RLAM Names New Ancoats Scheme

RLAM Names New Ancoats Scheme

The story first appeared on our sister site Place North West, here.

ROYAL London Asset Management's 21,000 sq ft office building in New Islington, east Manchester, will be called Fabrica, after the area's textile heritage.

RLAM said Fabrica, on the corner of Pollard Street and Great Ancoats Street, is the 'only true speculative office development in Manchester city centre', others such as One St Peter's Square being partially pre-let.

The BREEAM 'excellent' office building designed by 5plus Architects, will contain four floors of offices over the ground floor reception. Work started on site last year on the office and adjacent hotel building for Ibis, which will contain 150 rooms and street-level retail.

The main contractor is Galliford Try. CR8 Management is the project manager. WHR Property Consultants is the retained agent on the scheme, due for completion in November 2012.

Bit different looking, wonder how the Etap hotel in front of this will look though.

This is in Ancoats, not New Islington, isn't it?
Pollard Street is the southern boundary of NI, and this is on the south side of Pollard Street. Please avoid the idea that New Islington = Ancoats, lest the name disappear from history.

'only true speculative development' it may be, but at 21,000 sq ft it pales into insignificance compared to the 210,000 sq ft that remains at One St Peters Square

it's the city, duffusFebruary 4th 2012.

a lot of facade for just 1,948 sqm of lettable space...
