Orbit Developments are the leading office space provider in Stockport with 12 properties in the town centre alone. The properties consist of open plan office spaces to small serviced offices suitable for a start up business. But, why would a business owner choose Stockport?

Orbit’s customer, Sharon Seville from F1rst Commercial Recruitment explains why Regent House is the perfect base for her business and the reasons behind her relocation from Manchester to Stockport.

Key reasons to choose Stockport

Investment 

In recent years, Stockport has benefited from a huge amount of investment from the council and businesses which has led to the development of Redrock, Stockport Exchange and a ‘Yes’ vote to the Stockport BID. Stockport’s bus station is also due to be developed with a modern design to enhance the look of the town centre.

Work/Life Balance

The creative types behind the Stockport Old Town brand have poured their hearts into creating family friendly events such as Foodie Friday, Stockport Old Town Fringe Festival and Stockport Old Town Folk Festival which has helped to regenerate the Marketplace area.

The combination of beautiful architecture, community spirit and quality events have drawn in the likes of Remedy Bar, Allotment Vegan Restaurant, Where The Light Gets In and St Petersgate Tap all opening new premises in 2016 alone.

In addition, all of Orbit’s customers in Stockport receive a complimentary SKone Card when moving into the portfolio which entitles the holder to a range of discounts for retailers within the town centre.

Flexible Options

Orbit customers in Stockport can take advantage of The Hub, a shared working space at Regent House. The informal space offers free wifi with a relaxed seating area, meeting table and ‘plug and play’ facilities for laptops, which along with complimentary refreshments, has proved popular for informal meetings.

Combined with 24/7 access to the office and onsite training and meeting rooms, Orbit customers work in a style to suit their needs.
