Major commercial scheme planned for Manchester
Henry Boot Developments (HBD) is set to submit a major planning application for Colloco, a highly sustainable, 18,580m2 office scheme within the St John’s District of Manchester City Centre.
The development is targeting the highest levels of sustainability credentials including net zero carbon, a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating, as well as a 5.5-star accreditation for NABERS UK. It will also be compliant with British Council for Offices standards and include a host of amenities aligned with the WELL building standards.
Located at the edge of Spinningfields and the St John’s district, the 16-storey building will front onto the corner of New Quay Street and Gartside Street. EPR Architects has designed the building to reflect the rich industrial heritage of the area.
The site was formerly home to the LTE Group’s Manchester College before it relocated to its new campus last year. During the construction phase, 850 jobs will be created per annum.
