In 2007 we were commissioned for the refurbishment of an existing office building at 22-26 Cross Street, Manchester. It is located in a prominent position in the traditional retail / commercial core and within St Ann’s conservation area. Completed in the 1930’s in a traditional style and faced in Portland Stone, 22- 26 Cross Street was vacant with the exception of the retail unit at street level. The building was in need of new life, to be brought back to its former glory and provide unique Grade A office space whilst retaining the internal historic character.

Phase 1 of the works, completed in 2011, included the sensitive refurbishment of the envelope and completion of the newly occupied retail unit at ground and basement levels. The internal refurbishment, which includes a new reception area and Cat A fit-out of upper floors, was completed in February 2015 for Catalyst Capital.

The building comprises 8 stories of office suites ranging from 2,670 sqft to 3,585 sqft (GIA) which are capable of splitting, with a total area of 27,770 sqft. The reception and common areas are finished to a high quality in a contemporary style.
