Flexible affordable Manchester office space

Our serviced offices in Manchester are helping businesses to access flexible affordable Manchester office space at a time when commercial rents in the city are rising.

Manchester office space is rising in value, according to a report from Colliers International, and the city joins Bristol, Edinburgh and Glasgow in posting an annual increase in commercial rents of more than 5%.

This demand is testament to the city’s appeal for new and growing businesses, and at the Serviced Office Company we are here to provide flexible affordable Manchester office space to help SMEs get off the ground.

With serviced offices in Manchester’s most desirable business locations, as well as services like our ad hoc Manchester meeting rooms and virtual offices in Manchester’s M5 and M50 postcodes, there are plenty of options even for small businesses and sole traders.

Getting the best value from your office space

Mark Taylor, head of national offices at Colliers, said: “Major regional cities such as Manchester and Edinburgh continue to see prime headline rent increase year on year.”

For businesses of all sizes this makes it even more important to get the best value from your office space.

Our serviced offices in Manchester allow you to do just that, giving you fully furnished, white label office space that you can add your own branding and finishing touches to.

When you need to grow, you can expand into larger offices on the same site, subject to availability, while our Manchester meeting rooms can be booked on an ad hoc basis to save money too.

An efficient way to work

Office space in Manchester is at a premium right now, and our serviced offices in MediaCity and Salford Quays are an efficient use of commercial real estate space.

You get your own private offices – so when you want to keep your business behind closed doors, you can.

But there are also communal facilities such as kitchen areas and relaxing, informal breakout rooms, giving you flexible ways to work that still make efficient use of the space available.

Again, our ad hoc meeting rooms mean they are left empty less often throughout the working week, as different tenants make use of the space at different times.

Go virtual and work from anywhere

Finally, if you want a business address on Exchange Quay or Clippers Quay, at the meeting point between central Manchester, Salford Quays and the in-demand MediaCityUK development, we’ve got you covered.

You can open a virtual office in Manchester‘s most desirable business postcode districts by having us host you at the Serviced Office Company’s premises there.

This gives you a physical postal address and a telephone number that you can give to clients, which allows them to contact you via our premises.

Again it’s completely white label, so you can add your own branding to your address and contact details as you see fit.

If you don’t need physical office space but you still want the credentials of a central Manchester location, virtual offices in Manchester’s M5 and M50 postcode districts are a great option and are less affected by the level of demand for physical offices in the city.

A quarter of London office space is let before it is built

Demand for good quality London office space is so high that almost a quarter of it has already been let despite not being due to complete construction until some time in the next four years.

That’s according to a report from Savills, which said 22% of new-build office space due for completion in the next four years already has tenants.

In the West End, out of all the major office refurbishments and new commercial real estate developments due to complete in the next 12 months, 55% of space has already been let out.

Ed Betts, co-head of the West End office agency team at Savills, said: “We expect to see more pre-lets from the insurance and financial sector over the next few years with the sector accounting for over a quarter of occupiers with upcoming lease events in the West End.”

London office space lets up 14% in 2019

Figures published by Savills in early September 2019 showed a 14% increase in the amount of London office space let out for the year to date, compared with the long-term average.

Some 2.5 million square feet of commercial real estate has found occupants in the year so far, including over 230,000 square feet in June and almost twice as much, 435,000 square feet, let out in July.

Nearly a third of this is pre-let office space, with 32% based in Soho, a sign that location is still very much a deciding factor when choosing business space in London, but also that demand is outpacing supply even as new-builds and office refurbs come online.

Serviced offices in London’s prime locations

At the Serviced Office Company we aim to provide serviced offices in London’s most desirable locations for businesses that choose to benefit from the advantages of flexible, scalable office space in this way.

Our serviced offices in London are just a stone’s throw from Canary Wharf on the Isle of Dogs, with stunning views of the River Thames – a truly iconic location for any business.

Public transport access is excellent, and there are plenty of amenities both on-site and in the surrounding area, helping to make your day at work a more comfortable and enjoyable one.

We have a rich and diverse variety of tenants, with communal areas that allow you (if you choose) to interact with your counterparts from other businesses and sectors.

More ways to access flexible office space in London

As well as our serviced offices in London, we also offer several other services from the same premises, making an even more flexible and scalable way to run your business.

Our on-site London meeting rooms can be hired as and when you need them, meaning you’re not paying for rooms that are left empty for most of the day, but you have a professional, private room there when you need it.

Alternatively, we run virtual offices in London from the same address, allowing you to have desirable contact details on the banks of the Thames no matter where you are physically located.
