Opened in September 2009, 1 New York Street was Bruntwood's first new-build office development in Manchester city centre. This Grade A office building is well located for access to the city's main transport hub, with Piccadilly mainline rail station just a quick walk away and a bus station and two tram stops within a stone's throw. Suites from 2,000 to 10,000 sq ft are now available.

The Exchange and 1 New York Street offices sit side by side on New York Street and are historically joined by a labyrinth of secret underground tunnels. They were designed to ensure the city's communications network was protected in the event of war, and were constructed underneath Manchester in the 1950s. The tunnels were removed from the official secrets list in 1968 but are still utilised today for distributing communication networks all over Manchester.

Designed with quality in mind

At street level, the building's reception and foyer area are finished to a high level of style and detail, with distinctive sculptural works of art adding to the atmosphere of quality and sophistication.

Designed by award-winning office architects Denton Corker Marshall, the 107,000 sq ft of offices at 1 New York Street provide some of the highest specification offices to rent in Manchester, with full-length windows offering incredible panoramic vistas from the upper floors. The structure itself is rated BREEAM Excellent, with double glazing and chilled beam air-conditioning ensuring that the highest standards of comfort are achieved with maximum energy efficiency.

Business opportunities for retailers

Occupying the ground floor of the building is premium retail space. In the heart of Manchester city centre's Piccadilly area, this brand new 4,000 sq ft unit fronts onto New York Street. With a floor to ceiling glazed shop front and the opportunity for al fresco seating this is a perfect unit for a bar or restaurant operation.

Every year, 18 million people traverse the Piccadilly Gardens area with its bus interchange and tram stops, so there are high volumes of passing trade in the surrounding area. New York Street itself has benefited from major investment to improve the public realm, with street furniture, new paving, greenery and signage.
