Work to convert a Grade II-listed building in Manchester’s NOMA district into a new office is underway.
Russells Construction is redeveloping the property on the corner of Dantzic Street and Hanover Street into loft-style workspaces aimed at creative companies.
Due for completion by 2019, Dantzic will offer 45,000 sq ft of office space across seven floors.
The new office will be next door to The Federation, a 70,000 sq ft former drapery warehouse which Russells completed the refurbishment of last spring. The building is now fully let to Co-op Digital.
Also nearby is Hanover, formerly Hanover House, a 90,000 sq ft listed building, which is being converted into office accommodation, featuring 18,000 sq ft of ground floor retail and leisure space.
Gareth Russell, director at Russells Construction, says: “With Hanover fully underway and Dantzic starting on-site, it has been a pleasure to bring some of Manchester’s historic buildings back into use, breathing new life into them and creating contemporary workspaces that will appeal to the legions of techies and creatives that are transforming the city’s economy.”
In total, NOMA will provide 2.5 million sq ft of office space alongside residential, retail and leisure space.
