About St James’, Oxford Street, Manchester, M1 6eg

The office you choose says a lot about your business, and the St James’ offices in Manchester says more than most. This iconic Grade II-listed building sits in a commanding location overlooking Manchester’s busy Oxford Street and dates back to 1912.

Originally the headquarters of the Calico Printers Association, it is widely considered to be one of the finest period properties in the city, with a grand Portland stone frontage that is over 300ft long.

A period property it may be, but the facilities at St James’ are contemporary in every way.  The current owner acquired the property in 2003 and has since invested substantially in the fabric of the building, sensitively restoring its best period features, including the opulent marble reception hall and sweeping entrance staircase.

The office space available to rent ranges from suites of c. 1,000 sq ft up to single floors of 19,000 sq ft.  Specification for the offices to rent includes raised floors and air-conditioning (in part). The accommodation has been fully refurbished and the specification includes a mix of carpet tiles  and original parquet flooring, exposed ceilings & services, air conditioning and double glazing.

The 9th Floor offers one of the largest available single floors in Manchester City Centre, refurbished in a very contemporary style and benefiting from its’ own exclusive roof terrace.

Transport-wise, St James’ sits at one end of the well-served Oxford Road bus route. The main commuter railway station of Manchester Oxford Road, offering services across the Northwest, is just minutes away with Manchester Piccadilly and Deansgate railway stations a further 10 minute walk. St Peter’s Square and Deansgate-Castlefield Metrolink stops provide direct access to the frequent Altrincham, Chorlton and Eccles services as well as the wider Metrolink network. Both are within a 5-10 minute walk.

Nearby there is an array of supermarkets, shops and lunchtime and evening eateries, including the upmarket sandwich retailer Philpotts, a Tesco Express, Pizza Express and a Café Nero.
