About Barnett House, 53 Fountain Street, Manchester, M2 2an

*Pre-Let Opportunity*

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.

Viewings by arrangement with sole agent Canning O’Neill.
