No 1 St Anns, Manchester offices

Private rented sector and urban regeneration specialists Sigma Capital Group plc have committed to 2,391 sq ft of office space at Orbit Developments’ No 1 St. Ann Street in Manchester City Centre.

The PRS arm of the company is currently managing the development of over 900 new homes across Greater Manchester and Liverpool in a joint venture worth over £100m. The AIM listed companies relocation to 1 St Ann Street provides the business with additional workspace to facilitate future growth as the PRS market in Manchester continues to mature.

The area of the business specialising in regeneration works closely with local authorities and private sector companies to enable them to work together more efficiently. Most recently, projects have been undertaken for Salford City Council and Liverpool City Council.

Matthew Townson at Sigma Capital Group plc commented:

‘It is an exciting time for Manchester, so when the decision was made to relocate our office we knew we had to stay in the City Centre. No.1 St Ann’s has provided us with a well located self-contained floor that we have been able to tailor to our precise requirements.”

In addition to the Sigma Capital Group plc deal, Environmental and Engineering specialists Idom Merebrook have also chosen to relocate to No. 1 St Ann Street by leasing 2,548 sq ft on the second floor.

Idom Merebrook specialise in providing bespoke teams of engineers and scientists to provide technical expertise and insight on projects being implemented across Europe in varying sectors such as nuclear, aviation and construction.

The company identified Manchester as a region with potential growth opportunities in 2013 and opened serviced offices in the city centre to support their existing North-Western client base in addition to developing business with new customers.

Within 3 years, the company made the Manchester office home to many services including mechanical and electrical engineering, transport planning, geo-environmental and civil-engineering and nuclear UK. As a result of business growth, Idom Merebrook outgrew the serviced offices on Peter Street yet remained committed to staying in Manchester City Centre.

Technical Director at Idom Merebrook, David Spacey said:

“I am delighted to be leading the relocation to larger premises to accommodate our expanding team.”

“The convenient central location of our new office will allow us to maintain the excellent service to our existing and new clients, as well as continuing to develop and enhance our overall offer”.

Adam Jackson, Senior Leasing Surveyor at Orbit Developments commented:

“The City Centre of Manchester continues to attract the best talent from across the region. We are very happy to have been able to assist growth businesses such as Idom Merebrook and Sigma Capital Group with their workspace needs.”

“The final floor remaining at No 1. St Ann’s Street totals 2,600 sq ft and with significant current interest we hope to be welcoming a final occupier the building shortly.”
