Following its recent off market acquisition of One New York Street in Manchester city centre, Royal London Asset Management (RLAM) has appointed a new project team to relaunch the Grade ‘A’ building in the city centre.

Joint commercial property agents, Canning O’Neill and CBRE, together with asset manager, Howlings Hodgson, have been selected to advise RLAM on new plans for the 15-floor office building located in the city’s first prime commercial thoroughfare, and market the remaining 15,000 sq ft high quality accommodation.

Constructed in 2007, the BREAM ‘Excellent’ rated building is undergoing comprehensive works to remodel and refurbish the reception and communal areas. With 12 upper floors, each consisting 9,000 sq ft of open plan and flexible accommodation, the full-height glazed windows offer impressive views of the city skyline. The building already provides 24/7 secure access, bicycle storage and shower rooms. 

Located at the corner of the established Mosely Street, multi-let One New York Street is occupied by a range of businesses, including Johnson Controls, Marks & Clerk and Mills & Reeve. Space is available on the 3rd, 9th and 11th floors, at quoting rentals ranging from £25.00 to £34.00 per sq ft.

James Dickinson, director at Canning O’Neill, commented on the new appointment: “One New York Street has a host of excellent amenities on its doorstep including The Alchemist, Grill on New York Street, Marks & Spencers and a number of Health & Fitness clubs. Manchester’s main Metrolink and bus stations are within close proximity to the office building, with Piccadilly train station only a few minutes’ walk away.

The building itself provides modern, spacious and flexible space that can be adapted to suit the requirements of its aspirational tenants and with Royal London’s investment and commitment to the building, we anticipate a high level of interest in the remaining space.”
