Creative office scheme launches in Manchester


Manchester-based development company Watch This Space (WTS) has launched This is The Space, a boutique office scheme for creatives.

The space will offer facilities from individual pods for solo workers to self-contained offices able to accommodate up to 12 people.

The 4,947 sq ft property is located on 68 Quay Street, near Manchester’s financial district Spinningfields.

The building was acquired for more than £1 million in July last year from St. James’ Chambers and is one of a row of Georgian-style townhouses.

Following a nine-month refurbishment by Watch This Space, it will showcase work from local artists and the ground floor design is modelled on a miniature urban park.

“This Is The Space really challenges traditional working environments and is designed to stimulate employees,” said Watch This Space founder Michelle Rothwell.

“We’ve given occupiers here the option to personalise their work space and make it really feel that it’s their home and be in greater control.

“We’re also able to rent space for as little as seven days, which gives occupiers greater flexibility.

“In addition, each boutique office features its own unique design with all of them having different flooring and light fittings as an example.

“It’s a scheme we’re really proud of and we’re excited to have now launched to the market.”
