National charity moves to Chichester House

Prime Property Consultancy has signed Freedom from Torture to a five-year lease on the 5,000 sq ft ground floor of the building, located on the fringes of Manchester city centre.

Prime oversaw a comprehensive refurbishment of the 10,000 sq ft detached office building in 2020, and occupies the first floor itself, meaning that the building is now fully let.

The refurbished Chichester House now benefits from aluminium glazing, air conditioning throughout, a secure car park and onsite gym.

Commercial director for Prime Property Consultancy, Imran Younus, said: “Another week and another deal for Prime.

“We are especially pleased with this letting as the building we occupy is now fully let and we have gone that extra mile to help a charity whose work we greatly admire.”

Freedom from Torture is a British-registered charity providing therapeutic care for survivors of torture who seek protection in the UK.

Since it was established in 1985, more than 57,000 survivors of torture have been referred to the organisation for help. Now working from five centres across the UK, it is one of the world’s largest torture treatment organisations.

Sixteen Real Estate and Canning O’Neill acted as joint agents on the instruction.
Ray Smith of Kuits acted for the landlord on the lease.
