Iconic city bar to be turned into offices

A plot of land in Manchester city centre is to be the subject of a major redevelopment project.

The Cornerhouse site, located next to Oxford Road station, will transform into a major mixed-use development.

It is understood that rather than update the existing fabric of the building, such as reconditioning  office flooring  office flooring and creating new space with  office partitioning  office partitioning, the existing bar and cinema will be demolished.

The site will encompass a mammoth 500,000sq ft of total workable area, and is already being marketed to commercial and residential developers.

The building is currently under the ownership of Manchester City Council and Network Rail, with both agreeing to appoint DTZ to handle the bid process and offer guidance. The council sees the site as one of the last big projects in the overall regeneration of the major North West city.

With prime office space taking up residence in the new development, large stores and chains targeted, as well as the retail and entertainment opportunities, the council are confident in the project’s success.

However, the council is not limiting who it targets. The site, which is located opposite the Palace Hotel, is seen by council bosses as a strategic location for the region.

The plans will, the council hopes, witness the whole area become a go-to destination for tourists and residents of the north west of England.

The site is also the city centre gateway to the ‘Manchester Corridor’, which is the overarching vision to create Manchester as a key UK area for the technological sector.
