JLL appointed to market Manchester office scheme

Property consultant to let 125,000 sq ft at Universal Square

Manchester, 12th March – The office agency team at JLL has been appointed to let 125,000 sq ft of remaining space at Ardwick office development, Universal Square, on behalf of Northern Way Property Company.

The office campus, located on the fringe of the city centre and within close proximity of Piccadilly Station, is comprised of five buildings and offers Grade A office accommodation with floorplates up to 16,450 sq ft available.

The refurbished site features a landscaped public square, an on-site restaurant, a gym and a car park with over 800 available spaces. Universal Square is home to over 50 businesses employing over 1,000 employees with current tenants including IT consultancy Softcat, occupational health provider Express Medicals Ltd, PR agency Mason Williams, and clothing retailer Aspecto.

Chris Mulcahy, office agency director at JLL, said: “With Manchester’s city core and outlying areas continuing to outperform out of town locations for rental growth and take-up, Universal Square’s combination of on-site amenities and its close proximity to the city centre means it is well placed to attract occupiers as the market continues to improve.”

JLL are joint agents on the scheme alongside Canning O’Neill.Mach​
