Today OBI Property announced international business to business marketing and events company UBM is to relocate its Manchester office from Portland Street into 5,205sq ft at Acresfield, St Anns Square.  The space is on the first floor and has been taken on a ten year lease with a break in year five at £18.50 per sq ft.

UBM is bringing its team of 52 into one space at Acresfield from the previous two separate offices they occupied in 113-115, Portland Street.

OBI Property acted for Aberdeen Asset Management, while Andrew Rands from JLL acted for UBM.

Andrew Rands, JLL said: “Acresfield represents good value in an established city centre location. The building was an ideal fit for UBM to bring its Manchester team together into one space. The building creates a fantastic first impression to visitors and staff members alike.”

Richard Lace, transactions and asset management team, OBI Property said:  “Acresfield has recently attracted some fantastic new occupiers and there are now only two suites of 1,767 sq ft and 6,116 sq ft remaining.  The combination of modern workspace, unique break-out facilities and central location make Acresfield stand out from the competition and we expect to announce further deals in the next few weeks.”

Savills are joint leasing agents on Acresfield with OBI Property.
