Serviced offices in MediaCity put your company at the heart of not only one of the fastest growing business districts in the UK, but also the country’s largest regional economy, which continues to attract significant further investment.
In November, the real estate group Landsec announced the acquisition of a 75% stake in MediaCity at a cost of over £425 million, with the development currently spanning almost 1.5 million square feet of media, digital and tech space.
Phase One of MediaCity was completed a decade ago and is 96% let, with outline planning consent already in place for a further 1.6 million square feet to be added to the already underway second phase, taking Phase Two alone to a total of 2.3 million square feet.
‘Significant scale’ in regional cities
The investment highlights how the north-west and Manchester in particular is perceived as a destination with significant value for commercial development and real estate investment.
Landsec’s announcement explained why Greater Manchester is a good match for its current investment strategy:
– Greater Manchester is the UK’s largest regional economy
– Offices in Greater Manchester are also the largest regional market
– MediaCity offers large-scale development with “a clear sense of place”
This last point is clear if you spend any time in and around the MediaCity estate, with its outlook across the open water of Salford Quays, its mixed-use developments, and its nearby leisure and retail destinations.
However, the next stage of development will take some time; Landsec CEO Mark Allan said he sees “the opportunity to invest and further develop the estate, with the potential to be on-site from the first half of 2023”.
