Former factory in Salford Quays to be transformed into office complex
A former Colgate Palmolive factory in Salford Quays is due to undergo a major ┬ú25m transformation to become the ‘Soapworks’ – a new complex with office space, retail and leisure space and homes.
The development is expected to bring 2,000 jobs to the region, subject to the acceptance of planning permission.
Carlyle Group and Abstract Nikal have teamed up to joint-manage the venture. According to the Manchester Evening News, Nick Payne of Manchester-based Nikal said:
“We have designed a scheme that will cater for a broad range of tenant requirements, but will specifically target those occupiers who want to occupy an iconic building that offers high-quality space at an affordable price.”
Further plans have also been submitted which could see an extension to the original site, bringing a further 3,000 additional jobs and more office space to the region.
