Go-ahead for The Greenhouse at MediaCityUK
MediaCityUK developer Peel Media has received planning permission to proceed with The Greenhouse, a new initiative at its acclaimed Salford Quays site, which will see a three storey building converted into 32,000 sq ft of flexible office space for small businesses.
The property was formerly used as offices for building construction and management firm Bovis Lend Lease, during construction of phase one of MediaCityUK (pictured), and housed 2,000 of the company’s staff.
Now, the building will be converted into serviced office style suites, offering space for companies of up to 12 employees each, with flexible lease terms of one month or longer.
Located next to MediaCityUK’s Pie Factory – a former food production warehouse which is now home to the University of Salford and ITV – The Greenhouse has been designed by architects Stephenson Bell and is specifically aimed at small companies in the creative or media industries.
As previously reported on our blog, Stephen Wild, managing director of real estate for Peel Media, commented:
“It is located less than a minute’s walk from the new tram terminus at the heart of MediaCityUK and complements the media hub we’ve created at The Pie Factory. It is an ideal solution for small companies looking for a cost effective and flexible way to be part of the MediaCityUK environment.”
This flexible approach to workspace is at the very heart of the serviced office industry, and thousands of business centres throughout the UK offer workable agreements for SMEs that give them the perfect springboard for future success.
Many business centres become hubs for trade and commerce, going beyond the traditional four walls of office space and offering stimulating work environments, with business-friendly extras from networking events to campus-style offices, and essentials such as meeting rooms.
