Manchester-based full-service commercial law firm, HRC Law, has advised on the latest lease in growing creative space Tanzaro House, as popular fitness and lifestyle brand Gym King prepares to move in.
Tanzaro House, owned by property investment and development business Charlton Manor Estates Limited, is a dynamic space for fashion brands overlooking Ardwick Green in Manchester. The space has built a solid reputation within the industry as a hub in the North comprising a mix of office, studio and showroom spaces. It’s currently home to over 15 brands, agencies and distributors, including Just Consultancies, Two Squared Agency and The Couture Club, with their newest neighbours, Gym King, taking a 2,000 square foot unit.
The transaction was led by commercial property partner at HRC Law, Helen Marsh, who worked alongside Matt Illingworth of Hynes Illingworth, the appointed letting agent, to secure the lease.
Helen commented: “Charlton Manor Estates and their tenants are a prime example of how innovative thinking is shaping the future of fashion. The multi-purpose building provides a flexible space for businesses to grow and be part of a community – and fashion brands are queuing up to join the Tanzaro house community.”
Just three years since launch, Gym King has fast become one of the UK’s popular urban wear brands, stocked in the likes of ASOS, JD Sport and Footasylum. The business’ new space in Tanzaro House signals the brand’s expansion as they take up office and showroom space.
Tanzaro House is currently at full capacity, with a waiting list of retailers and wholesalers wanting to move in. The firm’s other properties are also situated on Ardwick Green and include The Ardwick Grove, Milford House and Charlton House.
Simon Kilham, Charlton Manor Estates, commented: “Our properties tend to attract and cater best to tenants in the artistic and creative sectors. It’s crucial for us to work with advisors that understand our industry and our tenants’ sectors. It was clear that Helen and the team at HRC Law could offer valuable insight which offered a seamless transaction for all parties. We’d like to extend our thanks to the team and a warm welcome to Gym King who we’re confident are going to be very happy in their new home.”
