About Barnett House, 53 Fountain Street, Manchester, M2 2an
A very rare opportunity in Manchester City Centre for a self-contained office building of 30,096 sq ft. Barnett House sits right in the heart of the prime core on Fountain Street and was run as a serviced office centre for c. 20 years before becoming vacant in 2021.
Plans are currently being drawn up for a comprehensive refurbishment with the space to be re-launched as a mult-let office building. However, there remains an opportunity currently for an occupier to take a pre-let on the full building and tailor a refurbishment to suit.
The ground floor extends to 4,832 sq ft with good profile along Fountain Street. There are eight upper floors all of 3,158 sq ft in a simple rectangular layout with 2 columns. The space could be easily subdivided off a central corridor if required. A basement provides a small amount of parking but also allows an opportunity for increased cycle provision and showers. At first floor level, there may be scope for a roof terrace given the flat roof of the ground floor.
Barnett House would suit a return to service office / co-working use, an education provider (STP), or self-contained office use. A sole occupier would be granted naming rights.
