A Closer Look: Office Space in Portland Tower
Formerly known as St Andrew’s House, Portland Tower is a landmark 22-storey office tower in central Manchester that dates back to the early 1960s.
Among the tallest buildings in the city, the 262 ft structure was one of the first high-rise properties to be built in the UK during the 1960s and 1970s and was also one of the tallest upon completion, although it is now overshadowed in height by other Manchester skyscrapers such as Beetham Tower and CIS Tower, standing at 554 ft and 387 ft respectively.
While it has always been a recognisable part of the Manchester skyline, Portland Tower’s landmark status was given a boost in 2002 when the entire west wall of the building was painted bright yellow and adorned with the 2002 Manchester Commonwealth Games logo, as part of a PR exercise for the Games.
The yellow wall remains to this day, but the rest of the tower has undergone various changes to bring it up to modern standards, including extensive refurbishment work as part of Manchester’s major regeneration initiative.
Inside, the business centre provides contemporary serviced office space across the eleventh and twelfth floors, along with a new reception area staffed by an on-site management team.
The office space provides excellent views across the city and clients benefit from flexible office terms, meeting rooms, state of the art telecoms including Wi-Fi internet access and an on-site management team who are on hand to help with day-to-day requirements.
