Enterprise City schemes enhance Manchester’s new media appeal

St John’s development, Manchester

Property Week finds out how Allied London plans to lure media firms away from London.

Roll on five years and “it’s all happening,” says Allied London founder Mike Ingall, alluding to Manchester’s draw as a media hub and the television content being made in the city’s studios.

And he believes that Enterprise City, the 1.1m sq ft city-centre, office-led scheme aimed at tech and media occupiers, could have an even greater transformative impact on the media landscape still, not just in Manchester but in the UK.

It is a big claim: for decades prior to 2013, media companies hardly gave anywhere but London a second thought.

So what exactly is Allied London offering with Enterprise City? And how will it enhance Manchester’s appeal as an alternative media hub to London?
