This commanding period property on the city’s busy Oxford Street is Grade II Listed and dates back to 1912, when it was originally built as the headquarters of the Calico Printers Association.
This property is widely regarded as one of the finest period properties in the city, with its handsome Portland stone frontage on Oxford Street and an abundance of classical period features including original marble floors, plastered ceilings and detailed staircases – all without sacrificing the facilities you would expect from a modern office. Each floor has air conditioning and raised-access flooring, achieved through a sympathetic and innovative refurbishment scheme.
The office accommodation is arranged over nine floors with suites ranging in size from 240 to 70,000 sq ft. The large floor plates available in this building are difficult to find in Manchester city centre, particularly in period properties. This provides you with an extensive range of space plan options for your office, resulting in increased spatial efficiency and reduced square footage costs.
The main entrance off Oxford Street also features an impressive marble reception area with a sweeping staircase that leads up to a mezzanine floor with a suite of meeting rooms for hire, many of which have original wood panelling and other period details. It is this original character and quality of the building that has made this building a popular office location for a wide range of professional firms.
Oxford Street itself offers an array of lunchtime and evening eateries, as well as bars, newsagents, and a selection of supermarkets and coffee shops. The selection of quality retailers on the ground floor of the building itself includes a florist, coffee shops, restaurants and hairdressers.
