Major refurbishment works complete at Deansgate, Manchester

Work has completed on a £2million refurbishment project at 201 Deansgate, a five-storey office building located opposite the Spinningfields district of Manchester owned by Aviva Investors, the global asset management business of Aviva plc (‘Aviva’).

The overhaul was undertaken in partnership with SpaceInvader and EOS, with the building having been fully modernised to provide an expansive Grade A workspace.

As part of the project, a modern co-working reception space has been created, complete with upgraded amenities for office staff, including cycle storage, a drying room and lockers, showers and changing rooms. The modernisation process has also included upgrades to the building’s lighting and digital infrastructure, as well as lift facilities.

201 Deansgate is currently let to a number of leading brands and businesses such as Exchange Chambers, AIG, Interactive Investor and Evans Cycles with the 15,304 sq ft third floor currently available to let, offering 138 workspaces, a kitchen and breakout area, as well as meeting rooms, focus rooms and touchdown spaces.

The building is one of several Aviva Investors-owned properties in central Manchester portfolio, which also includes 11 York Street, 55 Spring Gardens and the city’s Enterprise City and Square Circle developments.

Julian Cobourne, Senior Asset Manager at Aviva Investors, said:

“We are delighted to complete our refurbishment project at 201 Deansgate, an important property within our Manchester portfolio which offers state-of-the-art office space with high-quality amenities and connectivity in a prime location. Manchester itself is a vibrant city we think is well-placed to thrive into the future and our expectation is the rejuvenation of 201 Deansgate will provide a workspace which supports the city’s future growth for decades to come.”
