About The Boardwalk, Little Peter Street, Castlefield, M15 4ps

Character offices to rent in Knott Mill, Castlefield 

New to the market following 5 years of full occupancy, we now have office space to rent in one of Manchester’s most iconic buildings – The Boardwalk – in the middle of Knott Mill in Castlefield.

Historcially a school but in the 1980s / 1990s The Boardwalk gained fame as a music venue and was central to the emerging ‘Madchester’ music scene for bands such as James, The Happy Mondays, New Order and was the location of Oasis’ first ever gig.

Following the closure the current owners embarked upon a comprehensive but sympathetic refurbishment and remodelling. It now provides stunning offices to rent which includes exposed brickwork and steel beams but no sticky floors.

Local amenities are plentiful too with ample retail, bar and leisure offerings around Knott Mill including ManCoCo Coffee, Atlas, Lakeland Grocers, Home theatre, Knott Bar, Sainsburys, Junkyard Golf, Gasworks, and Pizza Express to name a few.  It is also then just a short walk along Deansgate in to the rest of the city centre.

Deansgate station is a two minute walk from the office with the Deansgate / Castlefield Metrolink station just opposite.  There are also numerous bus services stopping on Chester Road, Whitworth Street or City Road so transport links are excellent.  Car parking is available nearby privately through Q Park at First Street or the NCP at Great Northern.

The lower ground floor office of  2,003 sq ft is available and benefits from a high quality existing fit-out to provide a large open plan general office together with a private office and boardroom formed in glazed partitioning. The suite has it’s own kitchen and is fully network cabled. A 1st floor office of 2,711 sq ft has also just become available.

This is a stunning building to work in and a fantastic location on the fringe of the city centre so viewing is highly recommended.
