Two New Bailey Square certified ‘Platinum’ for connectivity

Two New Bailey Square in Manchester has been awarded a Wired Certified Platinum rating by WiredScore, the internationally recognised commercial real estate rating scheme for digital connectivity. Wired Certification enables agents and tenants to find accurate and detailed information about a building’s digital infrastructure and gives landlords the necessary insights to improve and future-proof their buildings’ digital connectivity standards.

By achieving a Wired Certified Platinum rating, Two New Bailey Square demonstrates that it is designed with future occupiers’ digital connectivity & resiliency in mind.

Phil Marsden, project manager at The English Cities Fund, said: “We understand the importance of high-speed connectivity for businesses, so we teamed up with WiredScore to optimise Two New Bailey Square during the early development stage, so that we could deliver a first-class service for our future tenants.

“We recently announced that Eversheds Sutherland would become our first tenant at Two New Bailey Square. The Wired Certified Platinum rating was a real tick in the box in the company’s decision-making process as it illustrates the resilient infrastructure and high-quality connectivity that Two New Bailey Square offers businesses. We believe that this service will continue to assist our team in attracting similar high calibre tenants going forward.”

William Newton, President and EMEA MD, WiredScore, commented: “With HS2 on the horizon and increased investment into the city, Greater Manchester is a region of major growth attracting both UK and international business. It’s extremely important that buildings have the correct digital infrastructure to continue to attract and retain occupiers on a global stage. The commitment to Wired Certification by Two New Bailey Square is a testament to the English Cities Fund putting connectivity at the forefront of their agenda, supporting business growth for their tenants and future proofing their assets.”

New Bailey is at a monumental phase in its development with four projects currently under construction, including office schemes Two New Bailey Square, Riverside House and 3 New Bailey, as well as a third phase of residential development at The Slate Yard.

New Bailey, which is located just across the bridge from Spinningfields on the banks of the River Irwell, is being delivered by The English Cities Fund, a joint venture between Muse Developments, Legal & General and Homes England.
