Orchard Street Investment Management, is nearing completion of a comprehensive refurbishment of Bauhaus, its prime Grade A office building totalling 50,000 sqft on Quay Street in Manchester City Centre.
Bauhaus benefits from a well-connected and established city centre location, immediately opposite Manchester’s Spinningfields financial district and adjacent to the St John’s Quarter, which has attracted £1 billion of investment.
Facilities and services that have been incorporated into the relaunched nine-storey building include a full tenant concierge service, an exclusive business lounge, co-working spaces, a new cycling and shower hub, 29 secure basement parking spaces and electric vehicle charging points.
Each self-contained open plan floor incorporates part exposed ceilings, LED lighting, new WCs and full height glazing. The communal areas and the building’s exterior have also undergone major enhancements to provide Bauhaus with a new contemporary look.
Sarah O’Connell, Asset Manager at Orchard Street Investment Management, said: “This significant refurbishment project has provided us with an excellent opportunity to deliver prime office accommodation of considerable scale, in a superb location. We have created a unique style of offices and each floor of 6,000 sq ft provides the flexibility to allow a broad range of occupiers to create their own bespoke workspace environment.
Our emphasis has been to ensure that the refurbishment carried out has been completed with an entirely occupier-led focus. The newly restored office scheme will appeal to the increasingly diverse range of businesses expanding their presence in the city, particularly those companies looking to create offices which help attract and retain the best talent. ”
