Leading travel app company, mxData have signed a 5 year lease on 7,000 sq ft at Atlantic House on Atlas Business Park located adjacent to Manchester Airport in South Manchester. mxData will relocate from Fulshaw Park in Alderley Edge. Owned by clients of AXA Real Estate, Atlas Business Park comprises over 225,000 sq ft Grade ‘A’ office space and is home to occupiers including Cable & Wireless, Civil Aviation Authority, Coffey International and Simon Carves.
Canning O’Neill represented mxData in their acquisition of their new office space.
Speaking about the letting, Dave Thomas, Chief Operating Officer at mxData said: “In the past 12 months our business has more than doubled its consumer app revenues with the likes of the award winning London Tube, New York Subway, Paris Metro and Shanghai Metro maps, generating in excess of 300 million sessions and six million downloads annually. We have consolidated our position as the world’s number one publisher of public transport apps.
“The new location will provide better commuter access for employees and moves the company closer to Manchester’s talent pool. In addition we can continue to further expand our city metro apps in facilities which better meet the needs of the cutting edge growth business that we are today.”
Mark Canning of Canning O’Neill, which represented mxData, said: “Despite working to extremely tight timescales, the opportunity to relocate to Atlantic House was too good to miss.
“Atlantic House provides mxData with the facilities, location and space which will support the business’ growth, and as Atlas is located within the Airport Business Zone, my client can take full advantage of the added benefits including Business Rates relief.”
