Debbie Meredith, transactions and asset management, OBI Property said: “It is great to welcome National Housing Federation and Healthier Futures to Lancaster Buildings. Following the purchase of the building last year by BCL Legal, and OBI Property’s recent remodelling of the reception and communal areas, Lancaster Buildings has been a very popular choice with occupiers.”

Lallita Paul, head of facilities management, National Housing Federation said: “Lancaster Buildings is a great location for our Manchester office. Its central location means it easy for our staff and visiting members to get to and the quality of the space is fantastic.”
Healthier Futures is a social enterprise whose mission is to help people live longer, happier, healthier lives and has moved from Dale House, Dale Street to Lancaster Buildings. Healthier Futures CIC was represented by Andrew Cooke at Savills.
