7 January 2014 – The application, for the last empty plot at the prestigious Spinningfields development in Manchester, was passed unanimously. Work is due to start on the construction of the building in late spring 2014.

The 22,600m2 ‘Cotton Building’ is specifically aimed at the fast expanding TMT (technology, media and telecommunications) sector and will allow tenants to completely customise their space, from lighting and heating elements to partition walls and furniture. The building has a number of unique aspects such as indoor gardens, a climbing wall and a ride-in bicycle ramp, allowing commuters to cycle in to the building from the road. The reception and foyer area will be open to the public, with a gym and wellbeing centre, cafes, bars and restaurants on site.

Michael Ingall, CEO of Allied London said:
“We are very pleased to have gained planning permission for The Cotton Building. This structure represents the evolution of Spinningfields and workspace in Manchester. We are going to create a unique product in the market that effectively combines work and play. This is not something that has been done in the city and we envision this to be the catalyst for future similar developments.”

Peter Cartwright, Director of Cartwright Pickard says:
“This building creates a new workplace model for the changing needs of occupiers, who are looking for greater agility and flexibility from their accommodation. The innovative and nimble nature of the building design makes the workspaces suitable for a wide variety and size of businesses, from single person start ups to large corporates.”
