3 Hardman Street wins Best Commercial Workplace at BCO Northern Awards

Allied London’s 3 Hardman Street, Manchester’s biggest office building, has won the Best Commercial Workplace award at the British Council for Offices (BCO) Northern Awards.

At 350,000 sq ft, the striking building offers the largest single floor plates in the city ranging from 10,000 sq ft to 35,000 sq ft. The building was designed by Sheppard Robson and built by Bovis Lend Lease.

Current and imminent tenants include BDO Stoy Hayward, Barclays Bank, Bank of New York Mellon, Pinsent Masons, Regus, Baker Tilly and the General Medical Council.

Neil Taylor, Chair of the BCO Northern Awards, said: “3 Hardman Street in Manchestercontinues the bold architectural and office programme for Spinningfields. This large scheme provides flexibility to the landlord to subdivide the large floor plates through its clever planning and organisation of cores. It continues the strong belief in quality and design which has made Spinningfields so successful.

“We felt 3 Hardman Street with its scale, flexibility of floor plate and significant contribution to its urban setting was the overall winner. Despite a complex site with a substation on the main street, the project was delivered in an exceptionally short timescale with no loss of quality.

Allied London Chief Executive, Michael Ingall, said: “We have no doubt that the architecture, location, flexibility of the space and sustainability credentials make this building by far and away the best office to be built outside of London and it continues to attract the highest calibre occupiers.  To have delivered a building of this nature within a regional office pricing structure has been one of our greatest achievements. We hope to confirm the completion of the letting program shortly, which will have been achieved within only 12 months of completion of the building.”
