Office Space in Manchester to Give Rise to ΓÇÿAirport CityΓÇÖ
The next 15 years could see the rise of ΓÇÿAirport City ManchesterΓÇÖ if plans to develop 5 million square feet of office space go ahead on the 150 acre site.
A new video released by the Manchester Airports Group was recently aired at MIPIM, the international real estate show, by Chief Executive, Charlie Cornish.
ΓÇ£Undoubtedly, the connectivity Manchester Airport brings to the region positively drives its economic and social prosperity,ΓÇ¥ said Mr Cornish.
ΓÇ£Airport City is a once in a lifetime opportunity to expand on this, creating an international business destination linked to the global connectivity of the NorthΓÇÖs major international airport and driven by the regionΓÇÖs global offer in terms of academic, scientific and technological credentials, supported by its communications and transport infrastructure.
ΓÇ£Airport City is one of the most important projects for the economy of the UK and will elevate Manchester on an international scale enabling it to compete with other European airport cities like Amsterdam, Barcelona and Frankfurt.ΓÇ¥
By 2027, the Manchester Airports Group hopes to see a total of 5 million sq.ft. office space in Manchester, connected to the nearby airport by the new Metrolink line currently under development and in close proximity to the M56.
The office space would be for general use, manufacturing, retail and leisure, hotels and logistics and warehousing, transforming the local area into a varied business park; however, the Group has declared intentions to attract business of all types to the area.
Along with the multifunctional office space, ΓÇÿAirport City ManchesterΓÇÖ would include events space, bars and restaurants, retail outlets and coffee shops, creating what the Group is referring to as ΓÇÿa conventional city centreΓÇÖ with ΓÇÿworld-class facilitiesΓÇÖ by the international airport.
