Hanover Building could boost Manchester’s office space | 1 August 2012

A re-vamp of Manchester’s Hanover Building could see the city’s available office space boosted, if plans set out by The Co-operative Group are approved.

According to needofficespace.com, the building could offer up to 10,000 square feet’ worth of offices. Currently, the Group’s plans are in the hands of Manchester City Council – which will either give a green or red light.

The building’s redevelopment formers part of a wider plan for Manchester, entitled NOMA. Some £800 million is due to be spent on the city’s central parts, helping to revitalise the area. David Pringle, NOMA’s director, was in high spirits when questioned about the Hanover Building re-vamp.

“This is a really important milestone for NOMA and marks the beginning of phase five of the programme,” he explained. “The plans are a brilliantly creative use of of one of our heritage buildings and the first step in unlocking the potential of the Group’s current Manchester complex.”

The Hanover Building will also feature retail space in its basement area, if the council gives its blessing. Some 900 jobs would also be created if the development happened, which could provide a welcome boost to the local economy.

Another commercial building set to be regenerated in the area includes the City Buildings, which Menmedia.co.uk confirmed will be turned into a hotel that boasts a Marco Pierre-White restaurant.
