Bruntwood has announced it is to bring the recently refurbished Grade-II listed Elliot House on Deansgate to market for the first time since acquiring the building 20 years ago.
Named after John Kenneth Elliot, who was Manchester’s Chief Education Officer from 1955 to 1968, Elliot House was built by architects Royle and Bennett in 1878 to house the Council’s Education Office before subsequently becoming the City’s Register Office in 1969, and more recently the temporary home to the City Library.
Providing 21,177 sq ft of self-contained modern office accommodation across three floors, Elliot House benefits from period features throughout, including original oak panelling, stained glass windows, marble flooring and ornate ceiling details. Bruntwood recently invested £2.5m into the building to maintain its historic features whilst creating open-plan office accommodation, flexible to the needs of the modern occupier.
On bringing this historic landmark to the market, sales director for Bruntwood Andrew Butterworth, commented: “With its unrivalled heritage, modern accommodation, ample secure basement parking facilities and accessibility to local retail and leisure amenities, Elliot House offers a truly enviable address for any business, fronting directly on to Deansgate. Elliot House is a prime example of the Bruntwood commitment to regenerate a much-loved Manchester building to serve the needs of the customer. We are marketing the building with a sole occupier in mind but equally Elliot House features flexible floor plates, meaning we could let individual floors from 8,300 sq ft.”
Savills has been appointed to market Elliot House with a second agent to be announced in the coming weeks.
