Investec takes floor at 3 Hardman Street in Manchester's Spinningfields
Investec has signed to occupy a floor at Allied London’s 3 Hardman Street in Spinningfields, Manchester.
The bank and asset manager will take 7,500 sq ft across the second floor, and will move 32 staff to the property in December.
The office, which is being let at £28/sq ft, will be a joint operation for Investec and Rensburg Sheppards, the investment management firm acquired by Investec in March 2010.
Investec staff will move from their current offices in King Street, Manchester and Rensburg Sheppards employees will relocate from premises at Ralli Courts in the city.
The Spinningfields property is already home to more than 40 financial and professional services firms including BDO LLP, Brown Shipley, BNY Mellon, Pinsent Masons, Baker Tilly, Barclays, Shoosmiths, Brown Shipley, PKF and Beachcroft. Other key tenants include Marks & Spencer and Pure Gym.
Michael Ingall, chief executive of Allied London, said: “The successful letting to Investec is yet another example of the ongoing appeal of 3 Hardman Street to Manchester’s professional services sector.”
The 350,000 sq ft 3 Hardman Street was designed by architects Sheppard Robson and boasts the largest floorplates outside of London ranging from 10,000 sq ft to 35,000 sq ft.
