An Edinburgh-based investment firm says that new plans for an office space development in Salford Quays reflect its intention to bring a “sense of community” to the area.
Hunter Real Estate Investment Managers, revealed its plans for the 433,000-square-foot Exchange Quay complex earlier this week. If the green light is given, the site, which has been dubbed ‘Canary Wharf of the North’, will be the subject of a major overhaul.
According to insidermedia.com, the £10 million modernisation project would include the provision of over 400,000 square feet of high-end office space spread over six separate buildings. A further 10,000 square feet of space would be dedicating to dining and leisure facilities, such as a gym.
Hunter’s fund manager, Iain Leheny, was quoted by costar.co.uk as saying: “Since the acquisition of Exchange Quay we have been working hard with our entire project team to master-plan the development and determine how to maximise its immense potential.
“In addition to producing some of the best quality office space in Greater Manchester, we want to create a superb, vibrant environment that all our occupiers can enjoy and be proud of.”
If permission is granted, work will begin straight away. The construction will take place in separate phases and is expected to be carried out over a period of 12 months.
