Canning O’Neill are delighted to announce the appointment by MediaCityUK to work alongside OBI and CBRE to market its vacant workspace across the leading creative, tech and digital destination in Salford, Greater Manchester.

MediaCityUK currently has one million square feet of workspace within its property portfolio, with Canning O’Neill taking joint responsibility for leasing in Blue, White, Tomorrow, The Greenhouse and the Digital World Centre, on which they have been appointed since it was built.

Announcing the instruction, Chris Reay, MediaCityUK Property Director said: “Canning O’Neill’s strong track record working with Peel on the Digital World Centre since 2012, coupled with their strong performance over many years, and in-depth knowledge of the Salford Quays and MediaCityUK’s office market made it a natural progression to take on these additional assets and support the delivery of our vision for MediaCityUK for its next decade of evolution.”

The appointment has been made as MediaCityUK enters the next phase of its expansion plans which will see it double in size over the next 10 years and realise its ambitions to bring together its technological capability, connectivity and sustainable credentials to create a next generation smart city for the creatives, techies and content producers of the future.

Mark Canning, Director at Canning O’Neill, continued: “MediaCityUK is a major player in the office market. Due to high demand, the availability of space in the wider area is in decline and MediaCityUK is uniquely placed to ensure that quality office space is available to fuel future growth.”

“MediaCityUK is a global brand and we are delighted to join the team at a time when the commercial property offering is poised to go to the next level as MediaCityUK embarks on its expansion plans.”
