How serviced offices help cities to help towns

Our serviced offices in Manchester and London are a great way to get some professional work space in two of the most prosperous cities in the country – but how does this help people in nearby towns?

You may have read our article in November about how offices in Salford Quays have provided an employment boost for people in the surrounding areas.

Now research from the Centre for Cities has shown how prosperous cities nationwide help to raise employment rates and other amenities for local residents.

In its Talk of the Town report, the Centre for Cities points out that less than 10% of Britain’s land area is occupied by cities, but 60% of jobs and 55% of businesses are found within that area.

This not only highlights the economic potential provided by cities, which can serve as a melting pot for ideas, innovation and networking opportunities, but it also serves as a reminder that land in UK cities is at a premium.

And the benefits are not restricted to within city limits, either – more than a fifth of working individuals who live outside of cities have jobs based within cities.

We are proud to be able to help support this prosperity for both cities and the towns that surround them, by providing serviced offices in Manchester and London that allow fledgling firms to get off the ground in prime postcode areas, without being priced out of the market.

About our serviced offices in London and Manchester

We have premises providing serviced offices in London on the Isle of Dogs, and in Manchester with serviced offices in Salford Quays adjacent to MediaCity UK.

Tenants get high-quality furnished office space in prime London and Manchester locations, with the flexibility of meeting rooms to hire on-site on an ad hoc basis.

Alternatively if you just want a prime address but don’t need the physical office space, we provide virtual offices in London and Manchester too, allowing you to route phone calls and postal mail via a prime professional address whether you work from home, the local pub or coffee shop, or anywhere else for that matter.

The Talk of the Town report recommends a focus on improving skills in all parts of the country, while recognising the role cities play in their local economy and community.

We think serviced office space caters to both of these recommendations – providing affordable, scalable business premises for new and growing firms in desirable locations in Manchester and London.

Meanwhile, virtual offices in London and Manchester allow you to tap into the prestige of an address adjacent to Canary Wharf or MediaCity UK, while working from your home in a nearby town or even from a location further away.
