Manchester NOMA development expands with steel
Planning applications have been submitted for two steel-framed office buildings at the £800M NOMA development in Manchester.
The joint venture between The Co-operative Group and Hermes Investment Management, 2 and 3 Angel Square will sit alongside restored listed buildings at the heart of one of Europe’s largest heritage-based regeneration schemes.
The new buildings, designed by AHR architects, will also sit next to the award-winning steel-framed 1 Angel Square, which was named one of the world’s most sustainable buildings after achieving a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating.
The two proposed buildings will collectively provide over 32,500m² of premium office space, over nine and 11 storeys, within the 20-acre NOMA neighbourhood. They will both feature spacious atriums and will have the flexibility to be personalised to fit the needs of major occupiers.
The developers say the buildings are likely to attract major corporates keen to relocate to one of the country’s best-connected city centre locations.
