The Mayfield Partnership has announced plans for a flagship office building to be built as part of our first phase of the transformational £1bn Mayfield development in Manchester city centre.
A planning application is to be submitted in the autumn for a 12-storey office building comprising approximately 220,000 sq ft of Grade A workspace on Mayfield’s Baring Street Campus.
Designed by architects Morris + Company, the building will offer stunning terraced views of Mayfield Park, a managed public park surrounding the River Medlock, which will be at the heart of our new neighbourhood at Mayfield. The building’s ground floor will provide impressive double height space for use as an exhibition space or for community events.
Earlier this summer The Mayfield Partnership consulted with the public on other elements of the first phase of the landmark development: Mayfield Park, an eight-storey, 70,000 sq ft office building, multi-storey car park and significant public realm improvements. The addition of a second office building to the proposed planning applications is a response to strong occupier interest in Manchester as a leading business location and in Mayfield, one of the country's largest and most important regeneration opportunities.
James Heather, Development Director for U+I and the Mayfield Partnership said: “We were delighted with the response to our initial consultation this summer and amid strong occupier interest in Mayfield we are pleased to be bringing forward this office building as part of phase one.
“Our vision is for a truly outstanding place to work and play, and I believe the amazing views over Mayfield Park this flagship office building will deliver will be unrivalled anywhere in Manchester. "
“Manchester is a first-class location for businesses and we need the confidence to deliver high quality workspace and maintain a pipeline of premium office development to attract further inward investment to our city.”
The Mayfield Partnership will be holding a public consultation on the proposed office building on 22nd August at Fairfield Social Club. Please come along and give your feedback, and input into the proposals ahead of the submission of the detailed planning application.
