Acting on behalf of the Aberdeen Asset Management, our client OBI Property has announced recruitment company Morgan Hunt is to move its Manchester office into 4,187 sq ft on the 2nd floor of the recently refurbished Acresfield, St Ann’s Square, Manchester.  The firm has taken a five year lease with a break at year three, at £16.50 per sq ft.

Morgan Hunt, which also has offices in Birmingham and London, is moving its Manchester office to Acresfield from 49 Peter Street.  They chose the location and building to support the delivery of their current and future expansion requirements.

Andrew Spencer, Finance Director, Morgan Hunt said:  “The space at Acresfield fits our business perfectly, it’s in a great location not just for our staff but for our clients and candidates who frequently visit us.  The breakout area at the back of the building provides a real centrepiece to the whole scheme and it made the building stand out from the other options we considered.”

Savills are joint letting agents on the building.

The building has recently been transformed following a £1.5 million refurbishment and is now one of the most desirable offices in the city centre with stunning new reception and showpiece internal atrium area providing an impressive breakout area.

The transaction follows on from the lease renewals agreed at the end of 2014 with Tushingham Moore and Christie’s, who occupy suites of 4,529 sq ft and 2,125 sq ft respectively.

Richard Lace, Lead Consultant in the Transactions & Asset Management Team at OBI Property said: “Since launching Acresfield in October there has been significant interest in the workspace.  The building provides highly efficient, air-conditioned accommodation that has wide appeal across a number of business sectors. We expect to announce another new tenant in the next couple of weeks.”
