and comfort.
No. 1 offers discretion and privacy within a modern setting, with access to flexible breakout space and kitchen facilities. With a rooftop restaurant and bar operated by D&D Conran on board as well as an M&S Foodhall committed – the mission has been to go above and beyond the ordinary.
So what makes this so special? Grade A supply is, as every agent in town will tell you, phenomenally tight in Manchester. No. 1 presents an opportunity for smaller businesses who want to work in a design-led but professional and collaborative environment, where the world-class come to work.
No. 1’s central and uber-accessible location gives occupiers the highest quality offices – small but beautiful – at the heart of a thriving business and leisure ecosystem with all the amenities you need close by. What’s not to like about that?
