Co-working firm signs up at Manchester’s Windmill Green

Co-working company Our Space is set to take 13,600 sq ft at FORE Partnership’s Windmill Green development in Manchester city centre.

The global firm, which focuses on wellbeing in the workspace, has agreed a pre-letting on the ground and first floors of the Mount Street building.

Our Space, which is making Windmill Green its first UK site, will offer hot desks, dedicated work areas and fully-serviced offices for a mix of companies and individuals.

Launched in Marbella in Spain, the company has several locations in Dubai, Miami and Singapore coming soon.

Kevan Halliwell, chief executive officer at Our Space, says: “Windmill Green was a natural choice for us given its excellent location in the heart of the city.

“Manchester plays a key role in our desire to bring a distinct and unparalleled workspace experience to the Northern Powerhouse.”

Basil Demeroutis, managing partner of FORE, adds: “Our Space is the perfect fit for Windmill Green. Its philosophy sits very well alongside the environment we are creating and we think they are one of the most exciting coworking operators to emerge.”

Set to open next summer, FORE has described Windmill Green as an “innovative and collaborative workspace, designed to energise and inspire”.

The project, which is halfway through construction, will include a rooftop terrace, its own apiary, a cycle hub and ‘living walls’ when it opens later this year.
